Well, she can tow.

Headed out to the drag strip this weekend. Loaded up my Mustang on a rented uhaul trailer. Combined weight was about 6000 lbs. Jeep towed it with no problem. Round trip was about 140 miles. It actually felt very similar to my F150 which is pretty good considering it had a solid rear axle and a tow rating near 10,000 lbs. I'm loving this Jeep more and more!

Is that Sac raceway? I'm usually there on Wed nights and Saturdays with my 335i. I should try towing mine next time, although she's still streetable with DR's on.

Yep, it's Sac. Mine is still streetable as well. I just tow it as I hate having to swap tires at the track and if something brakes. There was a 335i out this weekend and he broke. Luckily for him it was only a half shaft.

That day 11.2. Best to date is an 11.01. I'll get into the 10's sooner or later. It's a stick so it definitely makes things more difficult for drag racing. At 604 whp I would probably running 10.7's with an auto. It's only pushing 15lbs of boost. I plan to do a cam swap soon and crank it up to 20lbs. The blower is good to 25-28lbs. Just have to save up some coin.

Mine is an auto and I do change rear tires. I'm running low boost (10lbs) because I have stock internals. But boy this Mustang can really get out and go, it suprizes me. I'm geared at 373 gears. Nice combo. Kenny Bell is a nice set up.

My HD with 2.3 kb @15LBS I just sold for the JGC! SHe was mac daddy all out internal heads , cams etc.

But the other is the bad boy. 6.0 built low compression T76 turbo in the 2,700. lbs RX7R1.
Now when 700 HP isnt fast enough then I have issues.

And I just used my new JGC to tow my bassboat 12 hours.AWESOME!
