I'm not waffling

No waffles for me. Just one Mustang GT, please, and make it snappy.

(I fear that I will have one by year's end.)

I've been building a spread sheet with every 1/4 mile time I've seen. Seem like a pattern is developing.

2 Autos ran: 13.6@99.9 and 13.61@99.9
5 manuals ran: 13.8@102, 13.81@102.11, 13.9@101.4, 13.94@101.41, 14.2@102.

Seems like autos are quicker in 1/4 mile but have slower trap speeds, while manual run slower with higher speeds (101-102mph)

What does your "co-driver" think of this? And by that I don't mean your wife.

Stripes?

I insist you make yours look exactly like this one (so that I may live vicariously through you):

I sent notification earlier this evening. I expect a response early tomorrow morning. I expect him to take it in stride considering everything else that I've thrown at him lately.
