It really is. It's so cool to look down the track and know there are no cops, no slow drivers, etc. It fulfills my need for speed!

Oh gotcha, yeah it should do the low 16s. But like I said before, the humidity and heat kills your times. I'm going to go again in the Fall when it is cooler and get a more "realistic time"

Makes me miss my strip day with my AWD Eclipse which was hitting 1.7 60's on all seasons and finishing in 12.9s up at 5800ft asl but did get a 12.4 down in Phoenix and then ran the same in Houston.

Believe it or not, I was nowhere near the slowest car there. People run all kinds of crap on Friday nights. There was everything from 1986 Honda Civics to 2012 GT-Rs

I remember trapping mid-80s mph in the 1/4... now I trap faster than that in the 1/8th mile. lol

My first time out with my 07 yielded a best of 16.62 @ 83mph at 2,800ft DA in the Texas heat.
