    i have cut consistant 1.8-9's with just drag radials on an m6 leaving at 3700-3800 and just dumping the clutch. Its all about the fear factor of breaking something. Drive it like ya stole it. my car also weighs 3340 with 2 gals of gas.
    I have no power windows/doors/seats/mirrors. the track i went to also has very good prep.

He switched over to an M6 in a GTO (6.0 liter), and now knows how hard it is to launch a manual F Body. Autos are the way to go for drag racing, but I don't feel like it takes any skill to drive an auto (Sorry if I offend auto owners, i've raced an automatic car before, didn't take much skill).
    None taken here, it's about pre-thought and mods to me. I know I wanna drag it or at least have some fun with my girl. Thought long and hard on the m6 but the A4 won out, now that I have the shift pressures reset and a stall speed converter I am happy that I did. Simply can't outshift an A4 man..I have run a couple SS's Z's with sticks that are near my level of mod's and I remain happy too, ran a couple with better mods and I wasn't so happy heh ( envious of the power) but happy for those guys. I dont get the whole m6 A4 war issue, it's run what ya brung aint it? Some dudes fight over dumb arse stuff tho
