Time: October 3rd, 6:20 AM.

Location: Lawton, OK.

Description: Was on my way to Chicfila for breakfast heading south on Sheridan towards cache road, and notice what appears to be a mustang riding my bumber. I turn right headed west on cache road, and quickly the mustang GT, which appears to be blue, with white stripes, and some chrome 18 inch wheels, gets in the left lane and attempts a flyby. As I hear him punch it, I rip it from 35mph and quickly dashed his hopes of that happening. I pass up the chicfila, which didnt open until 6:30 anyway, just to so the red baron can give this mustang a clinic. I hit light number one and quickly turn off the traction control. At green, I drop the hammer with some small wheel spin and quickly leap ahead a car and a half. The mustang driver got a good view of my tailights until I hit light number two. This time I hear the mustang rev hard at the light in an apparent attempt to get a better launch this time. Again, I drop the hammer, this time with no wheel spin, and jumped out of the gate a car length. I hear him shift to second, and he dropped behind, and I hit it hard again, until I was 2 cars ahead. I let off as I approached 65+, and the hapless mustang does what any losing mustang driver does: to save whatever shred of diginty is left after getting his ass handed to him, flys by at full throttle. I chuckle as I turn around further down the road, and head back to get breakfast.

Ironically, I went to work later that day and ran into a civilian ft sill employee that just bought a C5 Z06. As I'm talking to him about his car and what happened this morning, he mentioned he ran into the exact same mustang (he described the wheels, the dark blue color, and white stripes) that was trying to get him to race last week. The GT tailgated him, pulled next to him while rolling, and revving his engine,. He basically said he wasnt going to waste the gas on him, especially with the traffic around. This guy got bullied by a stock auto LS1 GTO, then the week prior, tried to incite a vette Z06 with more power and 600 pounds lighter. Perhaps this guy was emboldened when the Z06 wouldnt race him? Who knows. But one thing is for sure, clearly this guy does not know his enemies, nor his place. Hopefully, he found out what his place was on the food chain, this morning at 6:20 AM.

Feel free to comment.

Mustangs are faster than 99.9% of RX8's out there.

Oh! He made it sound like he was Stock... He said that the dealer told him (the Stang) that he could beat an RX-8. (Which they can)


What did he do to the RX-8 Mod's wise... ?

even stock there isnt much of a difference especially when most people who buy an 8 are experienced and most 16 yr olds buy a GT

with the few mods i have on mine they are easy kills but everyone of them i come across seems he has something to prove to me so tries to race which is why i said the dealer comment i love it lol

Yo limepro, My bad, I was under the impression you were stock...


Still hard to believe that you can walk an 05/06 stang w/235 whp. I gotta take your word for it though. Carry on :pir_flag:

Check your demographics. The average age of Mustang GT owners is well over 30.

I didn't take into account the weight of the RX-8 (2950-3053 <-- Internet)

You said that you lightened it up. By how much?

mainly just engine parts the rotors and the flywheel, the lighter flywheel lets it get into higher rpms faster where the power is

MM & FF rated the mustang at 0-60 4.9 seconds and they seem to be able to pull the best times from a mustang

C & D rated the rx-8 at 5.4 seconds 0-60 and they are usually slower on their times
