    Your 60 foot time is your problem. If you dont have drag radials all you need to do it heat up the stock tires really good, lots of smoke and you will do a 1.7 or 1.8 60 foot time. Also, take off with traction control off and turn it back on right after you take off. that worked the best for me. I did an 11.7 with just a tune and CAI and muffler delete. I was at 470 RWHP when i did this run. http://youtu.be/YSHwBw6WH4w

    Don't feel bad, I also had a embarrasing 13.1@115.59 last fall. Even had the stability control kick in. Track was greasy, unpreped and mist in the air. That's my excuse. 60'was 2.28. Traction off was a scary ride. Will be back for revenge this summer. You guys that do 1.80 in 60' are really good, but must have a good track.

    At the February 2013 CTS-V Shootout at PBIR, my bone stock 2011 A6 sedan on Michelin PS2's ran 11.990 @ 118.40 MPH, 12.009 @ 117.85 MPH, 12.026 @ 117.84 MPH, 12.058 @ 117.00 MPH and 12.150 @ 117.22 MPH. 60' times ranged from 1.866 to 1.926. Density Altitude ranged from 1612' to 2123'. (6,000 miles on car.)

    At the February 2012 CTS-V Shootout at PBIR, my bone stock 2011 A6 sedan on Michelin PS2's ran 12.023 @ 118.02 MPH, 12.024 @ 117.44 MPH, 12.110 @ 118.17 MPH and 12.117 @ 117.04 MPH. 60' times ranged from 1.851 to 1.934. Density Altitude ranged from 1500' to 1917'. (3,000 miles on car.)

    During both outings I used the same driving technique. Back into water box. Turn TC off. Put transmission in Sport and spin tires. Pull out of water box and do a hard moving burnout. Turn TC on. Launch off idle. Squeeze throttle on launch.
