as am I. I was happy as hell with my times.

of my 4 runs, my best was a [email protected] with just a short ram intake and a catback exhaust on an ATX.

were the track conditions affecting things that much??

2 years ago, I was running a 16.3 with virtually no mods (exhaust/intake) + bodykit, audio system, spare tire, etc...

theres no way that Kenny and his much more performance minded cougar only runs 0.300 seconds faster than me. :confused:

I always give it full throttle off the line. I was running 17.2 all day, with only a Short Ram Intake, SVT TB, Custom Catback Exhaust, and a bunch of crap in my trunk :rofl:

I ran 16.15 in my ATX on street tires with svt uim/lim/tb, msds headers, cc cai, aps underdrive pulley, trudendz duals, adc chip, no back seats, no spair tire. I actually ran faster with the street tires than the slicks. dont know if I had enough air out of the slicks. they had 20psi

Last year without the headers and chip, tires that were 1' too tall and a CEL I ran 16.73.

Launched at 2k and Full throttle all the way down at 85.5mph

My best run was a 15.8 with my wife in the Car! :shrug:
I could of made Martinis in my car with the amount of wheel hop I had!

Oh yeah I have a MTX, Sorry!

I had very little to no wheel hop most of my runs (thanks to my GC/Koni & especially my Solid Metal front motor mount)...

I was able to do 5k clutch drops with the race tires to do burn outs in order to warmup and clean the rocks off.


Hotcat, did you do any body work or perhaps add any audio systems since your prior time (last year?) its likely any added weight would have slowed you down!

Yeah, a full fiberglass front end...LOL. I think when I ran it a long time ago I had the system in but, at Fest I had no system. Other then the bodykit I don't see why it would be so slow.

Where can I go to weigh my car, I would like to compare that with a stock coug?


MetallicaCougs, What kind of mods you got done?
