I was just wondering how many of you have takin your Saab down 1/4 mile strip and what your times were. heres my best for last friday:

60ft - 2.36
1/8 mile - 8.88
1/4 mile - 15.24 at 92.07 mph

I improved from a 15.58 at 92.4mph last month.

My Viggen has run a best time at LACR of [email protected] mph.

The car was not running full boost that day because of the high temps. (above 90 degrees) But fortunately for me, neither were the Evo 8's at the track as you can clearly see in this run:

Apparently sitting in the heat turned the Evo into a regular Lancer. hehehe

Shame that track has so little for traction. At the end of the day there was so much slick rubber on the track that I was having traction issues in 3rd gear.
You can see by the mph at the end of the track that the car is putting down some serious power despite the high temps. Just too much for those P6000's I'm afraid. If you want a best time according to the g-tech my fastest would be a [email protected] mph. And for those skeptics of the g-tech, perhaps the hp isn't measured accurately, but on the 15.38 run the g-tech showed 15.4. It was within a tenth on all other runs as well. Could be more accurate at measuring 1/4 mile than hp though.

Anyway, 15.24 is faaast if that car is stock! Good job.
