I beat a 2003 Cobra Terminator and a 2012 SRT Supercharged Charger.
I really wasent expecting to run in 12s at all.
I launched at 1,500 rpm spun alittle along with a tad bit wheel hop

Those are really consistent times, congratulations!

So this does prove Kona Blue is the fastest color doesn't it? ;)

You got it ;D!!!
 
For a basically a stock Boss? I think it's awesome, congrats.

I've been messing around launching between 2300 and 3000 rpm's.

You launch at 1500? Makes sense with stock tires, etc. Thanks for info.

ps. and I need a lot of practice!!

7.99 in the 1/8 is really good also; that would beat a lot cars around here (DFW)

Thanks, I don't use launch control I try to keep rpms between 1500-1700, I don't powershift either. Destroying the Tranny is not worth it to me.
Car would be dealership stock if I could but I had no choice to add the MGW and UCA both of these are items I installed to prevent any Tranny damage and wheelhouse from causing any damage. Neither will add power obviously.
I think the low Mph is because of a few reasons, weather, the stock tune, and because when I hit second I'm spinning literally a half car length.

No power shifting? I've also added the MGW and getting ready to Hotchkiss Springs, LCA and Whiteline Relocation brackets.

You know whats' funny, I've thought the car pulls great on lower rpm launch and quick shifting, not power shifting; but when I get to the strip, it's like I freak out to the "drag racing mode" (high launch rpm's, power shifting, etc.)

I appreciate your input......
