Very cool when folks take these cars out to the track.  

Your 60ft time was about 2.00 to 2.05 sec.

Every day at the track is a good day. I concur with russ based on your et to mph. With practice and traction that 12.86 will drop to a 12.30 at that mph.

Nicely done!  Add me to the list of members who love to see these cars hit the dragstrip.. and even better when people take the time to share the experience with us here. I love taking my cars to the dragstrip, and we make it a family hobby, with my sons.

Is it me, or is it a little sad that a guy takes his muscle car - a Dodge Charger - to the track and only 5 people on the entire Dodge Charger forum respond.

I'm 100% sure there are others here who enjoy hearing about it and are quiet about it. I probably would have done just that....But I will say that my response was because of the positive responses I had when I went and because I genuinely enjoyed reading it. 

I really appreciate the original post and look forward to seeing more in the future.   2thumbs

I agree, it is a little sad when something like the 5 word game thread even exists in a car forum (sorry, Im not much of a follower of the off topic section- for those who are, just forgive me and know its just one mans opinion).
Good for you hemio!  It is so much fun to use these cars as intended and to support your local strip.  I hope you continue to do it.

Found a couple of time slips.  You may, or may not know that generally speaking if the et and mph are similar, all of the other data for the run will be similar as well.  Here are a few:

12.853 @ 107.90, 1.995 sixty ft.
12.900 @ 108.36, 2.065 sixty ft.
12.910 @ 107.84, 2.012 sixty ft.
