So, what do you think the LSS will run at the track? Stock. My weight is 3582lbs and remember the dyno #'* of 209hp and 271ftlbs at the wheels. Thats 262hp and 337ftlbs at the crank. My guess is 14.9, with a decent launch.

I would say that is feasible. High 14'* is very possible. Your weight is just a tad heavier than the GTP'* of the 97-03 gen, and they usually run mid to high 14'* in stock form.

I wouldn't say i'm a speed racer just yet. To me, "speed racer" territory is 13s or less in the quarter.

that chart is so inaccurate.. there are so many other variables that are uncalculated... gear ratios, hp loss through drivetrain, and also torque which has alot of influence on acceleration. dont even rely on it for reference, pay the twenty bucksa and go to the track and get a real number.... now THATS taking the guesswork out.

15.1 @ something like 94.5 with like a 2.3 60'. you may have traction issues thats why my numbers are modest...
