However this time I took a friend took video to show you experts what i'm doing and maybe we'll figure out how to get those 1.5x 60fts the car should be cutting.


R/T .315 (crazy enough the other driver my friend had the EXACT same R/T)
60ft-1.814-Launched 5500rpm spun hard
330ft-4.996
1/8th-7.588
mph--96.72
1000ft-9.816
1/4mi-11.658
MPH--123.76

R/T .096
60ft-1.722-Launched at 5K rpms bogged hard
330ft-4.957
1/8th-7.560
mph--96.15
1000ft-9.785
1/4mi-11.622
MPH--123.95

R/T .236
60ft-1.700-Launched at 5500rpm spun sideways out of the hole and kept in it
330ft-4.843
1/8th-7.413
mph--97.12
1000ft-9.626
1/4mi-11.457

Your spinning in my opinion isn't as bad as you let on in my eyes. It's not like your spinning all the way through first. I do think its enough to keep you out of the tens though.

I'd say at this point you have to find a sweet spot between 5000 and 5500 rpms.

Do that and keep everything else you do consistant, and you'll be there before you know it.

Do you full with tire pressure, or temperature at all (ie: longer burnouts)?

This could help.

iburke So whats your trouble. I see 60' times come down as track cools(Tires heat up, more runs), and I see trap speed going up as the air cools (increase HP)
