Long_Johns 2012 5spd
I'm going to the track with my SEL tonight. It has 16,000km, 1/2 tank of 91oct, 5spd trans and silencer delete with the hole covered up.
Place your bets!

I'll bring my GoPro


16.86 @ 84.45mph with a 2.58 60'

It was my first run of the the day and I only matched it once after that.
I even tried a run without the box lid to no avail
If I had to give a reason why, Its a bad combo of traction/power ratio. It would either grip and bog (lack of power) or with a more aggressive launch just spin like crazy.

edit: actually looks like you know how to launch the hardest car possible.. soo i will say a 15.7

One dollar, Bob!

Seriously though, I have a stupid n00b question... is this 1/4 mile, 1/2 mile or something like that?

its obviously 1/4 mile. no way to tell what circuit course it would be and i dont think there is a half mile around him...

I'll take the higher end...16.42

Good luck!

16.78 and you will have a feeling of disappointment that will lead you to start modding as soon as you get home.[thankyou]
