I am guessin everything is stock correct? And sounds like you have a manual. If everything is stock and you are in manual than the time and wheel hop sound about right.

did you run with traction control off? With practice (and good air) you'll be in the mid 14's with a stock manual.

except you're doing 0-90+ with people in the stands watching your every move. lol you also need to make sure you know how to stage right. a lot of people's first time don't realize how to. And then there's the xmas tree. That can be different depending on the track. no pressure though! haha
