You should definitely be in the 13's.

I dynoed at 227/262 and ran a 14.5 in a 3200 lb Mustang Vert. Probably would have bested that if I got more than one run that night.

Nah it was their street warriors night. $15 for infinite runs and it was only a 5min wait between runs.

I'm about avg for my car, most people are low 14's. If I knew wtf I was doing I'd break into the 13's, but I'm pretty content with where I'm at.

Consistant as hell for a beginner, must be an auto.

I kinda wondered what my 540 would do at the track. Did you turn off the DSC?

I saw you running and nice runs. The turnout sucked compared to other years. Plus way too many people with street tires doing burnouts in the waterbox and pulling it to the starting line didn't help either. A lot of tools were there that were kind of ruining it for some of you that were there to race(i.e doing a burnout at the starting line while the tree is counting down).

Yeah it's an auto with the Dinan trans software. DSC was off.

Cool Yeah there were the few 'ricers', but that's to be expected nowdays.

13's is probably pushing it w/ nearly 4000lbs and a slushbox, but it could probably be done.
