    video of one of my low 12.6 runs (car ran low 12.6's consistantly all day)


    12.58 run video should be up soon hopefully. My goals are coming up to quick and havent added or changed anything. Only thing i did this time out was mess with tire pressure and launch tech. Almost time for some new tires then i'll be into the 1.7 60's easily. Moving to et streets cause i'm going to need the extra traction very soon. my xmas gift for the car should be here next week, but wont be done for another 4-6 weeks after that. Have to buy a couple of goodies and put it on the dyno to check a couple things

    Nice. Wonder what mine will run then. I put down 109 MPH before I changed my clutch. Took off like a street start and then nailed it when I knew I could get traction and ran a 13.8 at 109MPH with a 2.5 60'..

    nitto's with a 1.8 60 foot? are you goin off idle, or are you foot brakin' it? you should definetly foot brake launch it. makes a bigg differnece for an automatic car. you could probly launch up near 2 grand with your stall in it.

    nice pass though. hot car

    basically launching off idle just preloading the suspension at around 1200-1500 rpms then flooring it . Any higher and the car just brakes loose

    oh, what width tires you got?

    have you tried leaving at higher rpms, then rolling into the throttle?

    whatever. still a nice car making a nice pass....good job
