5.0 Magazine Tests American Muscle's 11-Second V6 Mustang
by Chris Rose
A few weeks back, we took a trip to Beech Bend Raceway in Bowling Green, KY with the 5.0 Mustang & Super Fords Magazine crew to give them a taste of our Procharged 2011 V6--which currently holds the record for the fastest 2011 V6 Mustang in the world.
Steve Turner, chief editor at 5.0, wanted to get some seat time to see exactly what the car could do! It was definitely an honor, and he had no problem strapping in and putting his foot to the floor! The car ran beautifully, and you'll have to keep reading the magazine for the full details. However, I will say that we were able to get the car ready for the 11.73 pass less than an hour after a near meltdown when the electric fan broke from road debris!
After some quick wrenching by Mike Wilson, Dave Kaeck and I in the pits, we were able to get the car track-ready again. After 5.0 editor Steve Turner had a chance to put the car through its paces, we laid down a blistering 11.73 second pass at 116 mph!
So what's next for this V-sick? Do we hear 10's? Head over to the Forum and sound off!
