put about 28 lbs of pressure in your rear tires. and bump ur front tires up to 40 for less friction on top end. Depending on how the track is holding up i sometimes go down to 25-26 just dont go down to much bc u will start spinning when you shift on top end. Also make sure u avoid the water and do a light burnout to clean the tires off. I pulled a 1.8 60ft on the stock tires using this method. hope this helps

Gotta get that 60ft better. That's what usually determines your ET!

With that trap you should be seeing low 13s depending on your DA. I hit [email protected]

What they all said. Focus on your 60 foot which means practicing your launching techniques. Find what works best for you and practice it. Get the 60 ft down and your ET will get better. Also, don't be surprised when your mph drops a little but you ET better with a better 60 ft. You can get a higher MPH when you are spinning your tires but it will hurt your ET.

Practice, practice and more practice. Looks like you are headed in the right direction though.

Just ran my car for the 1st time (or any car for that matter)

The tree caught me sleeping, but but here's the numbers:

RT: .703
60': 2.46
1/8: 9.125 @ 83.7
1/4: 13.74 @ 106.5

This was a Houston Raceway in 60 degree weather with so much mist in the air you could see it. We got 2 runs in before they shut us down. On my first run I turned off T/C and left stabilitrack on. Well I wheel hopped halfway down the track for a 16 second pass. Ironically I had a much better R/T on that pass.

Second pass is above. The tree caught me sleeping because I was sitting there pissed at myself for my poor burnout attempt. I launched with TC in "all-off" mode from barely above idle.

We all start somewhere right?

There is nothing wrong with that, as you get to know the car and the track it will only get better.. Just remember the reaction time does not effect your ET..
