Reading reports of a kid (SMH) running a GT500 10.66 @ 132.... WOW!!
I bet they'll be running 9s in a month or two.
An experienced driver in ideal conditions will likely beat this. Very impressive for a track car not optimized for the strip.
Lol how much experience does it take with that fancy dual clutch?
A guy on SVTP ran 10.60 something his first time ever on a drag strip in a new GT500.
Of course an automatic takes very little to no skill, but still if an amateur can go 10.66 at 132, it would be reasonable to say a pro can do more.
I wouldn't expect much more out of a truly stock car.
Didn't appear in video he was having any problem hooking up by just using
what ever launch control it came with. I think he 60'd a 1.72, which ain't bad on
a street tire.
Evan Smith's video has been out for almost a month.
[email protected] at Bradenton with a 1.75 60 ft. Get some drag radials on that beast and see what it can do.
Since the GT500 has launch control, even a monkey would get an ET in the 10s. The key figure is the 133mph trap speed. Assuming a race weight of 4400lb, this would suggest the car puts down around 700rwhp.
It's going to be real easy to run these numbers for the GT500!

"As far as the quarter mile video, I'll I'll hold off giving any credit until someone a little more honest does it. If it truly does prove to be a mid 10 vehicle then I'll give Ford credit for finally being competitive again after 6 years of darkness."
