    It doesnt make sense, your first time..and the mph?, your second pass is a little more on track with a 13.8 pass as far as mph goes. What I am saying is for your to to go 103 mph at a 15 seconds is that it had to be a rocket wonce u got traction..but with just the mod.s your just saying insnt making sense..I could see(your first run) possibly a 14.1 but a 15.1 at that speed?...And almost wasting 3 seconds in 60 ft?.....I dunno

    Mph will generally be more if you are spinning.

    Yeah, but not that much mph. He ran a 2.7 sec. 60'. After that point he only has 1,260ft. to gain alot of mph. I've spun all through 1st, hitting a 2.7 sec. 60' and had a 98mph trap speed. My car, back then, was doing the same 1/4 mile time and had roughly the same trap speed (2.2 sec. 60' 13.7 sec. 1/4 mile @ 104mph). I dunno how he'd make up that much mph at the back part of the track.

    Anyways, maybe the track is off. That would be my guess. Either that or your car has some serious power, that even your better pass didn't patch into the second time.

    Nice runs though. Keep practicing.
