The Bama Performance team was back at the drag strip with the mission of defeating their old record and setting a new one with their 2015 Mustang GT! Just last week the Bama team shattered the previous record set by Ford for the fastest naturally aspirated 2015 Mustang GT, with a record setting pass of 11.2 at 121 MPH. After only being able to make a couple of passes due to some issues with the stock half-shafts, Bama returned to MIR drag strip, setting their sights on a 10 second pass.
Maintaining their naturally aspirated record of 11.2, the Bama team kicked things up with a 150 shot of Nitrous that propelled the 2015 Coyote down the strip in 10.4 second pass @ 129 MPH. Previously, Ford held the boosted record with their supercharged 2015 Mustang GT running a 10.97 in the 1/4 mile.
When Bama ran their full tuned 2015 Mustang GT at the track the first time, the mods were:
- 1. Full Exhaust System
- – Custom 1 7/8″ Long Tube Headers
- – O/R X Pipe
- – Race Bullet Mufflers
- 2. JLT Cold Air Intake (Stock Intake Manifold)
- 3. Suspension Upgrades
- – Custom Fabricated Suspension Parts (will disclose at a later date)
- – Stock Bushings
- 4. Minor Weight Reduction
- – Removed Passenger Seat And Rear Seat
- – Race Weight: 3,650 With Half Tank Of Fuel And Driver
- 5. Slicks and Skinnies
- – 17″ Weld RTS With Mickey Thompson Front Runners
- – Hoosier Drag Slicks
- 6. Bama Performance X4 With 93 Track Tune
This time, Bama also added:
Pass Time: 10.4 @ 129 MPH
With a handful of 2015 Mustang parts, some Bama Performance tuning, and some good driving, the Bama team raised the bar for the 2015 coyote game. Bama plans on improving the power-to-weight ratio of the 2015 Mustang GT further and returning to the track with some more nitrous and a fresh tune to set even faster times in the 1/4 mile!
What is worth noting is that between purchase price and the modifications, a tuner and custom tune, a modified 2015 Mustang GT can run circles around a 707 HP Dodge Challenger Hellcat for just about half the price of a Hellcat. Pretty impressive if you ask me.
