Nice runs. SVTF should be running stock in the high 15's with a good launch/shifts, so not sure why he didn't give you any better competition other then inexperience.

Videos can only say so much, but IMO the SVTF could've had WAY better starts (seems like he still bogged after the wheelspin on the last one) and faster shifts- when I'm really goin' I get spin going into 2nd too, and I didn't hear it.

well the svt yog from ff.com - he has aem cai, tb, motor mounts, exhaust, and x-calibrator. first run was stock ecu, then steeda, then hypnotic. he would have had me on the third run but missed 3rd gear....

he said he ran 15.6 after i left.....havent seen a slip yet though ;)

im sure he and i will run again....but id like to see how he does with the stock ecu against me now that he is better at the 1/4 mile

Meaning? I was there your buddy lost to my buddy not once, not twice, but 3 times.

They both have very little experience at the track (well both of them were first timer at that track).

Since some of you can't accept the fact that your buddy (yog) got beat at the track then maybe whoever is in the area would like to hit the drag strip sometimes .

List your current mods as we will list ours .

By the way, I'm new at this forum .

a trix xrs is a tempermental beast to launch as well. motor mounts cut back on the wheel hop, but not many people are using them.
