    • What the 2018 Ford Mustang GT runs in the 1/4 mile stock, with Drag Radials, a 93 pump gas tune, and on E85 ethanol

      Lund Racing is providing some great 2018 Mustang GT 1/4 mile data. We had high expectations for the new Mustang considering its new Coyote motor features both port and direct fuel injection and it dynos 425 horsepower to the rear wheels completely stock.


      So what does it run 100% stock with an automatic? 12.003 @ 118.44:


      Lund then added Weld's Mustang drag pack which comes with stickier rubber. The result is 11.925 @ 119.87:


      What about with just an SCT Performance tune on 93 octane pump? 11.56 @ 122.02. Unfortunately, they did not post this slip:

      Now what about with an E85 tune? Consistent 11.3's topping 124 miles per hour:


      They are approaching 10's with just tires, E85, and a tune. Hard not to like the 2018 Mustang GT!

        Have we reached the point that 120+mph are only considered quick? I can't think of many sports cars that aren't getting there with little to no work.

        Yeah. With sedans running 125+ stock now what we are seeing here qualifies as quick but the bar just keeps moving higher.

        The $80k sedans I get. I'm more surprised to see it in a $35,000 car that you'll see highschoolers driving.

        True.

        The problem with these front engine rwd cars is that they have poor traction on the street and track without slicks

        The delta between stock tires and the drag pack was under a tenth of a second...

        Valid. Crap 60' until the E85 was brought into the equation. Curious to see the three different torque curves after seeing that. Maybe the track finally warmed up, but I can only see times on the E85 slip.
