    Well the track opened this weekend and we took advantage of it. Here's a fwew vids we made. I know there slow in comparison to others on the forums, but I assure you it was fun.

    1st vid is me in right lane. Running against a friend in his wife's 2005 Mustang GT convert 5spd. Only mods are mufflers to the 2005

    2nd vid is the same race but from in car. My brother-in-laws GF rode alond to see how it was.

    Also to let you guys know that I beat my best time this weekend.
    slip as follows

    r/t .115
    60' 2.278
    330 6.091
    mph 60.39
    1/8 9.269 :nice: :flag:
    mph 77.14

    Is it possible that me putting that O/R H-pipe on dropped my time a 10th. I ran another 9.3 and a few 9.4's also.

    Nice runs, but from what I have learned at the track, a dry hop after the burnout will actually take some bite out of the tires!

    If I keep the RPM"S low enough I dont have an issue with traction. Im launching around 2k, I have found anything above and I break loose.

    I have found and all the racers I race with seem to think dry hops just take the heat out of the tires. If it works for you then do it, I have never dry hopped and got a better 60', and have never seen or heard a racer do it or say it helps.

    What kind of 60's were you hitting? It almost sounds like you could use more RPM and clutch slip to get better 60's!

    1/8 9.269 Heres my time slip. Dont exactly know how the clutch slip thingworks:shrug: I assume you mean to ride the clutch some to keep from spinning. I'm still a rookie when it comes to dragracing:D 25th I wasn't doubting your knowledge at all, I am actually taking note. Thanks. Keep in mind the little amount of mods that I have.
