Long_Johns 2012 5spd

I'm going to the track with my SEL tonight. It has 16,000km, 1/2 tank of 91oct, 5spd trans and silencer delete with the hole covered up.
Place your bets!

I'll bring my GoPro

Update:

16.86 @ 84.45mph with a 2.58 60'

It was my first run of the the day and I only matched it once after that.
I even tried a run without the box lid to no avail
If I had to give a reason why, Its a bad combo of traction/power ratio. It would either grip and bog (lack of power) or with a more aggressive launch just spin like crazy.
