    bad track times...

    i have an 00SS it has lts,exhaust,lid, and UD Pulleys. before when i just had catback my car dynoed at 323hp and i think 348 torque. and at the track my best time was 13.9 -.-. i'm guessing it's my launch. it's consistently a 2.5-2.8 it seems it either spins or bogs down. i can't seem to find the "sweet spot" and i'll only trap at 103-105. any thoughts? tips? something

    it tells me that you are either revving too high and dumping the clutch and she spins or you are afraid her to spin so you rev it low and dump the clutch and she bogs.

    the sweet spot is, rev her up to 3k and ride the clutch, slip it. the second she starts moving, you let go the clutch completely and pedal to metal. easy. Practice this and you will start cutting some decent 60'

    good luck.

    yep, it's all in your 60's. The rule of thumb is a tenth at the 60 mark is almost 2 tenths on the big end. Cut that down to at least a 2.0 and you'll be knocking on 12's door.
