Okay, lets say he is the worst driver in the world (hopefully no offense taken, OP). Thats gonna greatly affect your ET, of course, but like you said, his lack of driving skill could also be hurting him by a couple mph. So least say its hurting him by 5mph, he is still only trapping 107-108. His set up should EASILY trap 110+, more like 112-116.

Maybe its the driving, maybe its the car. Its easy to figure out. He can either go back to the track and try again. He may do better, then well have a better idea of his trap. Or he can learning view or log the car, if nothing sticks out there, check boost leak and comp test. Both options are easy to do. Just seems like most people would wanna start checking it now and find out whats going on, then wait a week or two to get back to the track.

Regardless of what the OP's problem is, I wish him luck.
