PostSubject: First time dragging   Sat Nov 12, 2011 7:29 pm

13.05 @102, which is a personal best for me as well, since this is my first time running.

Definitely have 12's in it. I made it home on the gas in the tank
(about 5+ gallons remaining when I left). Plus I'm currently at 220,
I'll see if I can't go 200 by next spring. 30 pounds of fuel and 20 lbs
of me has me running 12.80s I'd think.

I could shave weight on brakes, and empty my completely full windshield
washer fluid. I could also shave some weight and get rid of the 24 lb
stock chrome rims.

That's about it for weight unless I start replacing body panels.

Wouldn't hurt to replace the factory air filter with a K&N and I intend to tune for half E/half 93 next year too.

All in all very happy.

Low 16s stock on yours. Might see 15s if you've shaved 150lbs.

That's a pretty good time! I managed a 16.07 with my Crown Vic with screwed up shift points and 120+ degree track temp. Need to get the tune set up properly and get it back out there.

I think a Crown Vic will run bottom 15s.

A stock retail Crown Victoria/Grand Marquis will be in the high 16s - low 17s. A police package car like mine should be in the mid to low 16s stock. I was putting down a 60 foot (2.3 seconds) and 1/8 mile (10.3) time that should have come out to a ~mid 15 pass. But with my shift points being off and the heat, it absolutley killed my top end.

I think Kaleb said people were running 2 tenths off that day, so that alone would have put it in the 15.80s.

Yup, everyone was 2 tenths off that day. I finally got down into the 14's, been pretty consistent 14.80s. Was running 15 flat that day. The Palindrome was running 10.20s, usually ran 10 flat. Getting it tuned up to start making some 9 second passes since this season is over. Keeps sputtering on top end, running out of fuel lol
