After several attempts since owning the GT, I have finally broken well into the 14s, where the car should be. Went out to test & tune this evening, got 2 passes in...first one was 14.352 @ 100.11 mph, second was 14.310 @ 99.30 mph. My 60' times still lack though...up around 2.3.

Hit every gear nicely, no missed shifts (that was the problem every other time...have trouble going into 2nd or 3rd). My previous best time was 15.058 @ 97.66 mph.

Now...just gotta work on the 60-foots.

Cool, Frank! That's DAMN respectable for a stock GT.

Great new times Frank.
With some better traction you'll be real close to the 13's.
