For those that were asking about the quarter mile times: We intentionally ran this as an off-the-cuff race, and there was no staff available to run the timing gear. However, the mustang wasn't running it's ideal times because this wasn't a fully prepped surface and perfect conditions. It was the REAL WORLD. The Stinger was on the same terms as the Mustang. This is what would happen in real life if you raced these two from a light. (Not that we condone that sort of thing .... #TakeItToTheTrack )

      Throttle house you really need to stop trying to sell this bullshit story!! Prepped tracks, its all a bullshit excuse for a rigged video! I know ricer fans are stupid enough to believe this shit but there is no chance. I watched a stock 10sp 2018 run a 12.00 on the first pass ever down the track in 90 degree heat, stock radials on a track well above sea level. There is no way that Kia turd will run anything near 12.00. Stop trying to sell this bullshit story!! First it barely edges out a 2017 and now it smokes a 2018 that is a full second faster in the quarter mile stock/stock. If you want the Kia to win fair and square, race them in the snow...I'm sure that Kia would actually win in that situation.

      You guys are a joke you claim this is like a real world test. Motor Trend who does street test on non prepped tracks too and get way different results. But they do not use modified cars just factory setups that way this test is invalid. Why are you not using a Stock Mustang setup, that Mustang looks like it has after market springs and not factory springs. It is setting too low to be a factory setup. Which would change the results of the Mustang. The wheels are not factory too, which makes this test invalid. A mid 13 second car on the street is not going to out run a a low 12 second street car. The Mustang you ran was not on factory wheels either but after market wheel. The Mustang is setup from the factory for the stock wheels not after market wheels.

      So this professional driver is not going to warm up the tires on the rear wheel drive car the way it was designed to do. Way to compare cars

      I am not so sure that the Mustang would ever surpass the Stinger in top speed run. As per Google, the top speed for Mustang with 10-speed tranny is 157 mph (limited) while the Stinger's top speed is 167 mph (also limited). This may be a reason to have another run in top speed on a 2.5 mile straight runway.

      The track victory for the Mustang was a landslide, 3+ sec on a short track is a lot. This was not a very good matchup.

      Great work on the video and editing, and I love the detailed driving impressions.

      Do you think the G70's LSD makes a big difference over the Stinger's lack of one?

      If only they would take off that KIA name away from the Stinger... I might take it seriously. This was depressing to watch though... :'(.. I am a Stang Guy, through n through... but I would be lying if I didnt ALWAYS supported the UNDERDOG. Good job, Stinger.
