Stock runs at the strip with 2014 Mustang GT

Hit the strip in my new 14 coyote premium GT (3.73 rear from factory), best run of the night was 60'-2.024, 1/8-8.549, 1/4- 13.121, trap-109.03 mph. No track prep, exterior temp was aorund 80 degrees, on my third straight pass. i can't understand with that 60' and 1/8th how I wasn't in the 12s. I was launching at 2k rpms, should I try launching lower/higher? I want to run in the 12s stock before I start modding. I really want to hit 12s next friday when I go. So besides me shifting better I plan on showing up with a half tank of gas instead of full( lose around 50 lbs). I was going to then remove the spare tire and maybe drop the tire pressure on the rears (does this still count as stock tho if I'm dicking around like that?!) Thanks for the help. I just used the DA calculator, it said it was 81 degrees outside, bp was 29.99 inches HG and 38% humidity and said my adjusted time is a 12.76, I can't believe this would be right?

With a 60' of around 2 you are losing a lot of traction off the start. However a 2 second 60' is about average for a street car. It may be in your favor to actually INCREASE the weight in the trunk just to get off the line quicker. You are also suffering from wheel hop more than likely so without a new set of upper and lower control arms or tires you may still have trouble off the line. As for launching you may wanna try 1500 rpms or even maybe slightly less until you get mods. This will keep you off the power band right off the line which should grant you more traction. Lets us know how the results go!

Don't launch...slip into the clutch. Heat your tires up. Yes they are street tires but they still need to be hot. Don't just spin them a few times, make sure there is smoke. I managed a 1.9 60ft in my car and yours is light years ahead of ought to be in the 1.8 range for a 60ft and that will definitely put you into the 12s.

Don't worry about weight...that's not holding you back. Your 60fts and probably shifting. It takes practice to know to how to launch your car properly as every car is different. Practice practice practice

Good luck and let us know how Friday goes.
