    What does that have to do with a gt500 trapping 135 in a very ideal situation?

    The gt500 will launch easy, consistently, and well under 3.5 0-60.

    Go drive a supercharged gt350 and tell me how it launches. I have, it’s childs play on lesser tires than the new gt500 comes with.

    I mentioned awd when talking about that trap speed because from my experience, awd cars have more drag and lose a little more mph on trap speeds than 2wd setups, power being equal.

    It seems like when the car is actually on the road and fight all physics, 500awhp vs 500rwhp, same weight/car/trans/etc goes to the rwd car from a roll, especially as speed climbs.

    Simple, if it hooks 1st gear and gets to accelerate the entire 1/4 it will have a good trap speed. If it blows tires off 1st and 2nd and doesn't start accelerating until it's already 300-400 feet down the track, the trap speed will be less.

    Wow now I know where the term come from "If you're spinning you're not winning". Thanks for that! Isn't this track info 101?

    I’ll give you $1000 if you can get a 2020 gt500 on factory tires to do a 300-400ft burnout at a hero track in hero conditions by just going wot at any launch rpm sub 5000. Obviously if you launch above 5000 you’re just going for Australian burnout a runway fun. Still not likely to do a 300-400ft burnout.

    Get real bro. It’s a whopping 550wtq to 600wtq in 4250lbs with a dct and sticky tires. Get the **** outta here with that hogwash. The car is setup to hook, not spin forever. The 0-60 would be sub 3 seconds if it didn’t shift before 60.

    It’s hard to get a 700-800wtq car to do 300-400ft burnouts

    The gt500 isn’t some torque monster. It’s also a dct so unless you put the launch to 7000rpm, or float the brake pedal, it ain’t spinning past 100ft.

    Can it be done? Sure. Will it happen? Not very often.

    You just said youd give him $1000 if he could do it and your last sentance says it can be done... Lol

    A burnout and spinning are 2 different things, a regular 5.0 can have a hard time in the first half of the track and virtually doubling the power isn't going to help that. I'm not saying I expect it to do poorly in the 1/4, I'm just saying I don't expect it to be spectacular.

    Easy. He’s clearly on the brake pedal to limit vehicle speed and heavy on the gas to keep rear wheel speed up. It’s something a lot of people are aware of. Very common hooning method to have fun with a car. People do it with fwd as well.

    here is a stock Miata also doing so




    What kind of person gets hero drag times and mph while doing brake stands through the 1/8th mile?

    You did read where this shit show came from? I said in hero condition at a great track on a cool night after a hot day to get the concrete or asphalt hot and air cool (almost word for word, go look), the gt500 has 135 in it imo.

    @Voltwings said I give too much faith to launch control engineers. He’s worried the car might do 300-400ft burnouts or something.

    I bet him $1000 he can’t without using the brake and obviously trying to. That would have nothing to do with the scenario I outlined and just reexplained (to help you/others catch up.) to reach a 135 trap speed.

    2 pages later you show von having a lot of fun in a gt500.

    I show a stock Miata driving by a guy saying just bounce off the rev limiter and float the brake.

    You now look like you don’t understand how driving a rwd car works. I step in to point it out in this paragraph and laugh with you, not at you, for this easy mix up you clearly had overlooked by not eating your wheaties today. Cheers.

    1.

    2.

    3.

    4.

    So where did you get the impression I was talking about doing brake stands and big burnouts for 300-400ft?

    I’m pretty sure I originally said

    “135mph will be very uncommon but I personally think it’ll happen on full moons in cold night low altitude environments after a nice hot day to heat up the asphalt/cement”

    But maybe you thought I said
    -gt500 gon run 135-200mph trap all time like easy Holmes n goin be best shit since ass n titties cause ford bitch.-

    •$1000 to get a 300-400ft burnout when trying to launch it at or under 5k and going wot.

    •last sentence purports that the gt500 isn’t going to commonly spin past 100ft at drag strips unless people set launch control at 7k or float the brake pedal.

    Show me vids of stock A10 5.0’s struggling in the first half of the track. I watched Justin from American muscle hop in his and run 1.9 60 fts on a base car running base tires. He went on to run 11.8’s stock.

    Stangmode has an entire channel with hundreds of launches. Never seen this phenomenon

    I’ve driven base 10a 5.0 gt’s and launched em in many environments. Did a [email protected] based on the dash app on a dusty back road trying to get some slip to actually get a burnout (Hahahhaha)

    This car is basically an auto as far as drag racing is concerned. You can’t clutch drop this thing guys. 0 chance it’s going 300-400ft burnouts or having traction issues just going wot at 2k.

    Beyond all of that, my 135mph trap speed opinion was based on an uncommon and great run.

    1- Hit 9s yet with that "900" hp?

    2- quote my 140 expectations :)

    I expect nothing less from a californian

    Plant it in a spreadsheet and I’ll consider engaging.

    I expect nothing less from a bald Cuck who can’t spell.

    I see the m5 has a bigger trunk thank the gt500, that’s a deal breaker for me. I might have to go with the m5.
