Some of the problem might have been the track you were running at, because for every 1000 ft of elevation you lose about 5% of your hp, that in combination with bogging would be more than enough to explain a 16.2 at 81 mph, cause the bog probably cost you 7 tenths maybe more, from my experiance racing my dad in his AMG C36 an svt focus is capable of about 6.7 to 60 and 15.2 in th 1/4 mile... but what is was designed for was autocross... which is much more fun IMHO
