    Not saying you didn't do it, it's just physics has a hard time arguing that that was possible. How much did your car weigh at the time you made that pass?

    He scanned the slip. I would have to say that that low of elevation deffinately helped out.

    Not true. Opposite lock over on NASIOC went like 12.49 @ 111 I believe. With a fastest trap of 112.xx He was still on the TD04 and the 2.0L.

    12.493@111.45 Stock Turbo 2.0 WRX - NASIOC

    Its definitely possible. OP who tuned your car?

    I'm behind the times apparently. I quoted #2 w/o nitrous. Still, his time and trap are dubious.

    Now, the temp is 10 under corrcetion factor, and at that elevation, and assuming that it was dry that day, it would be difficult to find better atmospheric conditions to make greater horsepower with sufficient temperature to manage traction on this continent.
    I commend you on your very impressive run and your quality tune-up. And quite an impressive 60' for your first time at the dragstrip.
    not first time at a drag strip.. i go 1/8 mile all the time... the was first time at a quarter mile

    again... that goes into driving, tuning, temp and elevation... and i was on pump gas.

    Elevation takes a big bite. Another guy on wrxtuners had about the same time on his td04. Nice times.

    The 6 speed will probably actually slow down your 1/4 mile. Just FYI. Great for autocross though. Have you considered PPG's?

    What are your goals for the car?

    1000' - 10.675
    1/4 - 12.789 @ 108.96 mph
