Who would win in a 1/4 mile????

Discussion in '1994 Ford Mustang GT' started by cscc27, Aug 9, 2002.

  1. On of the guys I wok with says that a 1999 VW GTi VR6 would be able to beat my 1994 Ford Mustang GT convertible. Both cars are five speeds... both cars are all original the GTi has 88000 miles and my stang has 56000... Please tell me that this kid has no clue what he is talking about and I would smoke the GTi

    this kid does not have any mods on his GTi he loves VW's and he is talking out of his @$$

    Well the convertable is slower then the coupe stang, but a 99 GTi is quick but doesn't have the torque to match the Mustang.<!-- Signature -->

    vettedude, will you please stop posting ignorant, senseless, and retarded comments....you said the same exact thing in another post, and didn't even have a reason to back it up cept for maybe that fact that you're a complete idiot who thinks it's cool to bash cars.

    you should race the gti and the post who won. and don't lie.
     
  9. Re: Who would win in a 1/4 mile????

    Don't the vw gti's only have 150hp? I may be wrong, but a kid I work with has a 2001 gti and he has told me that.
     
  10. Re: Who would win in a 1/4 mile????

    Yeah, I'm pretty sure that your GT would win unless you #$%# up shifting (like 2 times <IMG SRC="http://www.supercars.net/servlets/cMsg/html/emoticons/smile.gif">...)<!-- Signature -->

    It's ok, you're allowed to be an asshole.
     
  18. Re: Who would win in a 1/4 mile????

    Your GT is gonna lose.
     
  19. Re: Who would win in a 1/4 mile????

    If you're talking about the 1/4 then it's a tough call, GT is slow for a mustang, GTi is pretty quick and I think it would stand a chance, but the GT is more likely to win.

    If you're talking about racing on the nearest windy road then you don't have a chance.

  21. Re: Who would win in a 1/4 mile????

    15.0 sec. is a good time for 1/4 mile.
     
  22. Re: Who would win in a 1/4 mile????

    the VR6 is a 200HP V6 in a 3000lb car.
    the mustang is a 215HP V8 in a 3400lb car.

    the GTi will win.

    15HP won't make up for 400 more pounds.
     
  23. Re: Who would win in a 1/4 mile????

    No but the extra Torque will
     
  24. Re: Who would win in a 1/4 mile????

    oh no it wont

    The GTI would walk on your mustang. Here are the stats:

    Mustang:
    3450lb
    215hp
    285tq

    GTI:
    2900lb
    172hp
    173tq

    Okay, the GTI is front wheel drive; Disadvantage, right? Wrong.. With both cars having so little power, the launch is not going to be a big deal. In drag racing, the only disadvantage fwd gives is the launch. The Mustang would beat the GTI off the line, since it's rwd and has more power, but FWD gives more power to the wheel. Although it's 215 vs. 173, to the wheel it's more like 170 vs. 148, in which the Mustang being 550lb more will just not be able to compete in acceleration. The mustang would win off the line, but the GTI will have him by around 40-55mph.
