Default Bad 1/8th Mile time

Hey guys, I went to a track for the first time tonight and I'm not very happy with the numbers. I know that I spun through first gear almost every time even when launching from idle, and I also am starting to think that I was letting off too early; I never really figured out where the end of the track was, and they didn't mark it very well.

youll do alot better on some drag radials. youll drop your 60ft alot. 2.4 is no good. you should be at least mid to low 8s in the 1/8th. Deppending on what you have done. they should have something maked at the end if its to hard to see ask the staff or someone else racing

I think I will be buying some Nitto 555R's very soon. Even going into second gear my tires had some spin. Thanks for the advice.

There will be a reflector box in the middle of the track at the finish line. Actually two of them 60ft apart, the last one is the finish line.
