LOL I already told ya Al to set 'em to 2.

First time I did that, my eyes did this after the wheels came back down. After a couple of minutes of recovery, I was ready to go again... with them on 3.

Al's got a 6-speed, and it's a heavy car (no weight reduction). I think he'll bounce too much on 2. I'd start with the fronts on 3 or 4, right rear on 6, and left rear on 5.

Agreed on the tire pressure. 12-13.

Of course, I'm no Coach.

Thumbs up

Have some ***** and set the thing on 2 in the front and 4 on the rear.

Set the 2-step at 5000rpms and dump that thing on the 3rd yellow light and hold on.

It is all fun in love and drag racing.

PS. Andrew, I wish I was a computer expert like you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

LMAO... 5000? Shoot, I'd dump my wife's minivan at 5000.

6400 off the 2-step is where I'm starting tomorrow. Prolly 5800-6000 on the spray.

Hal's on 4. I bounced way too much on 2 or 3.
