just leave it out its not that much but i used to beat my brothers hatch (before he got his swap of course) with my altima and after he took the **** out i couldnt beat him anymore. I just got my 240 and theres not **** for room for the people sitting in the back so those *****es are comin out.

work on your 60' launch, it's crucial. do you have an auto or stick?
Taking everything from the back (including the spare tire & jack) is estimated around 50-60 pounds, so thats not bad.
Few tips I was told.
Keep your tank below 1/4 tank, preferable 1/8 tank, fill it with higher grade gas!
just before you begin, turn the heat on to full, that way all of the heat from the engine gets sucked in to the 240, making the engine cooler.
make sure your filter is clean, a dirty filter will hurt you.

That is totally almost impossible to read! I had to turn the moniter sideways, lol

Yeah, yoru R/T killed you, otherwise you woulda had high 16's. But yeah, going from stop in a straight line for 16 seconds is no fun.

did you make sure you had proper tire inflation? tune up? clean the headlights from bugs? took a dump before you ran?

those last two would have help shave a few secs. off your time
