Optoson First time out a couple weeks ago I ran 15.9 at 86, keep in mind this is in hot(90 somethin degrees) and humid(was like 87% humidity that night). But keep running it down and you'll see your times improve greatly, :)

mlbbaseball also, practice slipping the clutch if you know how. This will avoid the wheel hop/spinning at the line!!! If you don't know how, don't start by doing it at 3500, try 2500 or you won't have a clutch left!! Takes some time, but u'll get the hang of it!

this is has nothing to do with your times. You just need to learn the getrag.

supersonicsvt I suggest a different track - find one with SOME CURVES!!! That's the track where the SVTF really shines. And the Cobras won't be able to keep up!

besthaticouldo you just need some seat time my friend.

with like 10-15 more passes youll be down into the mid 15s for sure.

i ran 15.2 bone stock with 16in wheels...

invest in smaller wheels and see what happens.

josejsanchez damn man..that first run doesnt look so well...glad you did a lil better..you should run a lil quicker than 16 sec...svtf run smoother at night without all that heat during the day...imo anyways...
