What "should" my car run?

I have never taken my car to the strip, and not sure if I ever will. Just wondering what it "should" run in the 1/4. It's an 03' MCS with the 200hp JCW kit on it.

Any ideas?

Sea level on a cool summer day with low humidity I'd put most factory equipped MINIs between 14-17 seconds. Driver (reaction time, shift points), tires, clutch (and how much your willing to strain it), how long you have to wait in light (search: heatsoak) are just a handful of the factors that can help or hurt that time.

This thread is full of times that will help you get a ballpark of what people have actually run https://www.northamericanmotoring.co...-database.html
