Took my car to the local drag strip last night and boy was I happy.
My first run was a 11.92 @ 119 mph with a 1.9 sixty foot.
My second run after getting use to the ridiculous launch controll I was able to get a 1.85 sixty foot leading to 11.78 @119mph. I think I can get a little better time out of it as I get used to the launch controll.
The car is bone stock including tires and air pressure .
All runs done in comfort suspension setting, reducing the amount of tire spin do to wait transfer to the rear. Sport plus everything else. (more…)
