Default My first Quarter time

Been a few months since this but just now getting the chance to post.
Ran 12.349 at Zmax in May. Clutch slipped when I took a swing at the 11's this was the 4th run of the night and the car picked up speed each time (I was getting comfortable for the first time on sticky tires)

Yeah the clutch slipped next time i got up to the line. I put the nine inch in and then that was the first time i ever had anything sticky for a tire. In the process of getting set up with a clutch now and then I plan on taking some pretty heavy swings in at it. for you guys with six speeds? can we dial in the launch with wheel spin? or am I going to be feathering the clutch everytime? I am getting a triple disc clutch that really isnt going to like getting slipped off the line.

not bad, but there's a lot left just in the gear changes.. 1.5x 60' and some quicker gear changes, and that thing will go mid 11's at 118

Im currently installing a clutch and master and after that I hope it will be capable of a faster 60'. The clutch slipped when I tried anything quicker than the 1.79 i ran. So basically I agree and am attempting to go exactly that route!
