America once again gets rekt, this time by a korean shitbox
a fucking kia is half a second faster than a v8 mustang in the quarter mile
america btfo once again
Its too bad the kia looses in the figure 8 to a v6 challenger.
moving the goalposts now? a fucking v8 mustang, the honey of every drag strip, gets eaten alive by a fucking KIA. a kia with less horsepower, similar weight, and 4 doors
the mustang has been proven to run a 12 flat in the quarter.
It also looses to a car that cannot turn in a test that requires turning.
asian cars do better at the dragstrip
amerifat cars do better in the corners
makes one ponder.
Under what conditions? These cars were tested side by side, same day, same temperature, same track.
by the same non-biased driver? doesn't look like it from the video.
what kind of faggot drives a v6 challenger?
cool so it can run faster at another track with other people driving it. real useful that
The trap speed is higher on the Mustang, so either it doesn't have nearly as much tire as the Stinger, or the guy driving the Mustang can't properly launch a manual since the S550 is known to get into the mid and low 12s.
t. Actual Stinger GT owner
Yeah, it is the same driver. if you actually look at the video
I believe the mustang is on 275s vs the stingers 255s, so even then. I the stinger has the dct, so faster shifts
unless I see some telemetry there's no way you can prove to me that he wasn't sandbagging to shill the stinkergt. the stinker has had more promotion lately than any other car so you can't tell me I'm being paranoid.
It's an 8 speed torque converter. Then I'd pin it on a bad launch. I wouldn't be surprised if the Stinger was a tiny bit faster till the Mustang hit second due to a fuck ton of low end torque and having 8 gears. But no way in hell should it be half a second faster over the Mustang.
Wow, manual transmission is garbage. People have gotten Auto GT's to run high 11s.
I agree the V6 challenger is faggy but the V6 Camaro is now one of the chad 6 cylinder sports cars.
less elapsed time
lower trap speed
I assume this is a difference in gear ratios
This is all over the Mustang forums; SHIT DRIVER. If youre not getting low 12s in a GT you dont know how to drive
Or maybe, just maybe, the car is shit
More proof that bench racing stats don't mean shit in the real world.
It's a fucking 2017 gt, and also an aussie model. Fucking kia shills overlooking the detuned engine and comparing a 2018 to a 2017 model. Sad.
Everyone else is running high 12s except me...
It must be the car that is shit.
By the way the 10 speed automatic can even do it in under 12 seconds.
unless the stinger costs less than the mustang this isn't a noteworthy accomplishment
13.32 in the Mustang GT?
Wow, they must have been pussyfooting it or had a very shitty launch. Those are running 12.5 stock with decent tires
Fuck Kia, obviously a biased test
Traction generally or time spent in shifts
low 12 sec 1/4
An aussie Mustang GT is $59,515 MSRP
An aussie Stinger GT is $55,990 MSRP
you mean mid 13 1/4 there mate
aussie money is not real money
13.3 is a mustang gt? must of been the six speed.
$60k for a kia
does not compute
So this thing is a drag car now? Wasn't it an M3 competitor a couple weeks ago?
It got BTFO by the m3 it can do 12s flat
le AWD vs RWD quarter mile
a golf r is faster than most porsches
loses to a shitbox Ford
actually 60k for a ford
55k for a kia with nicer interior and exterior that's also faster
It's still a kia
it's still a ford
carwowguy rocking the center console.webm
People can pull 12s in stock why is it that this one is different hmmmmmmmmmmmmm maybe it's the driver maybe its bias
Also the fact that the stingers got awd helps it a fuckload
less than a second faster than a Miata in Italian drag
The Game Genie of drag racing.
buy 50k car
buy 15k bike
cucks in their cages = btfo
a 2018 gt with the 10 speed can run 11.8
bitch dont pretend like drag racing requires any skill other than what is needed for slapping the biggest and best parts on your car
Says the bus rider lol
The test driver for some reason wouldn't use launch control on the mustang yet did for the Stinger. Seems biased.
Drag times for a turbo car are with turbos spooled and everything. Mustang would cream it on a roll start. Also the stinger GT is more expensive than the mustang
172.50 is more than 173.83
Go be an illiterate faggot somewhere else
It is literally impossible to recover from this.
