7.2 at 142.3. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0"> Never tracked it, and won't until I get some more performance mods. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/rolleyes.gif" BORDER="0"><p>Our cars really aren't too fast, but I still like 'em. Your time sounds respectable for our cars, if I recall most people heavily modified were getting right around 15s.

Re: (HaZed)

I know man, its frustrating i was talking to couple guys and they said something about the air tonight, everyone was running slow. Definitely with more practice and a cooler night i should be able to break 15

Haven't been to the strip yet, but if a Tundra can pull 14.7 I better hit atleast a 14 even, I would like to see some numbers from an MT but I know my car pulls pretty hard and I'm confident it can be done.

Re: (PasS40ion)

When i get my damn enhanced license and go to canada i will be able to take my car to the track and get some times with my 6 speed. I could take it down to seattle i guess but like to keep my dyno and track consistant to get accurate base times to compare too if that makes sense.<p>What was you 60' times on that 15.5? A tenth off your 60' is about .2 off your ET in case your considering working on your times a bit. Might wanna consider better tires to launch higher RPM's <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>My goal is low 14's fairly stock, mid 13's on stock turbo with planned mods, and 12's on upgraded turbo later on. Eventually may buy another S40 for the Mrs. and then turn mine into a track car for something TOTALLY different. Caged, EMS, slicks, LSD, upgraded clutch, the works <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/eek.gif" BORDER="0"> Big commitment though financially.

Re: (jdsr917)

Manual trans is key, best way to get low 60' times is with a solid launch. Much harder to do with an auto where the closest thing would be trying to power brake it.

Re: (wrdiedrich)

With a LSD and some drag radials id like to get some 1.8 60' times and that should scoot off the line pretty good. I think our downfall is the powerband on our cars. Other than the MPH for days with this M66 trans it needs more pull up top.

I hate our powerband man i feel like the car is really not setup too well .... I want more power all around that would be nice <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: (shadowlord)

Have you talked to these guys personally are you aware if they have data logging and mapping SW or is this just another ECU flash option?
