12.0 last year on street tires, which was not easy and I really wanted to hit 11's. Lots of low 12's that day with mediocre 60' times as it was a very fine line between losing grip and not enough throttle. In cold temps with no sun to help heat up the track on street tires, its really difficult even with excellent track prep.

Do you use auto at the strip or shift with the paddles?

Road and track had the same time to 60, but a 12.6 in the quarter Quickest stock (magazine) times that I've seen

btw, it is quite amazing to me how fast this car is with just headers, exhaust, let alone dropping drag radials on it....wow!
