Well, sorry to disappoint. Best run was..
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.
I'll get the videos up tomorrow.

I'm in for the vids. Sweet that you took it to the track though. I want to take mine, and also see how my DCT acts.
