stock tires @25psi, lunchbox removed, ....bad bad wheel spin through 1st gear and into part of 2nd gear, I did this:

rt 1.275
60ft 2.4149
330ft 6.7209
1/8mi et 10.2523
1/8mi mph 69.81
1/4mi et 15.8447
1/4mi mph 87.29

This run was taking off around 2000rpm, and as you can see, the 60ft was pretty pitiful because of the traction.

Now, with my MBRP exhaust, MM intake, and short throw shifter, I expect to get somewhere around 15.4-15.6 with street tires (I prolly could have got the 15.6 anyway, but traction was a big problem). The next things I'm going to buy (prolly next weekend) are BF Goodrich 205/50/15 drag radials, and then I expect very low 15s cause I'll be able to drop my 60ft considerably with a much higher launch rpm. The shorter tire will change my effective gear ratio, which will give me a nearly 5% increase in torque to the wheels and the massive traction will make the thing take off like a beast (especially if I launch around 4-5k).

God help my transaxle.

Chuck Norris counted to infinity.....twice.

I'm not sure what a lunchbox is, but that seems really fast for stock. I thought a stock ST was only running low 16's?

Yea i was gonna say thats pretty quick, but then again, it also depends on where he might be located..up here in Colorado, 1mile above sea level, it'd prolly be around a high 16...

I was running it at like 900ft above sea level with 40% humidity and low 70s.

The track is like the fastest track around here too.

Easily. With slicks I'm hoping for low 15s and god willing uber high 14s...that might not be realistic, but we will see in march.

Sweet Jesus! I'd love to see a high 15 when I take my SES to the track! That should be soon, I can't wait to see what it does.
