    Hello,

    In my view it's the norm if you got the 2.73 differential.

    Auto and vert = slow because the weight, but you can change this number if you made some mods.

    I remember a test drive of a 96 GT manual, this models do 14.99 without any mods.

    Get the gears and some sticky rubber should put you into the high 14's.

    gears and tires make a considerable difference

    Converter/gears/weight is what is really hurting you.

    Your converter stalls at such a low speed.
