Ford is going to be adding an engine shut-off feature to every single future vehicle produced, including the Mustang. What does this mean for performance enthusiasts? There’s still not enough details, but we do know that when your Mustang comes to a stop, the engine’s going off! The article below says this is an effort to promote fuel economy. When you apply pressure to the gas pedal, the engine will restart and all is well.
Everyone has had their share of miserable days (afterall, today IS Monday). I promise you, after watching this video, you really won’t feel that bad about your own problems.
800RWHP gone in a flash, no pun intended! While you want to feel bad for this guy, it was done on a completely stock GT500 bottom end and the owner has been having fun with the car for quite some time. With the addition of a forged bottom end, the owner of Blue Diamond says the car will be back within the next month or so with 1100-1200RWHP!
I was surfing around last night, when I stumbled upon this video. Either Vaughn Gittin Jr. had a kid, or this is an amazing example of someone who was born to drive!
Where were those things when I was 4? Either way – I’ve got $5 that says at age 16, he passes his parallel parking test on the first try!
So tell me, what was your first experience driving a Mustang?

Is Going Fast Too Easy?
I think I am ready to part ways with my supercharged 2007 Mustang GT. It runs mid-11s and getting there was far too easy. But I think I am ready to part ways with it in order to make room for a 2011 Mustang GT. The reason is simple, the new 5.0L is even easier to make run 11s, and ultimately 10s, than my supercharged Three-Valve. Not to mention all of the creature comfort upgrades between the two model years. After covering the AmericanMuscle.com 2011 Mustang GT for Muscle Mustangs & Fast Fords December 2010 issue, I saw how easy it was to run fast.
Since that article hit newsstands, the car has gone a best of 11.90 at 118 and they haven’t even hit with a shot of juice from the Zex kit that’s onboard. The speed is just 1.5 mph shy of where my supercharged Three-Valve car runs. The shop car’s track life is about to get quicker as there are rumors running around the AmericanMuscle.com compound that a supercharger is waiting to be bolted on this winter. Once that happens, 10-second times are sure to be reality.
It seems every new Mustang makes achieving certain performance benchmarks that much easier. We went from 14-second stock cars to 13-second ones, and now the 2011 Mustang GT can run 12s with the right driver and weather conditions off the showroom floor. The AmericanMuscle.com car was the first 2011 I drove and I loved it, smooth, comfortable and soon to be a 10-second player.
So, is it too easy to go fast? Tell me how you got your car to tear it up at the track…
Check out the Muscle Mustangs & Fast Fords 2011 Mustang GT, as they unveiled it early this month at the SEMA Show 2010 in Las Vegas, NV. Their brand new street/strip beast has tons of new parts from AmericanMuscle.com, and we’re really excited to help out!

This past weekend was the SSOTN (SuperStallions of the Net) Fall Nationals at Cecil County Dragway in Maryland.

However, AmericanMuscle staff member, Ryan Duncan, got more than he bargained for!
