I talked to you there last night. I was in the silver 05. Get that 60' down and you will be fine.

Knock that 60 foot down to 1.7 or 1.6 and you'll be in the mid-low 13s easy.
yes that is what i figured i thought my launch was pretty good i was blipping the rpm's between 5500 and 6000 and letting off the clutch fast but not dumping it. i don't know what else really to do to get the 60 ft down,

your friend told me you went a 12.6 that's pretty damn good.you will have to thank him for me i raced him on my last pass and he let me stage and get my rpm's up before he staged that was nice of him.

flat foot shifting is keepin the gas pedal floored' regardless of clutch activity goin up through the gears.

pedal to the metal the whole way down the strip. never lifting til' the finish.
