Went to Wednesday night Drags today...

First time going to the drag strip with my car...didn't have a clue what to do and got *****ed at by the drag officials....they are such di cks. They're all like....MOVE BACK! WHAT ARE YOU DOING? MOVE UP! BLAH BLAH BLAH!

Extremely not happy with my times, for some reason, I couldn't get traction at ALL! So pissed off....I ran like 6 times and I kept on spinning like a mo fo.
The fastest time I got was 15.0
I was expecting at least high 14s. Oh well, next time....

Condition of my SO3s are excellent. Bought them like 3 months or so ago or less.
Launching at 2300rpm. Due to my differential. Then let out air in my tires and launched it at 2500rpm. Launched it at 2k as well and 2800rpm. Also feathering the gas. I think my clutch is gone because the last time, I straight up shifted into 2nd and the damn tires were spinning<---this is after I've already taken off and had a good start. So pissed.

Did you see my dad there? He was dragging the 2002 E46 M3 LSB.

At LACR you multiply your time by .97 for sea level time. LACR is 2700ft above sea level.

Do you finally know how to stage now?
