Well, after much frustration, I finally got a decent pass lol

2 step set to 5500 RPM, car's weight around 3670 (only removed the spare and was on a little over a half tank of gas), and the air was pretty damn good. I was ready to pull the sway bar and launch from 6000 the way the track was hooking lol

Previous best:

60'..........1.773
330'........4.978
ET..........7.574
MPH........95.951

Today's runs:

Run 1:
60'..........1.743
330'........4.909
ET..........7.466
MPH........97.538

Run 2 (best):
60'..........1.584
330'........4.649
ET..........7.173
MPH........98.474

Run 3:
60'..........1.609
330'........4.679
ET..........7.214
MPH........97.992

The shifting is a little sub-par, mainly on the best run, because after the launch felt so good I was MAKING SURE I hit all the gears lol

Here are the vids:

Thanks man. I am just glad I got a good launch down and it hooked. Next time I will see about getting the weight around 3600 and launching higher. I am interested to see how much faster the car can go now. This has given me more confidence at least and a good feel for the launch. It felt damn good!

That 7.1x is sweet. How big of a shot were you spraying? What kind of tire?

Thanks man

No shot, the car does not have nitrous on it, although every tells me to do it haha That was on motor, although the 7.1 run sounded like I purged, that was my buddy and his annoying sniffing lol

I am running a 295/45/17 MT drag radial

I just got to watch the video. Badass! The launch came off well on the 7.1. Bump that two step up and let's see what happens.

Thanks. They canceled T-n-T on Saturday due to high wind and prob water still seeping to the track after all the rain. They just moved it to Sunday.
