the car i ran against was ironically an srt4. driver skill is the only thing i go to the track to prove. i don't like to launch my car because i can't afford any repairs, so it's very seldom that i run at the strip. but when i just so happen to watch people run terrible times i just shake my head. after seeing sti's run 14's and even 15's i just can't picture what they could've done to be losing up to 2 whole seconds in a 1/4 mile. it's all about timing the launch. this wasn't my best 60' but it was for sure the smoothest launch and best 1st to 2nd shift i've done at the track(no loss of speed in between shifts and held boost). also with having low expectations (estimating a 14.3) i had no pressure to good, resulting in the best possible run i could imagine. you can call my bluff, but if i was lying, i wouldn't take a 13.5 as anything special. i have no video proof, no dyno, and no witnesses, just a time slip and a memory.
Thanks, GTTuner
