Are you spraying out the hole? If so I think anything over 4k is gonna spin. If you come on on motor then hit the button I'd try 4500. But it really depends on the track prep. If you blow the tires lower the launch rpm by 200 and vice versa if you bog. First time down the strip is the most fun of all my passes. -Mark

Id try a little more RPM. It might bog at 4500. Id try 5500 and work from there.

You are one ******* brave man to have spend all that money added 150 shot of juice and not have any idea of what to launch at. Not flaming you - just making a statement!!

4:11 gears - first time out I guess - a 150 shot - and no one worries about the gear?

good luck hooking with the drag radial. just keep raising the rpm and lowering the tire psi

Its not my first time out in this car. With just 100 shot and all stock motor with just clutch and 4.10 I ran 12.1 with bfg's wheel hopping. but this is a brand new setup everything is new to me so I was just wondering what everyone thought thats all. And now I have 27x10.50 hoosier quick time pros on it. so I think I should be on I hope

4-5000 launch on juice..plenty of gear and theres enough tire there for it.. is that a tranny mount t/q arm, 600ft of tq on spray might be to much for it
