Yes I was stating that the 60' timer was incorrect. I can 99.99% promise you that the 60' time is incorrect. Your others look fine.

You posted in a previous thread, I found it amusing. Wash U.

Ohh the wall was quite far away than it looks in the video. I wouldn't hit it unless I swayed a lot more. I do some launches here and there and I don't usually sway this much but I'm thinking if the tire gunk at the start made it to lose traction. Next time I will try launching at a lower rpm.

Oh you went through the water box? I should have told you to drive around it. I did. You don't want that on street tires.

Your friend with the Genesis that was right behind me knew to pass it because he followed me, haha. I wonder what your other Mustang friend did. I should have told all of you guys, I knew about that from reading threads on here. Rapinator was the one who said it, long time ago.

The other friend went through it too. I saw him going through it.

Yep. Water box is only for drag slicks to clean the surface off.

Guarantee you your time would have been alot better with everything on.

I can tell you from experience, disabling the advancetrac / stability control completely is not a good idea if you are not in a controlled/isolated environment or your last name is not Gitten. I did a few stints and got cocky. One night on my way home with my wife following I thought I'd put on a display.... Two lane back road after midnight. Dropped the clutch and commenced to go sideways and steer into it, then shifted into 2nd and the P Zero's hooked up. It shot me across the road, I was able to barely get control before taking out a mailbox and possibly a parked car. Unfortunately, I rode the curb and fubared my rear wheel. That's $271 down the ****ter. I'm glad it happened though, it may have cost thousands down the road.

The track and a normal street are two different things. The track is typically prepped, meaning a stickier surface.

The P ZEROS are also notoriously sketchy tires.

Ohh well sorry about that earlier post. Accidentally hit reply button

Anyways I am the "other mustang" guy in the photo. I did go through the water box.

Background on my car 2011 v6 with 3.31 gears with manual gear box. No tunes and no mods yet.

During my turn the stupid timer didn't start. Apparently i blew something on my start so no idea about my actual times. I launched at about 4k rpm. But since i forgot to switch off my traction control my rpm dropped down to about 2.5k. It felt really pathetic. Based on the video i took i am guessing I was somewhere close to sakibs final quarter mile time. From what i remember i was between 95 and 100 when i passed the quarter mile. I got a decent wheelspin at start but traction control ruined it. Not able
To post the video of my phone. Will add it from my computer later.
