I need to get my *** out to the track and try it myself. I've done it before in different cars that might be a little more suited for the launch... but on much skinnier, less-grippy tires.
Maybe... I've actually seen a 1.7sec 60' using 17" Nitto drag radials on a 11 second street driven Mustang but I felt that was about as good as I could do on those. That was at Pomona on a good track and those were ALOT better suited to dragstrip use than these hard/low profile 19" Bridgestones. Good luck and report back.

Yeah, those Nitto DRs were pretty good. I managed a 1.93 on the stock Goodyears (245s on a 17" rim) on my '03 Mustang GT. At the time it only had a 4.10 gear... everything else was stock... 5MT. Was able to click off a 1.95 and 1.99 that day as well.

I think a well-prepped track should allow for something in that range with this car... but the well prepped track part is probably key.

At my local 1/8th I could hit 2.0 at best with the Mustang... but Virginia Motorsports Park was almost a tenth quicker with the same conditions.

Oh it can definately put up a stock 1.9 60" Out of about my first 20-25 runs while I was still stock I saw 2-3 1.9 60" times. Since upgrading to just the Stillen Intake I've seen a few more and consistantly hitting 2.0 flats.

Oh and Im still running at 36 psi in my tires so if I dropped it down to just under 30 I could prolly do even better.
