fokuz is right, he sucked balls on the launch like me. We talked afterwards and he said it was his first time on the track with his mustang (same with me in the focus) and he said he was just experimenting with the launches

fokuzx3 that mustang prob wasnt gettin ne traction..i had a 16.3@89 cuz i was sliding all over the place and finnaly hooked up in third.so i had a good top end.then when i got some drag radials i got a 15.5-big difference.
in my old vet, once i got a 16.67@96 cuz i missed second and just cruized the rest of the way..same thing, just cuz you end with a fast time doesnt mean you got there fast you know what i mean?torqy cars might end at a lower mph but still have good 1/4 numbers

CivicHatch+SVT-F the numbers look good, but yeah, the MPH seems off... i got a 16.5@86mph and the mustang i raced got a 16.2@95mph

2000blackzx3 I see, I'll need to make some more runs to get more realistic numbers, but it gives me an idea of the times.

Demon4545 My car has more mods than yours (I/H/E) and taps 81-82 mph consistently. 87 mph would be indicative of a 15 second quarter mile. Either it measured the distance wrong, or something else is up.

2000blackzx3 Ok, but I remember checking the speedo right at the end of the quartermile, and it was right on 140 km/h...

Demon4545 MPH is way off, but the rest of it seems fairly accurate.
