    how to drag race a 2000 Z28 A4

    Just got a 2000 Z28 A4 82,000 miles, brand new 245/50/ZR/16's

    Im wondering how to launch it, shift it manualy?

    WHat kind of times should I get out of it is i can get a good launch? Could I get over a 100 MPH in the 1/4 mile?

    What kind of 60ft time can I get? Could I pull a 1.8-1.9 60ft time?

    Thanks, Jason

    How to launch

    I just put mine in Drive and go from there. I'd drop the rear tire pressure down to about 20 psi. Just do a small burnout to clear the tires off. Bring the tach up to just about when the tires start to spin, then leave on the 2nd yellow. You should get good traction on a good track. 60 ft times will be under 2.0. I had a 3.73 and borla and some other mods so it wasn't completely stock. This was at an awesome track though with a concrete launch pad.
