I'd say if that launch picture showed the front tires off the ground a decent height, like that van pictured, then I'd be more inclined to think, OK, it's a pretty quick car. Considering the 12 second car that my Auto Tech class raced could lift the front tires, theres nothing about that launch that says 9 second car.
I'm guessing 12's, maybe 11's.
