My first attempt at dragging the SVTF

I did pretty poorly, my 60ft was a 2.7 and my total for the 1/8th mile was 10.996 at 68mph.

I'll practice it a bit and get it down :)

Here are some videos:
1) I went up against a Mustang 5.0L

2) This was a 1000hp STI, I talked to the guy driving it, he was decked out in subaru gear, clothing, helmet gloves and all. It made quite a racket.

Let me know what you think!

Yeah it surely does. I revved too high and got some wheel hope, severely slowed me down.
