:STRIP: First time in the quarter

Last weekend was my first time running the quarter mile in the SVTf. I pulled the ABS/TC fuse, set the tires to 29psi front and 40psi rear, and removed the spare and jack. Only mods are an AEM CAI and Screamin Demon coil with wires (not much of a mod there, really). I changed the plugs and oil a few days before running, also. Temperature was 45F with ~10mph tailwind. I averaged around 15.6 but my best time was a 15.309 with a good launch and shifting very fast.



What I'm curious about is how people are getting 2.1, 2.0 etc 60' times on these cars. I would surely be in the low to mid 15.2 range with that kind of launch.

And here's a couple pics just for kicks:
