Messing around on the street I see about 85 in the quarter with mine...Your 
MPH sounds good, the ET average.

Someone (Brian Guild?) reported a high-high-high 15 second pass with his 
5-speed TC this last summer.

It really takes talent to hook those cars on street tires. Rev too low and 
bog the motor, rev too high and you spin like crazy. 

**I would really love to hear some numbers on the '87-'88 A4LD TC's.**
