A couple weeks ago some friends and I started going to the drag strip for test and tune night. My first run I got a 15.8 w/ a horrible 1.0 + R/T. It's been a few weeks now and I'm glad to say I've reached my goal of 15.5 from when I started. Still need a little work on the R/T but I'm gettin there.

R/T : .790
60' : 2.22
330 : 6.42
1/8 : 9.92
MPH : 70.23
1000 : 12.97
1/4 : 15.57
MPH : 86.84

Mods are.. AEM SR, Kamakazi race header, HKS cat-back, FS UDP

congrats, thats a really good time, your mod list is pretty similar to mine but your times are much better, how do you launch, and what shift points are you using??

Thanks for all the comments guys.
Mike, Focused... I'm launching around 3500, and I took Ult's advice found in many other threads on shifting...

1-2 : 6,3
2-3 : 6,1
3-4 : 6,0

Ult.. Before too long the foke is gonna be going into storage for winter and when it comes back out in the spring it's gonna be lookin for some mean mid/low 13's

Your R/T doesn't play into your ET. Same mods as I had except you have a race header (and hks instead of apex'i). Similar time to mine too in all respects. Good work. Was this on the stock firehawks too?

I know the R/T doesn't play into the ET but it still made me mad when I coudln't get it under 1 sec. but it's getting significantly better now... all runs were made on 17" parada spec-2's.
