    whoa..ok, i'm gonna try my best to figure out what you said.

    You have a manual LS1. You spin on launches and grind gears while racing?

    OK, don't rev up so high on launch. Get it up to about 1200-1500 and then drop the hammer. That should chirp the tires and get you moving forward. After about a half a second you should have the car in solid motion; go wide-open throttle.
    sometimes it helps to heat up the tires prior to a launch by doing a big ole burnout.

    Shift when you hit the rev limiter (6000) or:
    1st-2nd: 40mph
    2nd-3rd: 70mph
    3rd-4th: 95 mph
    4th-5th: 120mph

    when shifting, make sure you got that pedal all the way to the ground. if you have a high milaged 99, you could have a fried slave cylinder [the 01-02 transmissions/clutches/slaves were sooo much better] Do you grind when driving under normal conditions?

    thanks

    No not at all, just when im on it hard. i think when i take off and go for a gear its clutch in to the floor then by the time the shifter is in the middle my foot is off alittle. Then I go 4 it and it grinds its happend afew times and some times its all smooth.thanks 4 the mileage break down

    yeah, sounds like the issue is your pushing forward on the clutch, while the acceleration is pushing you back...sucks for short dudes [self included]
