Any ideas why this car doesn't suffer from wheel hop ? :hmm:


I've asked mrbadss if he'll host the whole video on the cadillacfaq.

If I could launch like that it would be possible to achieve the Cadillac preformance numbers!

I got it going sideways once. :cool:

I will get some video of me doing a nice big burnout for everyone some time in the coming week(s).

Yes but 13.7 still isn't all that great a launch for a 108 trap speed.

When you see a guy smoking the tires off the line, the ET is NG. He probably lost 2 sec rolling on rubber bearings.

Looks like he starts from the burnout box. It's not hard to get a good burnout started when they start from a low friction surface.
