Armdrop racing, Mustang showed me tailights :(

Fought a lot of issues during the event but still had fun even though I didn't get to race any cars on my hit list..I probably would've lost in the shape the car was in but watch as I got gapped by ...a supercharged Foxbody.

Wish I had an event like that close by.

Your car can beat that Mustang but the guy out drove you big time. I've had the same thing happen to me for sure.

I know ...lol.The event itself is all volunteer work.Some races you can see they actually bring you up to the stage lights and then drop the arms..sometimes they didnt.But that race I clearly slept..and missed a damn gear..4th gear of all gears smh.Regardless it was fun..I know my car is decently quick.Supposedly that stang is a low 11s car and works well.

Good runs, and great event. The chick dressed in 50's/60's garb w/the arm drop was cute lol. As for the Mustang, he was ahead of you solidly in 3rd gear... not sure if you would have inched on him if you got into 4th gear, it was pulling pretty damn good. Those were my favorite enemy cars growing up, a Fox Body w/exhaust and blower always sounded so damn sweet. Glad to see people are still rolling in them. Get those floor boards done soon....

Feels like I just saw a super hero get slapped! Me and my son are still watching all of your videos.......that one hurt. As always awesome car. Not much longer till I get my 5.3 off the stand and into the GTA. Got a small pile of turbo stuff stashed away as well. Keep the videos up man, they inspire us.

Ha! I love the camera at the car show idea. I hope I don't look as funny as some of those people, but I probably do.

The dude at 4:06 had me rolling on the floor. First he walks like he has crap in his pants, then he approaches with this huge grin on his face. That hair, that hat, he is Michael Moore all the freaking way lol. Awesome vid...

Guessing his Youtube account is full of a lot of videos "Tuned Genesis Coupe Dusted By __________ On Drag Strip"

That car was ridiculously slow.

Re: Armdrop racing, Mustang showed me tailights :(

Well I guess it looks even worse when you have an 11s car running up against a 15s car.The funny part is that when I ran him..I wasn't 100% My belt snapped off during this pass.I let out after 2nd and coasted a fair bit in 3rd.
