Year and Trim: 2011Taurus SHO
So I was finally convinced to take my 2011 Taurus SHO TO US 131 dragway last night. It was a fast learning experience and my reaction times were getting better each run. First run was against another member from the ecoboost forum who has a 2013 with the performance package, and he won my 13.2554 to his 13.0136. Second run was against an SRT 8 Challenger with at least an intake and he ran a 12.8 with the win to my 13.2300. Third run was against a late 60's Mustang, not sure of mods but nothing super crazy, he got me off the line and pulled a little over a car length but I was able to real him in by the end for the win. He ran a 13.70 to my 13.2607. I didn't let the car cool down much between runs since I really wanted to get home and help put my son to bed. 3 runs in about an hour and a half. Temp was 65* with 51% humidity and a 10mph wind out of the NW, we run due North. The SHO sure is consistent is one thing for sure. Here are the time slips. Both of us with SHO's are running Livernois Motorsports stage 4 tune and I have a drop in K&N panel. Other than that stock with all season tires on both cars. My reaction times started bad at .8 but I got them down to .4 on my third run. It's the first time I have ever raced on a drag strip.

Update

I got a new tune from LMS and added a 3 bar MAP to allow for more boost. I had a best ET last night of 12.7549 @ 107.26 MPH. I'm pretty happy with the way that turned out. Almost half a second gain from last time out.

Thanks guys. I had a blast and I'm sure I will go back again. The strip is only 20 minutes from home and it's only $25 for test and tune nights.
