1/4 v6 times

I have talked to multiple people about this and we are all curious why there are so many people with half the mods I have (listed in my signature) and they are running under 14's in the 1/4 mile. If this is the case shouldn't I be running around a 13.5? 13.6? With the v8's making around 360hp to the wheels and a 13.0-13.1 and I'm making right around 300 it seems about right.

Trap speeds are better indicator of HP. ET's are more of a function of 60ft traction/shifting/torque.

For example...I've seen 600 hp cars run 12-13's at 130mph due to poor launches, poor shifting habits and poor traction.

What are your trap speeds?
