i got stage2 motor mount and dogbone insert. ordered a stage2 trans mount last nite. i think the guy is on to something launching in d. sport mode launch control sucks for drag racing with street tires anyway.

We can all thank Mk72015 for sharing his steps/approach on his 12 sec runs w/ A/S rubber (back when he had the GTI). Made a lot sense. Big thanks for sharing!

Last fall when i was out on Pilost Super Sports (with little to no game plan), my 60' times were 2.3-2.4 and change (same track with similar attendance #s, + warmer temps)

This time around (on stock a/s + a lot cooler temps) after few successful back to back runs in D mode, i tried using the same R foot technique in S and manual mode and i had no chance. D mode is very predictable & controllable.

OP, thanks for the motivation

The best I could do on the stock Bridgestones was 13.80's at 108. My car is a manual. I have not gone into VCDS to turn off traction control to get all the water off my tires and could not go around the water. Apr stage 1, 2.4 60 ft, just for fun, not a drag car...

Np. Good luck and let us know how it goes. This was my normal street PSI setup that i run (33F 29R). I didn't want to mess around w tires on that day. If i had my PSSs i may have tried to squeeze every little bit by dropping them down to 20, if not lower. Maybe bumping up the rears too.
