Headed out to the track for the first time in my IS-F. I don't know if I could love this car more!! For being stock it definitely held it's own. My first run was the fastest.

Here's the details:

2008 IS-F 18,000 miles - San Antonio, Texas
82 degrees
87% humidity :(

Best run of the night:
13.1849 @ 109.04

The remainder of the runs where 13.2's with one being a 13.3 (car in D)

On my 13.18 run I ran against a buddies c5z06 w/ intake, short shifter, and lightweight flywheel and although he edged me out on the time (13.1805 @ 108.88) my quick reaction time got me the White slip (winning one).

I also ran against a brand new SS camaro. His best run was around the 13.5 mark. Car was a manual and was his first time at the track.

Finally an 04 cobra (with x-pipe, intake, drag radials) who best'ed a 13.6. Car was a manual and was also his first time at the track.

Looks like I'll be ordering my exhaust and possibly a set of drag radial's sooner than expected to try my shot at 12's (on a less humid night of course)

GJ, though it seems a little off pace from what other's have posted. what were you 60' times like?


EDIT: didn't realize the temp and humidity! that's a great time! From my experience this motor really falls on it's face in the upper revs in high humidity. You'll be well into the 12's with cooler conditions :)

2.1's

I'm fairly confident that with my weather conditions, my time's pretty normal from what I've researched. I could be wrong though but I think most cars that run faster bone stock either are at sea level or running at cooler temps.

Ha. Thought about a 125 like slay's car. But decided to go the more traditional bolt-on route... Won't make as much but it'll always be there.

I too took my '08 isf to the track and was very disappointed. My best time was a 13.6 @105. The track temp. was 92 degrees and 100% humidity @ approximately 1200 ft. above sea level. I was really hoping for a low 13 but the heat was just too great. Oh well, I guess it's not all that bad. I did see a procharged c6 z06 running 12.50's @12x so I'll wait until the temperature drops significantly before I return. btw...good looking run against the z06.
