Those cars cost 150 grand for a reason. The ONLY one I've ever seen in real life was on display at the UAW-Ford 500 at Talladega back in 06. It too was baby blue with the pin stripe. I would be honored that he'd even give you the time of day, let alone race you.

You are going to get your as* handed to you unless he is the worlds worst driver. Having said that go ahead and run him in a safe area, no reason not to.

You can’t enjoy the highs unless you experience the lows…Good Luck Bro…;)

Those things come stock with 345 tires in the back if Im not wrong ... if your racing from a dig, his tires already basically rule your mods :cheers


You don't really stand too much of a chance of getting close to him.

it's gonna be fun. and you're gonna wish you hadn't posted the idea of running him cause it might ruin your 50 - 0 kill record so far against hondas and miatas. :cheers just picking with ya. video would be nice of the aftermath.

A friend of mine bought a 2006 with that was white with the blue racing stripe. I never drove it but road in it several times. That was one of the few times I have been scared in a car. We took it out on a closed runway and opened it up. From 0-100 it was a blur. He had done 0-60 in 3.3 with practice. That has got to be one of the most beautiful cars built. It would be murder but still try.

I drove a friends GT at Buttonwillow in California. The car was awesome. If you were to get on a road course you would need a 1000 hp to keep up with him. They are just natural on a track.

Drag racing a GT isn't nearly as hard as my C5 Z06 or my GTO. As mentioned they have nice wide tires and the best shifter and clutch feel.

Where you have an advantage is, to get the most out of it he is going to need to thrash a 150-200k car to beat a GTO.

They are solid mid 11's to low 11's so if you are beating true high 11 second cars then you have a shot. It's not going to be a lop-sided victory for him if he does beat you.

Once you get above a 100 though he's going to really have a huge advantage in aerodynamics.

He would have had a shot if he simply did beat 11 second cars, but when he says he has done it, its really more like random roll races with no 3 honks. Honostly, he cosiders himself lucky when his tires hook in second gear.

just wanted to say that this is the first time Ive ever heard of a terminator...and that even if he beats you, he is getting worse gas mileage and paying a lot more on insurance...lol

where have you been for the last 5 years or so? termis have only been the hottest thing on the mustang market since the fox chassis.

I believe the the nickname Terminator refers to the 03/04 Mustang Cobra's. I can certainly be wrong on this one.

I just so happen to hear a Ford GT pull away and it was loud and scary. I'd pay whatever in gas to drive that thing.
