Actually do a burnout before launching, this is a technique that I've had good results with. I know gyear f1s aint cheap, but you need to get some heat in them tires before you launch.

what he said,,,



i had my tire PSI at around 22 in the rears and the fronts were almost at max, i never touched them, it's all about the lounch, im sure your rims lowed you down a bit

how are your shifts with the 3.91 diff?? seems kinda high!!

edit: i see ur 1/8 times is really nice, it must be the gears, when i ran my 13.9 @99mph run i have a 9sec 1/8 time... and my car is 3075lb +177lb(me).....
