Normal for an SVT is mid-high 15's, don't know what you all are talking about.

well what do you define as normal. Because most people here are not expert drivers, so if you ment professional drivers (aka. C&D, R&T) then yes mid to mid-high 15's is what they get. But for most novice to amature drivers, then high 15s are good.

Actually half the drivers at magazines suck. Look at what most people get here, some have even run a 15.3, and that wasn't just one person.
