Mk6 vs Shelby Mustang

My mods are in the video, and I am on Goodyear All Season tires. Mustang has over 500HP from the factory, no idea what bolt ons he had but he was claiming over 600HP in the paddock. Racking slick R compound tires.



That's right, a versus video ON THE TRACK, not surface streets.

Nice vid. I knew that was Laguna Seca within the first 15 seconds and I've never been there.

How did you not have crazy wind noise from the GoPro? Or is it not a GoPro? I'm also curious what settings you used. Protune, 1080, 720 etc....

He's running away from you on the straights, but you're taking a much better line and are more aggressive (later braking). It adds up and thankfully he's being smart and waves you by. Good job.

Liked.

That appears to be a 07 or 08 Shelby GT that came with 319 HP from factory. Minimally needs a blower to be pushing out more than 600hp. Not saying it doesn't have it just stating fact about what it was stock. Nice video and nice driving.

Well I would imagine with his helmet on and windows up he can't hear the engine and outside noises very well. Thus he rolls down the window.

No track day expert, but most regulations I have seen require windows down during track days to assist with safety workers if needed.

Even with a blower they aren't touching 600hp without some serious engine work. With basic bolt ons, tune, injectors, and blower, they make about 400 at the wheels. That Mustang needed a driver mod bad. Good driving OP.
