1/4 time for my 03 svt (sigh)

Well I gave it 3 runs and my best time was 16.9 with an intake. I feel I could'
ve done better and me and Kris (Kritter) who was with me over heard someone talking about how everyone is running slower then they should and My car kept bogging for some reason it just felt slower, I wasn't
t gaining mph like I would on the street. My friend Dan who has a modded SRT4N got a best run of 14.9 and he said his car wasn'
t pulling as hard as normal. Our track was resurfaced and and I guess it wasn'
t that good to start with

There were allot of people complaining about the track as well. I dont know anything about tracks/drag racing, but is it common place to run through a small puddle of water before coming up to the line? Then factor in the 2352' altitude of the track...

My friend jesse has a NA built celica GTS TRD. He ran 15.4 at that track and down in Arizona with more elevation, he ran 14.9. I think it's just our track
