60' 2.209
330 6.035

Darlington International Dragway was the place to be tonight. On pass #4 The tires were blowing off all the way through first gear. I think there may be a 13.70 in this stock cars future.

No Mods (not even tires)

Nice, but did you fall asleep after staging on a few of those runes. the other r/t were good. Good job and wishing many more 13's to you.

Thanks for the kind words. BullittBro, the reation times are based on a 5.00 system. I guess you could say a 1.000 or above is sleeping at the tree ( Caught myself looking at the tach). But if you want to line up against me for a friendly little contest I promise I will be on my game. But I'd be rather inclined to run you in my '91 GT :grin:

congrats!

if it's just a test-n-tune session, who cares about reaction time. It doesn't really matter if you're just shooting for ET. I tend to worry more about the launch procedure than I do the tree.

Boy I just realized what a typo I made. 5.00 vs .500 reaction base. When I make a typo mistake I make a big one. But I'm still really happy that #85 Bullitt made it into the 13's. It just took me a while to adjust from driving the 5.0 to the 4.6
Thanks to those in the club for your suggestions on ways to drive it faster.

Does everybody power shift or can low 14's even high 13's be accomplished when granny shfting? The best I ever got with my '95 GT ragtop was 14.89 @ 93.45 mph that was granny shifted with 3.55 gears, catback and 70 mm polished MAF.

I've NEVER powershifted this Bullitt. It's gas, lift, shift, gas. Find a well-prepped sea level track, high baramoter, no headwind, cool temps, and rip off a great 60ft. Thats exactly what it takes to run low. Powershifting is somewhat down the list of "ET" variables.

I haven't granny shifted a Mustang for so long I don't think I could get used to it. If your cars are running 14.1's and you are granny shifting you should easily be in the 13's with a little powershift. My opinion is that powershifting does not hurt the car. My '91 GT has been powershifted from day one. The car has 48,000 miles on it with the stock clutch and transmission. I have never experienced a problem with it. So go out there and have a great time.
