    yuor times aren't that bad considering you were spinning, get some good drag radials if you want a lower et.

    Dude, its your first time. Your not going to be a pro right away. Your times seem good just get your 60' down. If your on street tires lower the psi 5 pounds in the rears and try, just experiment. My best 60' is a 2.2 but I can't let pressure out for the fact, I didn't have a gauge, and no tank or anyplace to put air in. My best was a 12.90 @ 115, with a MPH like that I should be low 12's at least with a good 60'. The more you do, the better you will become.

    Not bad, quit beating yourself up and just practice your launches. Your times were the same as mine before I put on my longtubes. Remember, get your 60 ft down .2, you will lower your ET by .2 or .25. I try to slip my clutch and tires equally, I have had a few 1.98 -2.01 60 ft times that way. Usually I am near 2.08 or so. I am putting on new tires (not slicks) this summer and will try those. No burnouts to warm them up tho, it cost me $750 for a set even tho I work at Goodyear!

    what size are your tires? they look bigger than 18's go smaller and lower the tire pressure until the tires stop spinnin, that got me from 13.6 to 13.4 in my stock z28.

    Are you driving through the water?

    If so that's a BIG no no! Drive around the water and only do a light haze on the tires to clean them off. Street tires don't like heat at all.
    Also you should go to the local junkyard and replace the rear springs with some used V-6 ones. Also if you just undo the 2 end links on the front swaybar it will allow the front end to gain a couple inches of travel to aid in weight transfer.
    Don't be afraid of the bottle!!! Be afraid of your tune!!!
