    You've got room left to improve with your 60 and getting it below 2.0 will get you in the 13s. That's a respectable time for Bristol. They typically don't prep the track very well for Street Fights (or at least they didn't a couple years ago when I stopped going).

    My best time there with my new combo was a 12.91 @ 107 with a 2.0 60' on DRs lol

    Not a bad time. Work on that 60, and you'll drop into the 13s.

    Put a few more miles on that motor and let it break in. But a dyno will tell you if you can shift at 6K if you're not dropping power yet. 5500 is about it for my HCI GT40 5.0.

    Honestly 100MPH depending on your weight is not bad. Do you have gears?

    He has 3.55 gears. Which should be fine. 373's or even 410's may help, but to me this looks like it's the indian, not the arrow.

    Work on that 60' time, brother.

    Dumping the clutch at 2500 and slowly feeding throttle as traction allows.I know this is not ideal...just how i do it

    If you were just getting into 4th, go ahead a wind third out a little more. When I used to run one of my motorcycles in the 1/8, i would pop the rev limiter 4 or 5 ft before the finish line. It was still quicker doing that than shifting into 3rd

    You should try taking off like a normal stop light it will most likely not spin or slip the clutch at 2k rpm. Rev it out until you feel it still pulling, I usually go to 6k-6200
