Killed a Mustang?

Okay, this is just silly. I haven't done anything to this truck yet except change the oil and a few minor maintenance things. It's an 08 F350 CCLB. I don't call it a performance truck at all. Quite frankly it's a bit of a shocker how fast it gets up and moves. But I'm lined up at a light the other day next to a neighbor's 2010 Mustang GT. It's Cactus rd in Scottsdale, so in order to make the next light we just about have to drag race to get there anyway, so I'm building boost getting ready to go. He looks over and motions that he wants to run. "Meh" I think, fully expecting his car that I know has been worked on to leave me in the dust. Light changes, I get good grip and I'm off and make it through the next light, he doesn't.

What the heck? Only thing I can think of is he must have blown his tires off or something, because this truck STOCK can't be THAT fast.

The 10 gt is still a 4.6 with a whopping 315hp iirc, they are kinda slow anyway, sound nice though but still a good kill

I'm starting to think that the previous owner may have done some tuning to this thing. It certainly runs strong. Though the DPF is still in tact, so it can't be that much of a tune(CLEANING EXHAUST FILTER just as I'm about to head up a long hill with a trailer...).

I don't know if I'd say he can't drive. He does have another Foxbody Mustang that he takes to the track. Maybe he's only done basic bolt-ons and hasn't really given this one the attention his older Mustang gets. I don't know what all he's done. He just lives down the street. If it was the car that let him down, I expect he'll be tearing it apart now.

I only did about 10PSI launch. I had a bunch of junk in the bad, so it had a bit more weight there. I eased a bit off the brake too instead of just slamming it off, because I didn't want them to break loose on me.
