15.6et with .001rt. My 60ft was terrible. Smoking the tires all the way. Can't hook up and the car has a dead spot when I shift into second and all of 4th gear is flat. Can't figure it out.

Best time out of 5 runs at Action this weekend was a 14.33 and crossed the line at 97.75. Still not my quickest but was well chuffed as its a replacement engine so atleast it runs good times still.

Now to get into the 13's lol.

I'm fully stripped out, 1 seat no dash running 8's with around 24psi in the fronts to help with grip.

I ran with a 1/4 tank of fuel to help also. Then the only other tip is to pre load your drive shafts, ie bite the clutch a bit so the drive shafts are already twisting if ouy like so when you launch no times lost there.

Then I hold the handbrake on and hold the revs at around 1500-2000 then when the light goes drop the handbrake and give it some beans lol, I try not to go mad in first and then full throttle in second and then make the most of the revs in each ghear been carefull to shift just before the limiter, hope that helps dude. :up:

That does help. My Reaction time was .001, so im getting off the line well. I have more weight, cheap tires, and I am running a catalytic converter as well.
