    Launching Tips???

    I have yet to run car at 1/4 mile track and I'm looking for advice on launching the car/such as RPMs...ect...?
    With this list of upgrades what is my best bet on getting quickest E.T.s besides slicks,gears and such...

    SLP induction kit w/smooth bellows
    MSD wires
    NDK plugs
    3" Texas Racing X-Pipe
    3" flowmaster outlaw race mufflers
    Hooker longtube headers
    ...along with all free mods

    Other than that it has B&M shifter,sway bar kit,torsion bar and is fully loaded!

    I will be doing this on 18"x9.5" Z06 rims and tires,not ideal but its what I'll be using since I want street times!

    What work best 4 me is a leveled off 3000 rpm launch, try to hold the gas pedal in the same position untill you hook the floor it and start hitting gears. This is a little tip try shifting out of 1st around 5500 in my car I seem to get a tenth better when I do. I try to shift just b4 the rev limiter on the rest of the shifts. If that doesn't work try rolling in to the clutch like you were taking off at a light.

    Your welcome, let us know how your times turn out. My 02 with very sim mods ran 12.90s @ 110 on street tires all night. I started at 2500 and worked my way up untill I started spinning to bad and 3000 ended up being the best rpm 4 me. Just drag radials dropped me to 12.5s but it also was to much 4 my clutch after only a few passes.
