.2 faster on the launch will result in about .4 in the 1/4 mile. your car should be much faster though. i ran 14.3 @ 91 mph bone stock 2000 miles on the car.

For being your first time running that is not bad. Work on launching, WRX's make all their times in the first 1/8 mile. Also where were you shifting at. I ran a 13.6 with a turboback and MBC set at 15.0.

I would have to blame those times on the driver.

Stealth-wrx, on both my WRX and STi I found its much closer to .1 to .1 on the 60ft to 1/4 mile et. But still dropping the 60ft .2 would drop the ET by .2 which is still a hell of alot.

Who do you blame the mph on? He runs 97mph dead on almost every pass.

3rd gears goes up to about 97 I think. So you should be able to hold it in 3rd the whole time.

C'mon V6, a stock WRX can pull better times than that. If he's running that with a stage 5, consistently, he's got to be doing something wrong.

I ran 12.8 @ 107 with stage 4 vf-34 + fmic. I figured the same as you, I'd use launch control at the track and shave off a few .10'ths. All I ended up shaving off was my 2nd gear, on my first run. Be CAREFUL using launch control at the track with a stock tranny. On the street is one thing, but you get sticky track conditions and you're guaranteed to be getting a flatbed home.

I blame the mph on his tuner. He's running roughly 10 mph slower than he should be.

Here's my ticket, no scanner so I'll type it.

R/T .748
60' 1.823
330 5.372
1/8 8.213
MPH 85.93

1/4 12.857
MPH 107.23

If you have a stock tranny I highly suggest leaving the launch control on the street where the wheels spin.
