Being peg legged, you are going to have to feather it off the line. But I concur, a high 13 isn't out of the question.

Im pretty dissappointed to say the least. I ran 7 times and I have NEVER ran this car at the track and lets just say keeping it from spinning its ass off off the line or hell even launching it is a pita. But my first run I spun all the way through 3rd and chirp 4th and I ran a 17.XX. But after that the runs were consistantly faster every time and the fastest I ran for the day was a 14.6 and that was still some mega spinning and the launch was descent but not like i like. My r/t times were good with my best being .117 but my 60 foot times KILLED me with them hovering around 2.6-2.8 with nothing but tire smoke or bogging. Im still learning how to launch this thing and after talking to Wayne for a while on Sat we both think after some more learning on my part and some tweaking to the tune i should run 13's easily. Then with the 10lb pulley and and lsd, clutch, flywheel, BETTER FRICKING TIRES......I should be running VERY well. I am going again this coming weekend and I will keep everyone posted on this or a similar thread. damn those contis blow lol

lol ya contis really do suck especially once they wear down a bit. On my svt just with a couple bolt ons and a tune I spin horribly in first and the 1/2 shift spins a decent amount as well. The LSD and new tires should do wonders for traction.
