I run consistent 12.9-13.0 with 230whp/215wtq. My car weighs less than 2600lbs. Sure, it's not the best choice for a drag car. Neither is a Civic but plenty of them have seen sub 10 second passes. Neither is a farm truck but I've seen one run 9s.
I have a fox body and a Focus and even with the work I have in the stang, the Focus will walk it every time.
Russia... is... awesome!
