That STI was in a different zip code when you finished

Launch at lower RPMs, don't drop it and keep the revs up down the track.

Ah ok. Well if you bring up those rpms you can get that oh so magical single digit number.

how did you launch at 2500 without bogging, I tried launching at 3500 and bogged bad my best time was 10.24 1/8 with a 2.52 reation time and speed was 70.54 mph, that was launching at 4200 and with wheel spin I couldn't hook up all night it was either bog or spin no inbetween, my best mph was 71.26mph and best 60 foot was 2.51 looking into drag radials I think I might drop into the 9s I spin most of the was through fist even after some really great looking burnouts, wasn't happy with my time but was happy with all the tire smoke
