    1st run=15.1 @ 92.5mph
    2nd run= 14.9 @ 91.8mph
    3rd run= 15.1 @ 92.7mph
    This was my first time at the track, so my launches were not consistent and were all tire spiners! I'll post pics and vids tonight when I get them together. My best reaction time was .6 because I'm not used to a tree. I think my 60ft time is 2.45...My first time slip! lol..... so how do these # look fellas?

    work on your launches! You should be able to get down to 2.0 flat on street radials. Do that, and your ET will DROP! Don't worry about adding power right now, get your ass back out there and PRACTICE!!!! WIth that kind of time with a shitty 60ft like that, you have a HEALTHY car but your driving needs some work.

    p.s. learn the launch and learn to power shift!

    it is when you shift without letting up on the gas......keep it floored and shift FAST. It is dangerous, and can blow a tranny QUICK, im not trying to talk you out of doing it in fact this was a topic not too long ago and I was the only one that condoned doing it. It will give you a few on your et but it can tear the hell out of a tranny. I do it now and always have but beware :(.

    It takes natural ability and practice both.....if your fast you can do it, if your not better not try it :D

    Its a reg shift just as fast as you can do it. Idle doesnt drop all the way but its not in boost.
