Best I ran was a 16.5, which isn't terrible seeing I am basically stock

Glad to hear you got your car back up and running

Wow..that's...what I ran back in the day stock. A few mods and that time will drop. The duratec's love bolt on's unlike the zetec where we have to coax the hp out of them.

If I had of got my launches down, I probably would have knocked a couple tenths off...just spun 1st. It's been a long while since I've been to the track.

Don't worry about take off too much. I either spin, wheel hop, or hook. I broke parts wheel hopping before. So now I pretty much just take off with a slightly higher rpm than driving normal and I pretty much nail the launch though it's been over 3 yrs since I last been at the tack. Way too long IMO

Same thing happened to us when we went to a 1/8mi track here in Houston. The track prep sucked. That's why I like going to Baytown, super sticky track...sometimes lol

Posted via FF Mobile I ran a 16.0 with minor traction issues. I think I'm gonna do a couple more NA mods and add a LSD. That should be fun.
