    Thanks.
    I'll be running as much boost as I can. Only reason I kept boost taper was to see if it helped with the misfires, but it didnt, so ill try running 20 psi flat from 4500-6500 if i can. we shall see

    Click here to enlarge i'm just joking here but i did read somewhere that pro drag car drivers should stay away from coffee and energy drinks/sugar a few hours before the race and try to eat some food that has a slow energy release such as pasta Click here to enlarge and thus, rigatoni, why not lol...i guess they were referring to bettering the reaction times

    EDIT: Found the link hehehe here it is (search for pasta):

    Dzenno is convinced that trap speed and ET is indirectly proportional to amount of Rigatoni consumed pre-race. Haha.

    I'm waiting to see a 10 out of LM's car. It's very doable.

    I'm sure it would be. But bumping the thread is a good thing.

    If you really want it in there I'll add it.

    Damn Steve, those are some suck ass 60' times. How were you launching the car? It looks like 1) you were babying it off the line 2) you weren't warming the tires up enough or 3) the track prep just sucked. I know those ET's are capable of a lot better and you will push it for the rental though

    1st gear launches, not really warming tire up, just getting the water off. track prep was awesome actually. these hankooks suck for straightline grip, so a couple 2.0 60's isnt bad really.
    i was babying it off the line a little but not much, i was launching at 2500, not sure of boost, and increased throttle as i started moving
    once it started slipping i just shifted to 2nd, let it spin a bit more, maybe %60 throttle and rode it out. i made sure not to hit the kickdown though

    I'm an idiot.... I forgot this was on 19" street tires Click here to enlarge I think the best I ever did on 18" street tires was 1.9x or 2.0x. Your 60' times aren't as suck ass as I thought Click here to enlarge

    +1 When I see logs of ATs with timing post shifts like this, it makes me cling on even harder not to bring the car in for software updates...
