First time at the track with the SVT

I am actually pretty disapointed with my times. I had 3 runs. First I ran a 16.5, then I ran a 16.0, then I ran another 16.5. My slip for the 16.0 are as follows...


r/t...1.259
60'...2.459
330...6.816
1/8...10.395
MPH...69.41
1000...13.486
1/4...16.074
MPH...86.78


The traction control destroyed my take off's, so I'm working on finding a good way to get rid of it. I'm probably gonna try to make that switch that was suggested in a recent post of mine, so I can turn it off and on at will. Anyway, I'm probably gonna go again this friday, so I hope I can do better.

Do you have any mods. I have raced one and the best he could do all night was a 16.7. Good luck though

Thats an ok time, not too good, but respectable since the TC ruined your take off. My time is listed in my sig, so i also need to work a bit (dont have an SVTF but once i get my exhaust it should be closer). good luck next time!

my friend took his 03 SVT euro to the track and all he had done was an off road pipe, UDP, and AEM CAI, and his best time at the 1/4 mile track was 16.0 sec at 90mph. so I guess thats about normal for the mostly stock SVT's I have seen.

Yes I do.


And I know I can do better than a 16.0. This Friday, I'm going back up with the traction control disabled, so let's see how much better I can do.
