1/4 mile times? slow mph?

Hey, first let me say hello. I recently made my first trip out to my local drag strip for some baseline runs. Now I think my best of 12.99 is decent for a stock auto. My concern is that my mph trap speed seems low compared to most other cars I've seen run. Any idea what would cause that? My fastest mph was a 109 and that was on my worst run with lots of tire spin.

My 12.99 run was @ 108, most people ive seen run 111-115 stock . What could be causing this?

When my auto was stock I would trap 108-110. Only went once while it was stock and it was about 95 degrees outside.

The weather was amazing, low humidity cool air temp, wondering if maybe tc was the issue. my best 60' was a 2.11 so I think I should have run faster

Sounds like your right where you should be for speed. Get bit by the bug... Time to start modding!

2.1 is mediocre. an "acceptable" 60 on street tires would be about a 2.0.

Can the auto be manually shifted?
