    Your reaction time has NOTHING to do with the final ET.
    Unless you are bracket racing.


    That said....the trap speed of 114MPH is nice. Tells you there is plenty more in the car.
    Just needs to hook up.
    I assume you are running on 'warmed up' street tires??

    My best short time (60 foot) on a street tire was a 2.1xx. Damn M6 takes a LOT of getting used to.
    It appears a set of drag radials would do you a BUNCH of good!!!!


    Are you going through the water/burnout box?? If so, stop. Street tires don't like heat. DR's and slicks do, but a normal street tire doesn't.
    Actually, a warmed up street tire will be slicker if you warm it up. Just chirp them outside of the burnout box and figure out how well they hold with a little clutch slip.




    EDIT:Son of a bitch....I missed that is an A4.
    Sounds like it needs a stall!!!

    looks like you were spinning. get your 60ft to the 1.8 range and you'll be in the 12s easy. again, reaction time has nothing to do with your ET.
