    Its a 5,000+ lb predominately front wheel drive crossover. Its natural and preferred state is standing still. :)

    LOL. It is all in the damn tune. I did have traction control and trailer sway control turned off. There is no way that the throttlebody is going WOT as fast as my foot. It could be turbo lag, but I don't feel that kind of lag when rolling and then go WOT. I think a tune alone will shave 4 tenths off just in the 60ft! The tuned 3.5 Eco trucks are running 1.6 60 fts spinning all 4 wheels! Bigger and heavier than the Ex. Yes, I know they have bigger turbos and fuel system and a longitudinally mounted motor, but still. Those are insane 60 fts for that truck. There is 0 turbo lag there. I'll ask my buddy at the track today what his 60ft was stock. I know it ran 14.1 so it had to be decent. 2015 F150 4wd 6.5ft bed extended cab, not crew. He has now run 12.49 with just a tune on 91 octane!

    I knew about this message. I wanted a Fresh new one for my 16 with my title. I will just make a new one titled 16 Sport 1/4 mile Run after I get the results.

    Try to only use ONE foot. When I was "experimenting" and tried the two foot (with or w/o power braking) I got similar poor results. Like 6.8 vs 5.5 0-60 times. Ford service manager told me the slightest push of the brake pedal and the computer would shut down throttle.

    Using any of the terrain mangement settings will automatically disable traction control.

    Hopefully I get a few runs. I'll try normal mode with a power brake, sand mode, and idle launch. I'll experiment a little on the way out there.

    It did pretty well, but I was getting horrible lights. On the street, sand mode felt slower and the more I power-braked it the more the computer would pull out power and cause it to take off slow, but you have to load it a little to preload the suspension and drivetrain. I only tried D and S and kept it in normal mode for the terrain management and tried around a 2k launch.

    Look at my new message titled My 2016 Sport 1/4 Mile Runs for the times.

    I have to look for my slip to find out the exact times. Conditions were not in favor of the Ex that day. It was a 100* F plus by the time I got my first run in.
    Launched in sand mode at about 2200 rpm then switched to normal mode after shifting to 2nd.
    Has a K&n filter also vent to atmosphere and removed the spear tire :D

    JMS Chip any good?
    Would be nice to crack 13's just looking for something mild.

    What fuel were you running? 100 degrees is HOT. The intercoolers are not efficient on these. A buddy's 12 second F150's IAT's were 70 degrees cooler than mine on the same run! He had a SUPER aggressive tune running max boost and it was still way cooler. They don't like ovef 1800 rpm on the launch, especially stock. The computer wigs out. I think 2k is goid tuned. I need to check last week's datalogs and see what rpm I launched st for my best 60fts. Skip sand mode. It just makes throttle tip-in more sensitive. It might give it more rear bias at part throttle. "Sport" mode didn't help either. Pick a cooler day, turn off traction control and trailer sway control, and launch under 2k. Try not to stall it very long either.

    I always run 91 octane. Definitely will be returning on a way cooler day. I'll keep all the tips in mind. Thanks
    I thought the only way to turn off traction control was to turn the dial to one of the offroad modes? ex: sand mode

    13 button click on the steering wheel. Pain in the ass.
