Default I suck

First time w/ the car on the strip. 60ft was 2.2, 1/4 13.1 @ 111mph. I was REALLY easy off the line and never took my foot off the gas. Only other run was a 13.4 @ 107 and I missed 3rd. So, I suck, but I'm gonna get alot more practice now that I finally got a roll bar in my 'vert. Mods in Sig.

Get some sticky tires. Your 60' is horrible. Work on the launch and your times will dip deep into 12's.

I see a set of DR's in my near future! Oh yea, I only launched at 1.5k and I had no tire spin at all, go figure.

Practice until you get down to 2.0's on street tires then get some real tires. You should see some low 12's on DRS if not better, that is one heavy ***** though. Phat ride.
