I took my 500T to the strip. Needless to say I am very happy with the results!
The car is young with 2500km. Mods are muffler delete and st coilovers.
The track is about 600ft above sea level. It was a test and tune night, so the prep wasn't the greatest.
The weather was cool at about 15c. Traction was an issue with the stock tires at 34psi.
My best time was 15.97@86.4mph with a crummy 2.48 60ft

According to my calculations.. with a 2.3 60ft (should be doable on street tires) I could pull off a 15.6.
It was my first time at the track with this car but not my first time at the track.
I did 6 runs mostly in the 16.3's when I realized I didn't have the sport button on!
The last run with the sport button was the 15.9. I'll be going back and improving my times as much as possible before I begin with the engine mods.

"Muffler delete"?

Good question since the T doesn't come with a muffler to be deleted. :confused:

Uhh ya the muffler is definitely there on the Sport Turbo - I think Tweak had a brain fart

'T' Not 'Abarth'. I almost did the same thing...
Got to say not bad for a 130 horse machine!
So maybe an Abarth with a more efficient turbo and EM support could dip into the low 14s.
I'd be absolutely thrilled to claim a 13.99 in one of these!

Guess I am just stuck on the Abarth kool aid! SO no res on the T at least I hope...as close as it sounds (to a degree) I had thought the T was without a muffler according to the sound I guess.
