so far my best time in the 1/8th is a 9.77....dont have slip in front of me to post 60' foot times and stuff....but to launch an SVT you really need to dump the clutch about 5300 rpm..smaller, lighter wheels helped too.

pretty nice out...high 70s. not humid. pretty nice.

that was with a stock tune, smaller then stock exhaust. and my first time racing an svt.

as the car sits now...mid to high 14's. i think with some practice i could pull a 14.6
