Turbo IS's at the track

as a follow up to last week at island raceway, a few of us went to run for the last time this season. i got two 12 sec runs in; my best was a 12.725 at 116.45mph, running 14psi boost. my 60' was 2.197, which is much better than last week. i'm really happy, as my goal was to be in the 12's with a completely daily-drivable street set up.

here is some basic info on my set up: SRT Stage 2.5, 396rwhp, valvebody upgrade, stock torque converter, manual torsen LSD swap, full interior (including spare and subwoofer), Toyo T1-S 255/35/18.

i have a few more plans for the car over the winter, but most are geared toward road racing. but i had a lot of fun, and i'm looking forward to running again in the spring. here are a few pics:

yeah, i know my 60's were consistently getting better with each run, but i have a while to go. hopefully, they'll be better next season with a new tire set up and more practice.
