    Interested in find out more about this new drag strip mode. Hope Ford Australia does not turn this feature off just like they did to the burnout mode.

    More realistically, We would like to know what times are a heived without this drag strip mode.

    It's just launch control.

    Calling it Drag mode Makes it sexy to sell in the states, draws the fun police here...

    With Performance times of under 4 seconds to 97km/h, who needs a supercharger. Keep your money for a holiday.

    Yes if the performance does pan out to be close to that claim there's going to be a shift in the rotation of the universe

    The tuners here in Australia are going to find it tough to extract any more performance. No australian tuner has really got on top of the mustang aftermarket tune.

    Sometimes you can have too much power and it makes you slower.

    Best times from the supercharged cars are around 4 seconds too.

    Looks like the difference is with the 10 speed auto gearbox.

    Never though we would hear the day of a 10 Speed auto box.

    Still no mention of a manual gearbox time. The gap difference in straight line performance could be well up to 4 tenths of a second.

    Given the auto has improved by atleast a second thanks largely to the 10 speed it could be anything upto 7/10ths faster than the manual
