    That's a awfully fast trap speed for those mods. No VF39-16G?

    I'd believe it if he had a 2.5 60ft... but with a 1.8 60ft there's no way no how that the trap is that high.. especially with a first time at the track. He probably read the wrong side of the time slip.

    I am not saying that it cannot be done, but those are some stellar times for what you have and a first hit at a track. The MPH is extraordinary, and the 60' is astounding.

    I don't know that much about quarter mile stuff, er anything. But driving has very little to do with gaining just under 24mph on the back half. That is horsepower, plain and simple. Like the guys that do know about drag racing say; "MPH is horsepower. Elapsed time is managing that horsepower."
    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.

    Pardon if we have a hard time believing that. Most people will trap 103-104 on a perfect run with an aggressive tune with those mods. Yet you trap 109 mph, which is consistent with the regular small turbo upgrades for WRX owners.

    For reference, the fastest stock turbo WRX 2.0L WRX ever ran something like a 12.70 @ 106 with far more mods (and not on pump gas) and power than you're making.
