What rpm are you activating your nitrous. I've got mine set at 3000 and it's not spraying till after the 60ft.

Not sure how you are doing that. 3k rpm's 60 foot out doesn't seem possible. I am auto stalled and leave roughly at that rpm and at WOT nitrous is 100% on with no delay. When I run a 6spd I am leaving at 2,200 and shifting into 2nd gear before the 60 foot mark at 6,200 rpm's.

Tach switch set wrong? double the RPM (6000) seems believable

I guess I should explain the situation a little better. My car is a 02 Camaro 6 speed. 3.73 gears and 26 inch (315 wide) mickey Thompson drag radials. When I launch on the street I can spin the tire a little and it really takes off hard. At the track the car gets great traction and bogs and has to pull up the rpm range. If I dump the clutch the radials don't give as much and I just go up in smoke. With the t56 first gear at 2.66 and 26 inch tire and 3.73 gears 3000 rpm is at 24 mph. At 24 mph im right at the 60 ft box. The car picked up .7 seconds with a 100 shot and 3.73s but I was hoping for a little more. Especially in the 60 ft. So back to the question has anyone sprayed under 3000 with any luck?

You need to launch above 4k with a 6 speed. Get rid of those drags for the track and get a slick mt3053S(26 inch slick)


post up your time slip.

OK so you are taking it easy off the line. I would not spray below 3K rpm's if the car is under load trying to build mph and rpm's it could backfire and create all kind of problems for you. Just up the shot to 125 and see how it does. Make sure you are at WOT when the nitrous comes on.

Better tires and launch higher. My car never sees below 5000 rpm at the track. With nitrous you could launch at 4500 and spray straight out of the hole when you release the clutch.
