Well I'm back from the strip.
It rained at noon for about an hour and a half. Almost no one showed from the group that said they were going. We had a 95 5.0 Mustang GT lightly modded but tired with 150k on it, a 2001 Mustang Bullitt, a 2007 Mustang GT with a Supertuners tune, a cat back, Wide wheels with 315 tires and a K&N intake and my car with the new drag radials.
There ended up being a bunch of Mopars there plus some other interesting vehicles.
The air wasn't good. We had a DA of 1622. The humidity was high and there was a slight headwind between 6 and 8 mph.
There were 2 Orange SRT8 Challengers there. They had K&N intakes, one had a Magnaflow catback and the other had flowmaster mufflers, they both had drag radials. One was running 13.5 and the other was running 13.6 both at 105. There was a stock 300C SRT8 with drag radials running 13.6-13.7. A Viper ran a very traction limited 12.7 at 113 mph. A bunch of RT and 5.7 hemi cars ran mid to low 13's ( oops, that should be mid to low 14's) and had various mods. One that was stock was running 14.9-15.0.
The Bullitt ran a 14.6. He said on a good day he can slip into the 13's and usually runs 14.0-14.2. The 5.0 95 Mustang was able to get a 14.6 and ran a 15.2 at 94 when I ran him. The 07 Mustang, my main competition did very good. He ran a 13.69 and when I ran him he ran a 13.8 at 100.81.
I have a lid (CAI), a Magnaflow catback and a Diablosport tune. I just recently did the free ram air mod and added drag radials to it.

Take a look at my reaction times and how consistant the car was. Anyone care to bracket race me????
My guess is the track was .3-.4 slow. Those SRT8 cars modded should run a 13.1 or 13.2. That would put me a 13.0-12.9.
The track prep was lousy so I couldn't take advantage of my Nitto DR's.
All in all it was a fun evening and I'm real happy with the consistancy of the driver and the set-up on the car. To be able to beat the SRT8 cars by 2 full tenths is a huge plus.
A couple more cars, a claimed to be stock EVO MR ran a 13.3 at 102. A 99 FRC Vette with DR's a cat-back and a Vararam intake ran 13.1 at 109. An 01 Z06 with a Vararam and Borla Stingers ran 12.7 at 111. An 04 Mustang GT with headers, intake, tune, 4.10 gears and DR's was running high 13's at 102.
