It's been at least 10 years since I've been to the drag strip, so this was a learning experience! Especially since I used to run a Mustang. So high torque, rear wheel drive is all about wheel spin. This car was all about keeping it from bogging off the line.
I went fairly easy on the car, and still managed to get a 1.9s 60' time. ET was 13.8 @ 98.6mph. That was fun! Doubt I'll ever do it again, but my brother was wanting to run his 2011 Mustang GT so I figured I might as well do it once!
The car I'm lined up against here is some crazy Dodge Caliber with slicks and a ton of work. He ran a 13.1 @ 110mph! Didn't catch me until halfway down the track, though =)
