1/4 mile times everybody?

i'm curious as to who's running their car, how they're doing, and what everybody's running?

i'm 2012 SE my best run was stock on 93 octane at 15.87 seconds, 89MPH trap time

You've matched MotorTrend's elapsed 1/4 which is pretty good since since with the DCTs I've been seeing 16.3s and slower.

I ran a terrible 16.4 @ 86mph last friday. This is with a 2.5" custom catback exhaust and IE 93oct Tune (everything else stock). 2.7 60' time also... terrible. Coming off the lights I felt like it was going to be a decent launch, but the car started wheel hopping very badly. I only got 2 runs in and they were about the same.

I was pretty rusty. When I had my Eclipse GST and went to the strip often, I'd pull 2.2 - 2.1 60's pretty regularly on street tires, but that was about 10 years ago.

I may go again this Friday and try a little tire prep next time. I did zero prep for these runs. Next time I may adjust tire pressures and heat the tires up in the water box a little. I may re-install my JBR 70a RMM too.

15.85 at 90mph. Atco NJ last Saturday temp outside was 70-72 no wind.

Modifications: k&n 57s intake and ford racing snorkel. Hankook ventus v12 summer tires with stock 16" rims
Fuel: Sunoco 93 octane with tank 1/2 filled
Removed: spare tire

I feel the car has more to give than this.

Anyone in NJ, DE, PA should come run with me sometime at atco.

Atco doesn't count because everyone knows the et's there are a second faster than anywhere else in the country...lol. Joking, it's a nice track and always gives excellent numbers.
