Re-match went Wednesday, clear skies, awesome turnout, no rain-out this time... but Way too Hot!

DA was over 4200' when I left work at 4:00pm

So I never even bothered to swap my 28" DR's on this time.
Ran at full street weight with my Spare, BakFlip Tonneau and 90lb 20's/Grapplers.
Pretty sad to see no Ford F-150's made it out to play,
really was hoping to line up with a new Eco Boost Twin Turbo V6.

The DA never dropped below 3500' even at 9:00 pm, so I was only expecting High 14's,
maybe even Low 15's in the heat.
Once again, no track prep so I spun in 2WD pretty bad.
PB on reaction time though.... I switched to AWD for most of the remainder of my passes.

My best runs were 14.533/94.03 (.004 reaction time)
and best of the night, 14.498/93.96... a new personal best for full street weight on my 305/50R20 Grappler's, in AWD.
Happy to see my 60' times were down to 2.0's even with my big tires,
typically in the 2.4's before the Torque Converter swap.

Slips...(car#8) first slip shows a near perfect light,
but in 2wd I totally lost traction and spun through most of first gear and had to back off the throttle...only 15 second pass I've had since I was stock LOL!
Middle Slip was my Personal Best R/T ever!, Third slip new PB with Full Weight/Grapplers


Ran #'s through Dragtimes DA calculator, 13.876/98.238 substantially slower than my DR #'s (listed in my sig)

Sure the "2012" mustang was really a 2012? Could be a 2010 which only has the 4.6

I asked the Owner himself what year, what motor, what mods he had etc..
He told me (and Showed me) it was a bone stock 2012, 5.0L not even broke in yet,
1700 clicks on the clock.

Also those wheels on it were a factory option, not available until the 5.0's came out

You do realize that pretty much every modern mustang factory wheel is sold aftermarket now? Those are RTR wheels and are sold in the aftermarket as is the whole RTR body kit

BlackRamHemi,

How do you feel the Tourque converter helped your every day driving and if you don't mind sharing, how much did it cost, and/or where did you get? The performance gains are pretty straight forward, I'm curious though if helped smooth out the transmission at all becuase these trucks have some rough shifts when just cruising along.
