Says five speed in his profile, so i'm guessing it's a stick. You should be able to get way better than that. What was you corrected altitude when u ran?

my fastest was a 16.07 all i have is CAI and exhaust. 2005 2.0 duratec. theres no doubt that you can run faster. yea that reaction time is big cause as soon as the green light hits your time starts. and plus if your burning out thats not your real time.

yeah u have to get the tires hot so that they stick and get a good grip and than launch and when the light is green u should already be going when the last amber light hits its on lol.

Reaction time has nothing to do with it. Your time starts when you leave the final staging beam. Hot street tires usually stick LESS. I avoid the water box and do no such burn out.

I ran 15.82 on stock tires @ ~38 PSI in 96 degree weather. Just figure out how to properly launch your car.

I think you should have definitly be in the 15's


Seems like more driver skill/ practice is needed.

When I went to the track I ran my car like 25 times back to back to back my quickest reaction time was .132


I got real good at racing that day I'll tell you

Fo'SHO I sent you a pm hit me back
