4 years later, the drag strip felt the fury of my SVTF...

Ok, so I went to the drag strip when I first got my car; long before we could turn off the T/C. I bogged super bad, probably had a 9 hour 60' time. Long story short, 16.1 @ 99.1mph. Yeah, bad. Today, I woke up early, and took the SVTF to the track after the turbo, intercooler and tuning...I'll just break it down...

These runs are IN ORDER (note my improvement)

60' = 2.643
1/4 = 14.32
MPH = 106.43

60' = 2.641
1/4 = 14.21
MPH = 107.14

60' = 2.629
1/4 = 14.16
MPH = 106.60

WORST Run
60' = 2.731
1/4 = 14.49
MPH = 102.72

60' = 2.406
1/4 = 14.178
MPH = 106.85

This run marked my car as an OFFICAL 13 second car!
60' = 2.256
1/4 = 13.90
MPH = 106.79

60' = 2.365
1/4 = 13.97
MPH = 106.18

The BEST run of the day...solid gold baby!!
60' = 2.181 <~ I rocked the launch!
1/4 = 13.69
MPH = 105.68
(on this golden run, my ashtray actually flew out and hit my arm!)

After this I had consistant 13.9's and then I got hungry so I ate, then I was hot so I left. A lot of 9 second muscle cars came and started breaking and holding up the line, so I just decided to bail out and call it a day.

Not bad for a guy that "Sucks at drag racing."

Oh, and as they say, the proof is in the pudding....I like the butterscotch flavor.

I dont think I can do much better on the 60' w/o drag radials. I did fail to mention this was on WORN OUT (worse than a vegas hooker) Hankook RS2's. They did grip, but I had to feather it and come out of the hole pretty softly. I also didnt power shift any gears. Today was all about finesse and getting a feel for the car.

i think you have potential to go lower, plus you can turn the boost up a lot more and still be safe.

sweet and very good job
I wonder what a traction bar from jegs can do for you. I dont think anyone else has one on here.

The lakewood bars would help with wheel hop for sure - but says (Exc. SVT) which is a no go for me/ us.
