    I'm still waiting.
    No, what I am saying is this: 2.0 60fts should have them sub 13.5s. Heat and humidity are killers and maybe the 10 year newer emissions related engine management along with the speed density system in the 6.1 (iirc) is affected more by heat and humidity.

    Your example of 6 cars by 80mph doesn't prove anything except an unknowledgable or incompetent driver.

    Hard to comment on your examples without knowing the 60fts and as we discussed before, if the trap speeds are low at your track, going from a roll will remove that problem.

I drove 1 hour to Richmond did 16 hot laps with 13 wins, with a best of 13.1964@107.30, 3 loses which consisted of 1 red light, 1 total loss of traction, and 1 11 sec Honda dragster. the GTOs were averaging 14.3s as were the LT1 f-bodies and the LS1 guys that I was hanging around with were too modded to have a good comparison and they were averaging 12.8s. cool guys they were trying to coach me as I had never done this before. the mach I i ran got 14.5603@102.55 to my 13.4@105. temp was 82.9*, humidity was 58%, 75ft elevation, DA 1841, and the track sucked if that gives you enough info to decipher and critique my runs. corrected numbers were 12.92@109.647. I’ll have all the slips as soon as I figure out how to convert them to digits.

    my best run looked like this

    RT .2003 best was .0702
    60FT 2.0586
    330FT 5.6853
    1/8ET 8.5845
    1/8 MPH 85.31
    1/4ET 13.1964
    MPH 107.30
    Not bad... last time at the track (2 weekends ago) there was a stone stock Challenger SRT8 (auto).. I talked to the kid and he had the car a couple weeks and had never been to a drag strip. His first few passes were in the high 13s with 105~106mph traps... by the end of the day he ran a best of 13.3 @ 107mph on a 2.0 60ft and had several other runs in the 13.3~13.4 range. DA for 967ft during the timeframe he ran his 13.3.

    Honestly when you consider my time was done at a 647ft Elevation track with slightly negative DA you would have destroyed me on the same track, same day. Considering fergyflyer posted this...

    My Z28 ran 13.6-13.7 stock. It's an 02', A4 with 2.73 gears.

    I've added a Diablo Predator, Magnaflow catback, lid, FRAM, and Nitto DR's. I've got a best of 12.72 at 109, but typically run 13.0-13.1.
    We are going mod for mod here against SRT8s and Fergy is giving them a Tune, catback, intake, and drag radials? Seriously? I wouldn't even take on that challenge and I consider my car to be a rather strong contender against them in stock form.

    Wow.

    You guys completely destroyed this thread with this argument. Quite frankly I'm surprised it hasn't been closed yet.
