Todd, you definitely have a ways to go in before the car reach it'* peak capabilities as it is. I was just looking at your trap speed and comparing it to the GTP'*. The GTP'* (which tend to have a higher trap speed at the same et as an SSEi) that have your trap speeds are all in the 13.89-14.1 et range. With the traction and whatever other issues you are having you are probably capable of 13.8'* (or better) as is. I realize this was the first time to the track, so it was more of just getting to learn how the car launches, and learning how shes run'*, so no doubt you learned alot during the day (and your #'* show it).
My personall congrat'* and I'm sure we'll be seeing you in the 13'* this year. Thanks for providing us with a #'* producing car to watch move up the Fastest 3800'* chart (so far looks as though you are probably #2 or #3 short of Big Jeff'* in the SSEi class -Good luck catching him when he'* not broke).

Keep in mind, i'm doing aroun 50 extra HP at the wheel and significant torque upgrades. 14'* sounds attainable. Luckily this is an SE and not an SSE, but i'll still pull the tire, subs, etc.

My goal isn't any specific #'*, i just want powah!

Sad to see the SSEi go down scott! I saw a very disheartening video of it. And you should recruit Kendra, not Todd She seems to be pretty good!

but be aware that a higher trap speed is the result wheelhop/no traction. the gtp'* trap speeds were probably a little lower because of lsd or slicks.
I like to think of it as the slower the 60', the faster you will trap, and vise-versa... wow i didnt really explain that well at all...

Stock was full trim and all 4 of the same tire. Street you could have slicks or drags as your front tires. i think there were other differences but I dont remember.
