Getting rid of the wheel hop on the car will probably drop the thing into the high 12s with an experienced and skilled 1/4 mi. driver. I don't know if I will take it back all that often but I may do a few rented events (just a few guys I know) at a local place after I get the BMR kit.
My 13.94 pisses me off so much I am determined to get it where it should be and then give up entirely.
If I had gotten decent starts with no spin/hop I probably would have pulled 13.5-6 with no problems on my FIRST ever time at a drag track.
My best time was a 13.404 @ 109.53mph. I know the car can do better than this because every time I launched I bogged down. I found the best for me was to rev up to 3500 and walk out the clutch while bringing up the gas. Very hard to do and hard on the clutch, but I know I can nail the low 13's if I can perfect this!
Lets hear your thoughts on the launching !
This is definately the way to launch. That's a good mph. too. Cal, what was the mph on your 13.90 run. If you're in the 107-109 range, you can get the car to run LOW 13's with the right launch.
