Hey don't worry we all have to start some where, and it's all good fun, there's quite a bit of technique needed to get the car launching with out excessive wheel spin;), What were your 60ft times and trap speed like.

youll get beta dude. you've done alot of performance mods now look your running gear, tyres and suspension.

plus youll need to find what type of launch suits you. how were u launching?

I got booted in stage one of dyo they put me up against a 11 sec GSR haha.

How i was launching was reving to 4000 with the hand break up and the clutch out a little and then just dumped them both at the last yellow light.
but yea "skid skid skid" so i did a few dif rev ranges like 2000 and 3000 but still skidded when i planted my foot.

so i will give it another go when i have some better tires and suspention work

What do you all think of my reaction times and 60' time and track speed etc etc are they good or bad i have no idea.

This is 2 of my best time slips.



Videos of me and mike will be up some time this week

someone told me that if you ran the track with your standard wheels on the back you will get a better ET??
