So the night was a pro tree and I had not set up the launch control. Trying to find the right rpm was difficult. 3000 would bog and 4200 would spin. Next time out I'm going to use the launch. Anyone in San Antonio/Austin have a pair of slicks I can borrow for a night? Lol.

Any pointers? I had a better 60ft with 225 Sumitomos and 330rwhp last I was out....in 2006.

T-56 and 3.55 gears. Not great but at 122 I'd have to shift into 5th with a 4.10.

Guessing you were right lane?

Get the 2 step working and find an rpm you can launch at with wot that won't bog or spin. I'd also get some bigger, better tires on there.

Yes, I'm the right lane.

For the street, I'm quite happy with the tire setup. The ECU is back at the manufacturer due to a hardware glitch but after that I'll try the 2 step at the track. It was surprisingly easy to setup.
