Sure! theres many other cars you can get that are are built to go fast, but when your 16 year old Volvo with 240,000 miles brutally smokes a brand new Honda Civic Si weighing in at a noticably less curb weight, it sure feels good.<p>Finaly got a good run at Bandimere speed way here in Colorado, 15.5, all stock except R spoiler/bumper and 18 pegs. First time i ran it i got a 17.8 with a blown intercooler hose, basically running less than 5 pounds of boost there.<p>Anyone else here have any good drag runs??<p><A HREF="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LHDDuU1J7Rw" TARGET="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LHDDuU1J7Rw</A>

Re: (fcpgroton)

I got [email protected] with the 13G with basically no mods. <p>I now have a 16T, 3" DP, M56H, R clutch and a whole bunch more stuff and my iPhone says [email protected] Surprisingly, my iPhone was really close when I brought it to the track with my buddies WRX, so who knows. <p>To the OP, love that colour! Take off the pegs, you'll take off half a second from your 60ft time <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/tongue.gif" BORDER="0">

Just set it on your dash, press start, and it doesn't start until your car moves. <p>It's scarily accurate (except for the MPH, always a little high so I take 2-3mp/h off). But kind of useless since it's hard to find a road that's open enough, and one that's clean enough to get enough traction for a decent launch.
