I am surprised people aren't running max tire pressures in the rear of the fwd cars to reduce rolling resistance. If I can run 51psi on my fronts for a 60 second autocross run, one can surely run at least that much tire pressure in a 14-15 second 1/4 mile. Any reason why not?

heres what to do....my best 60 foot time was a 2.333.........stage till the bottom yellows come on....hold the break, hodl the gas till about 2000 rpm or so....light turns green let it go
I've actually got one better. I ran several times today and my 2 best times on a stock '03 1.8t Tiptronic with all season tires on it were R/T of .084 and .095. I found that if you use left foot braking and floor the pedal and time your release to when the last yellow starts to light you will have good results. 60 % of my reaction times were in the .3's so I may be a little late on the release.

My best quarter times were only 16.999 and 16.850 at 82.69 mph and 82.89.

Can't wait to see how much it improves when I chip her.

As far as the Passats, i read this thread and thru the pages, and i have not seen much 1/4 times from stock :b5:'s. I am going to run mine soon. I want to see the difference from stock to upgraded, since i will be starting the engine mods soon, to be done before xmas (i think) and ready to run for next year season. The difference should be nice.
If you're still interested in stock numbers I have 11 slips or so from my runs today. It might give you an average baseline

@Bglswrth454: If you are flooring the gas before launch I bet the DBW is cutting the throttle off. Try feeding in JUST enough pedal to get the boost up.

2.2 is an excellent 60' for a mostly stock Passat running radials.

Thanks for the suggestion. Yesterday was actually my first time lining up in front of a Christmas Tree. The adrenaline was doing more driving than my brain or reflexes. Next time out I will try and take advantage of your suggestion.

I tried, but the cold weather didn't help my summer tires, I wasn't getting any traction.

I wanted to break 14's before I swapped the turbo, but I got close.
