I'll try it again and see how I do, but I do expect to now get the 1/4 down to 13.8 or 13.9 that sounds like the ideal 1/4 mile. Also getting the car modded to Stage 1 to increase HP to 320HP and Torque to 33O this week. That should cut it down to the high mid-13s for sure. Thanks for all the suggestions. Will keep you all posted on my Q-mile times.
Also, do you think getting aftermarket rims with new tires w/o run flats will help? I assume they're very heavy.
Practice brake boosting your car off the line and find the perfect rpm to launch your car at, it makes a world of a difference especially on an xi. Tires and wheels always help too.
