Re: start off (GTIStile)

my best 1/8 mile time is 9.9... i have launched the car from three thousand all the way down till i was not reving, and it just spins all the way through first. i have street tires goodrich g-force kdw. and air is the same amount i run around town with.

Re: start off (glidude)

drop the pressure in the tires to around 25psi +/- a few. start around 3k rpms for your launch and feather the clutch, dont sidestep it. 9.9 really isnt that bad, but could be better http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
