    Get the stall first! I found my best times brake stalling to 1800 (stock stall)and just letting off the brake then nail the gas otherwise it'll blow the tires away. Can't really say too much as of yet as my best 60 is a 2.20 but that was spinning way less than any other method I've tried. Also I noticed eibach springs so you're lowered? If you are and don't have LCA relocation brackets you will not hook reguardless.

    Yea i got it lowered 1.6. I hook instantly though, thats my problem. I cant get the RPMs up high enough at the gate to accelerate. If i could get the tires to spin at the gate, the RPMs would climb quicker and i could get up to speed quicker. My pads are brand new so they grip the rotors like their lives depend on it. Which means i can only rev it to about 1500 because i have extremely grippy tires with extremely grippy pads...like that unstoppable force meats an immovable object conundrum.

    well here you could probably get in 15+ passes if you played your cards right depending on when you came. i've seen some nights you could theoritically run every other pass or so.

    Yea if you can keep it running that long, you can easily get over 15 passes in it seems. Most of the people come to watch, and a majority of the ones that race are tuning their car more than running it. So all the other guys who just want to run their car get a lot of opportunity.
