your time is pretty good for an auto. You are running closer to a high 18 sec. 1/4 mile. Dont launch by throwing it out of neutral into drive unless you are wanting to buy a new one. Practice launching in a parking lot or empty road by holding down the brake and giving it gas. You want to see how high your revs are when the brakes give. That will be about where you want to launch at. Practice this so you can do it fast because you dont want to burn up your converter. Good luck, let us know how it goes.

in alot of the auto cars ive driven, they did well at launch if you have your foot on the brake, and at the last yellow move your foot from the brake pedal to the gas pedal and punch it. you should get a little wheelspin, minimal though, from that to get your rpms up and then just keep it floored.. but yeah with your mods and the auto tranny your not doin too bad time wise

Heres what I do. Since my car makes enough power to spin the wheels like crazy in Drive I have to manually shift. I drop it into first gear, push brake pedel down and right you want to press the gas untill you feel your car start lurching forward. Then at last yellow lift brake and try to control the gas to keep tires from spinning. Then right around 6,000 shift into 2nd gear and mash down pedal. You shouldnt have to shift into drive since its only 1/8. But do not shift from neutral into drive or any other gear, this will cause you to buy a new tranny.

what are ALL of the mods you have? sry but i seriously doubt you got a sub 2 sec 60ft with a basically stock engine and auto tranny. i have to dump the clutch at 4500rpms with DR's to get sub 2s. ive done 2.085 on 7.5 inch wide street tires and that was about perfect. just one quick chirp, no bog at all and no spin or wheel hop. only time i ever did it just right. there's no doubt in my mind you got the 10.7 but im guessing the 60ft was around 2.4-2.6

i apologize if you really did get that time but you can shut me up easily enough. got time slips?
