I've attached my timeslip from Friday at Island. Enjoy!

Many thanks.  It is making some power on the top end trapping at almost 107.  Care to share any launch technique details?  And are you on summer or all season tires?

Yes, completely stock. It was a demo with 4300 miles.

It's 19 inch all seasons. Michelin. I disabled TC, turned off AC, set to Sport and found that launching in the 2000-2500 range worked best. I didn't try from idle since I thought building up the boost was important. Had some front wheel hop on a couple of runs, but that didn't seem to affect the times.

 

AWD too

Congratulations.  You got a very strong MKZ.

Thanks. Launch rpm definitely helped versus off idle. I have the all seasons too and a tune on top of it. I was hoping to get to the track this fall, but timing didn’t work out. Can’t wait to go in the spring. These great 1/4 mile postings always get me excited.

I'm thinking of the Livermois tune. Seems to be the only viable upgrade at this time.

It is a very noticeable difference.
