SUre. Have a vid? Hell my ST has a CAI and i have only done it maybe 6 times and the best i did was a 16 and that was with my car out of alignment and spinning the tires of the line. 16.3 sounds more reasonable

I ran a 15.xx this past weekend. I use to get low 14 with street tires but I broke my trans on the strip. Whatever broke cracked the case an they had to pushed me off the track heres the run before the breakdown. I spin alot with street tires never had slicks. My r/t was .071 an the handas was .3xx something he ran a 14.3 at 96mph with a 2.3 60 ft (the slips in my car so these numbers are close) An I ran a 15.03 at 99mph with a 2.8 60 ft

The first 20 ft or so is N/A, after that the ZEX systems turn on and I just hold on for the ride.

at the time of the run;

50 hp "wet" shot fogger system
NX purge kit
NX hi-flow bottle and line set up
drag radials
*custom exhaust
*custom intake
*custom tune
curb weight of vehicle at time of race including the driver, 2300 lbs. This is one of the most significant factors in being able to launch quickly and maintain that momentum all the way down the track.
If you watch the vid, my front end never drops, once its up its up until I hit the brakes.
For that you need to tune your shift pressures correctly. And that I owe to Tom at Focus Power who helped me at the track that day, while TWO of his cars where competing against me. That takes ... well that takes a HELL of a guy, that's all there is to it.
