I can't imagine dumping the clutch at 5300
1700??? are you sure your driving an SVT???? i have never felt wheel hop in my car...

if i tried launching my car at 1700 my 60" foot times would be almost 3 seconds....iono do you have slips?

1FSTFOC good news kids .. track meet on july 12th as well... theres a good chance ill be at both, soooo i better see you guys at at least one. there was a douchetool there this weekend that kept running 17.9's with his stock 2 door. . i was able to run a 15.6 in 95 degree weather. i was SUPER stoked about my .046 reaction though.

besthaticouldo i can drop a good hundred or so pounds...

that also doesnt make up for crappy tires which spun like no other...replaced with g-force sports

exhaust leaks fixed...massive power drain, replaced with 2.5 instead of 2.2 inch exhaust

stock cat replaced...with high flow cat

i think everything ive done since then added up...i could take a half second off.

unfortunately i dont get a LOT of time at a track. so my driving isnt perfect. but i should be able to do it.

you dont think with nothing in the car. better tires. a full tune....i think its doable

Not really, no. A tune will drop a couple tenths total. The weight is according to how much you take out. 100 lbs=1/10th. So with a tune, and minus 300 lbs you can drop a half of a second. That would put you at the number (close to) you want, only problem is where you gonna pull out 300 lbs?
