My reflexes and shifts certainly aren't as good as they once were, but a 14.999 would be about the best I could hope for and I'm sure I won't be able to match the autos.
I have never taken a car to the strip before, but I was thinking about givin' it a try. I also have a manual. When you launch are you holding the clutch at the point of engagement, and then dropping it? What are your shift points (rpm)? It seems like the power peaks in this car around 5500.
