First time to the dragstrip in my stock 2008 135

I went to Cecil County, MD last friday with my buddy and we ran our cars. I have a 2008 Alpine White on black 135i 6MT. The car is bone stock and had a full tank of gas. Temperatures were around 70-75 Fahrenheit.

I've only had the car for about a month so this was my first time to the track and my very first run ever in the car happened to be my best:

60' - 2.209
330 - 5.851
1/8 - 8.826
MPH - 83.37
1000 - 11.383
1/4 - 13.548
MPH - 104.78

I ran a total of 4 times, two of which I missed second gear. My last run is the only other worth mentioning:

60' - 2.175
330 - 5.872
1/8 - 8.870
MPH - 82.62
1000 - 11.438
1/4 - 13.613
MPH - 103.88

The only thing I can attribute to my going slower in the last run despite having a better 60' is the fact that while I got a better launch, the car started wheel hopping at the end of first/beginning of second.

Overall, I was pretty happy with the car and the times...I just have to stop missing second!
