    I launched at around 1500rpm since im still on street tires. Im not the best driver so i could prolly get a better launch with some more practice. I shifted around 6k. I know now that i should have shifted a lil earlier due to the NPI but u learn more everytime i guess.

    From my experience with mustangs of that power level and street tires this is the best track method:

    short little burnout to clean the tires off, a clutch drop works just fine

    hold the RPM at 2500, then when the lights come, just drop the clutch but don't move your foot. The tires will spin a little, but not enough to keep spinning as you roll into the throttle, but also not enough to let the car bog.

    Power shift at 5000-5500, but never more than that, stockish 5.0's don't like that kind of RPM.

    Appreciate the tips. I probably won't be back to the track until i get my PI intake and cams put in tho. Ne1 have ne tips for racing after the swap? Should i try and change anything or just stick with the way im going? I'll still be on street tires tho since im very broke and can't afford radials yet. :(

    Well it depends on what you have in your car, and elevation and all thet. What mods, if any, do you have? where are you located? stuff like that.
