16 feet i beleive...my first launch i ran the stock psi on the fronts with 32 and spun 1st gear the whole way i dont think the tires were warm enough either soo lets just say really bad time.the second run i ran 20psi on the fronts had a great burnout and got a really good launch..i launched at about 3200 or soo and i could have doen alittle better i think..the 3rd run was rushed and the car wasnt properly heated up and i didnt get to check the psi so it was a 16 flat..as soon as i get some more cash ill run some more cause i had a blast...that was also my first time i ever played with launching and 3200 seemed really good for me..i tried a little higher the 3rd run and i bogged down..i want tires and a sts maybe hookup a little better and shorten those throws..dont really have cash for performance mods yet..but what u think i should get??...ttyl

You'll be much happier with the results at autocross than you will at the drag strip. This car wasn't built to drag race, but it's butter out there at the autocross....
