Default 2001 gt vs 2012 camaro rs

I know very little about my mustang having bought it in February and not having done any mods myself. A coworker brought his moms new camaro rs v6 auto to work today. After work we decided to race em. I control no traction control, I'm working out an ABS problem and no third , i gotta replace the synchronizer. We line up and punch em I spin all through first and he jumps out maybe half a car so I grab second and not only close the gap but pull ahead a car. I hit redline and grab 4th and begin seeing him in my rear view and let off for the coming turn ahead.

I'm not expert on the new Camaros or mustangs but would this be the usual out come for two stock cars?

Bullsh!t a 2nd to 4th shift would have killed any race. No way your comin back from that unless the kid in mommies car missed more gears than you. But thanks for sharing.

A ragged out 2V GT with no third gear.......with the driver mod of "spinning all the way through first"

VS This:

The numbers on this car are remarkably similar to Camaros we've tested in the past. With 323 horsepower available from the 3.6-liter V-6, we would expect some startling acceleration numbers. Unfortunately, our test car weighed in at 4105 pounds.


While it's a pig................the outcome of this race is highly suspect......sorry

well, its getting cold outside again...****in reached down to the 40s the other day.  almost can't wait for the snowy stuff............................almost i don't have a twitter account nor have i ever been to a twitter web page (update: i have), but if i ever did decide to take the plunge i will let you know by posting it in this awesome little box of text (update: not really)! i like tacos lol...though between crunchy tacos and soft tacos i cannot really say which one is better.  sometimes, the mess a crunchy taco leaves behind is a little annoying while the soft taco just doesn't have the same taste... cake is so much better than pie no, srsly.  **** pie. ****ing

No third gear? Four thousand pounds seems almost too much weight for a new Camaro sixxer auto though.

I have seen them at the track here a few times and they are pretty slow for how much power they have

I came back in 2nd. I told the story as it happened. Him driving an auto its doubtful that he missed a shift. I didn't miss third as posted the synchronized for third is gone so no third. I was asking if a stock 01 gt should beat a stock v6 auto rs camaro?

1. It doesn't matter if you missed it or if it is broken, fact is 3rd was never used.

2. Barely if the GT is driven well (Driven well means minimal spinning and using ALL the gears.)

My apologies on the double thread. I posted it from the phone and when I looked again it was still on the same screen so I hit submit again. It really runs quite well for an as you say " ragged out" 2001 gt with no third. I bought it used for $1500 needing two fenders and a bumper. It went down as I said. With no TC because of a bad ABS sensor a hard launch or even an easy roll to full throttle leads to wheel spin. For that that matter a hard shift into second is wheel spin to 55 MPH. The story I got from the previous owner is that it was a former highway chase car for the local county police department. Truth or not I'm not sure yet. I searched on YouTube and couldn't find any races between a v6 camaro and a mustang gt. I just wondered if the gt beats the rs stock vs stock or not. If not then perhaps there is some truth to the PO s story. It has some flowmaster mufflers and that's all visibly other than aftermarket rear bumper and tails. As I said I know very little about the vehicle as he said the pd did the performance mods he just concentrated on appearance. I thinks its stock but no way to tell if the computer has been tweaked. I do know that the PD only uses o.e local dealerships for all maintenance and other things for all of their vehicles be they chargers or crown vice or vehicles they size from busts. I just know I took him out with TC I may have even got him better than I did.

Dude it's a point and shoot automatic against your ragged out car with no 3rd gear and spinning all the way thru 1st? Just cant happen the way you describe it. Ask the mod to delete this before you get kicked to much.
