When stock, my first time to the track was in the middle of summer and the temps were 95 degrees with high 80% humidity. I ran a 13.908.
When stock, my best time was 13.83 @ 98mph or so in 82 degree weather with high 70s/low 80s humidity.
Best 60' when stock was around 2.099.
With no front swaybar, UDP, and new Nitto 555 tires in the back (non-DR), I ran a 13.50 (forget the mph).
With everything in my mod list in my sig except the off-road h-pipe (it's new), I ran a 13.007 @ 106. 60' was around 1.96.

Wow... When is a good launching time? It was my first time ever going to a drag strip. The third yellow light is when I should let go and then floor it? Or do I wait all the way for the green? How does it work?

Right when the last yellow light comes on you floor it. Don't wait for the green or your reaction time will suck.

You react slower than what your brain wants to do, so u will get used to it.

Your reaction time DOES NOT effect you ET unless it is bracket race! Don't worry about your reaction time if you are running for ET. I have 3 sec. reaction time and i ran 12.70. I launched when i was ready!
