First time at the track with my 2011 WRX Sedan. Only mod is a Stage 1 TP flash. Full interior.
Temperature was about 86 F with high humidity.

Best run:
60' - 2.03
1/8 - 9.15 @ 77.04 MPH
1/4 - 14.19 @ 96.83 MPH

I was shifting at about 6400 RPM but probably should have shifted closer to 6000. I need to work on my launch, but my trap speed seems kind of low compared to other posts I've seen on various forums...

hmm 14.19 for an 09+ seems a bit high but this is your first time.. what tire did you use what psi in them.. and shifting at 6k seems a bit to late i am not sure.. your best bet would be to see a dyno chart to see where you need to shift

I was using the stock Dunlops and at stock rated specs. The track was prepped pretty well, so thinking back, maybe I should have inflated them a bit more?

you need to have minimal wheel spin on a launch just like a little churp without bogging out... deflate tiers if you need more traction and inflate if you need less.. also tire temp affects it. and it looks like shifting for 09+ is also optimal betwen 5500 and 5700 rpm..

id launch 4-5k and shift 7k on a tp map. you have a vf52, not a td04, beat the snot out of it and youll see magic. thats what i do on stage 2 and get low 13's, and had high 13's with your setup (2010 WRX)

I took my car to the track for the first time a few weeks ago also. Everything 100% stock other than my Cobb AP with a stage 1 tune. My best run was 13.4 @ 101 with a 1.8 60ft. Launched at 5k rpms, shifted at 6500.

I would really like to get a 12.99 at stage 2 now.

here is some quick thread with dyno charts with tp stg 1 its a 2010 and a 2009 same turbo as the 2011 and in bolth instences power starts dropping off at around 6000 to 6300 shifting at 6500 ima is just right for a vf-52 my best sujestion to you is something i did not do and that is to go and get a bone stock dyno then a stg 1 dyno then a stg 2 dyno and so on so you can see your cars progretion and know how it responds to what mods and how to proparly drive it :)
