Hey looney guys

Ok so this guy tries to get me to race him all the time. Seeing him around town a few times. Problem is he has a new 5.0 mustang and I'm in a crew long bed... So my question is.. Does anyone think I can keep up with the looney tune? I never try cause I'm stock besides the exhaust but I want to get an sct and get looney. Let me know guys. Thanks!

No you can't. You have a lot of $$$ to spend first.

Looney is super fast. If you launch in 4x4 you will grab the start.

Just ask him to race 15ft, then you will win.

I have run against the new 5.0 at the 1/8th mile track. I had him until we got right at the end then he passed me. I run 8.7-8.8 at 76 mph and he ran 8.5-8.6 at about 85. Like said before a shorter race favors you but only if you can get it from a dead stop.

I can believe that with your mods but op is talking stock with an exhaust and the looney. (non studded) Big difference.

Yeah, the Looney is a fast tune, but a new 5.0 is gonna take it. We'd definitely like to see some video of it though, thanks

dont feel to bad if a guy in a new v8 sports car beats you in a 8000# crew cab long bed.

Get an sct and some tunes anyway though, you will still be able to lay a hurt down on lots of other sporty cars out there

To make it fair; just ask him to tow two more Mustangs behind so the weight will be equal!
