Default Ran the 1/4

1.977 60'
14.062 @ 99.28mph 10psi

I hated leaving the track so close to 13's at 100 but it was cold and the line was getting long.

shiutt. With a bit better tune at 10psi, 13.8 should be do-able. With 14psi or so lowish-mid 13's. A 16g is still in the long-term plans though

Factory torsen, stock suspension (waiting on springs), Yokohama AS430's one of which is bald on the inside due to camber. Maybe that's the secret recipe?

That's by far the best 60' I've ever pulled in my life and it felt good. I guess the track was prepped pretty good. I launched pretty high (for me) ~4000RPM. Usually I baby it a bit b/c I've gotten so used to avoiding wheel hop.

I bet the stock suspension helped you as well.

it probably did. The shocks have completely crapped out so it squats a good bit. Springs seem to be a bit saggy too.
