yea that's not bad for a first timer, my first couple times i couldn't get lower than 15, some practice got me a 14.3 with exhaust. practice launching, ## 60ft could use some work. wait for a cold day too, should knock off and extra .1 or.2 if u go when it's cold.

rollin on 17's now and they're dirty

yeah as mentioned above, practice launching to bring down ## sixty foot times, 2.3 isnt the greatest, you should be at 2.0 or lower, you'll get it though....and yeah 95 degrees sucks for forced induction

14's is average for a first timer but keep in mind that a stock 06-07 WRX will hit 13.8-13.7 with a really good driver. So with stage I and exhuast it should be a tick faster than that. With your stage I you should be aiming for high 13's.

i have a stage 2 and i run a 8.40 in the 1/8 and a 1.71 60ft time so you should be around the same 60 ft times and you should be in the low low 13's

If it is relatively humid with 95 degree temperture, I doubt a stage two WRX will hit 13.6 or better.

Living in Texas, I had a 1.899 second 60' time; and a 14 second 1/4 mile. The STG2 STi's running that day were only getting 13.5's... primarily due to the outside temps and humidity. Ok... their 60' times were not the greatest either.

Yes, to combat heat... I used to bring two bags of liquor store ice with me in my cooler in the back seat :P I'd drive to the track, park on the grass, then put one bag on the intake manifold, and the other on top of the intercooler. I'd do this with the bag still unopened until the ice cooled everything down to ice cold, ha.... then I'd put the ice back in the cooler to prevent it from further melting. Anyways it made a HUGE difference in my 60ft times. Right out of the box I got a 14.99 at 89 mph with a 2.0 - 2.4 60ft time. After that consistent 15.5's and even a 16! Ewww for subies... After the new clutch, flywheel, exhaust (tbe and up-pipe), ic hoses, and the ice I was able to pull off a 14.18 @95 mph 1.9 60ft time, with a 14.3 at 93 right after that Now that my car is actually tuned (XPT STAGE II 93oct map, 16.3 psi mmmmmm) I can tell the car hauls faster. I haven't taken it to the track yet, but like the guys were saying before I should get a 13 something at least, especially if I pulled off the 14.18 without it. I guess I should bring more ice with me Hopefully I get a 13.6 at 100mph or better with a 1.8 or 1.7 60 ft time!

I would rather get a 14.2, than bust my transmission. These CARS are not meant to drag race. It may not happen now, but keep it up and someday you will start a post saying
"why do I hear grinding when I shift" or "why did my trans break". I am not trying to be a d!ck, but just letting you know what will happen, eventually
