Times are disapointing yet again (the first set recorded anyway). But to say they cheated by going to Ford engineers to get advice on launches is total BS. How many years has the Gen3 been released? About 4 years. So the mags have had a hell of a lot of practice launching Gen3 powered cars (and when they were first released the mags said they were a bitch to launch). So what's so wrong with getting the launch method a little more up to date since the new Boss engines haven't been available for testing for very long? Someone from off the street who's never driven a Gen3 or Boss powered car would never be able to get the sort of times the mags or the company engineers get, until they've had a lot of practice at doing it. So in some ways the times in the mags mean nothing.
