yeah, i see what you mean man. just still find it really hard to beleive

This ain't no stock 99'. I've outrun two GT's. I was just mentioning this one as it was the most recent. He actually got me out of the hole by about a car link, and I had him by 2 cars to 60. I have lots of head work and a few other things most N/A people don't. So no, it's not BS. Just not common.

What do you have done to your Lincoln that makes it a lowish 14sec car? Stock they run low 15's

I've never been to a dragstrip, but a guy who had a very similar setup to mine, many years ago, did 12.9s / 107 mph.

Jason, our cars were quite even and I only trap about 100mph with a headwind. You might trap 103-104 on a good day.

Stock GTs are slow as ***** but throw an exhaust on them and they wake up. I only put 3 lengths from 40 to 130 on my friend's '01 with an exhaust.
