Had great weather so went back tonight.

had just under 1/2 tank (didnt plan on going this weekend) and DA was around 1800.

Run 1 was 12.18 @ 117.2 1.92 60’
Run 2 was 11.993 @ 117.77 1.8216 60’ new pb across the board. 1/8 was 7.79 @ 92.12
Run 3 11.955 @ 118.11. 1.841 60’
Run 4 12.03 @ 117.8 1.892 60’
run 5 11.99 @ 118.14 1.832 60’
run 6 12.08 @ 118.05 1.915 60’
run 7 12.51 @ 103. 1.89 60’ (hit limiter in 1-2 got out of it at end)
run 8 12.078 @ 117.96. 1.89 60’

Run 9 it was 10pm and DA had dropped to around 800.

11.8331 @ 119.21 1.8234 60’
1/8 was 7.6863 @ 93.46

there was a big rumbly monster next to me on slicks and I was motivated to try and keep up, was ripping shifts hard.

gas was 1/4 by now, fronts at 37 psi, rears 19-20

did 1 more run to try for that 1.7x 60 and spun hard off the line. Run 10 11.97 @ 118.86 1.922 60’

Way to go, practice makes perfect at this game! Very fast shifts. Is this on street tires? Then it’s excellent driving. If on drag radials, try launching at higher rpm...your goal should be to eliminate that bog you hear and see at the launch. I floor it then start letting out the clutch. But you have to have drag radials and frankly I think my 4.10’s allow me to get away with that.

high 11’s are great so you are doing well. What are your mods again?

Base 2006, 142k miles. Vararam CAI, lightly ported TB (by me), Hinson LTH, no cats, 3” exhaust to slp loudmouth 2. 275/40/17 MT ET SS on c5z fronts. 390/390 tuned by Corey Henderson.

I kept trying to launch harder but when I would go back and watch video, I would still be in that 3.5-3.7k range.

Want 4.10’s and a fast 102 eventually, but it just isnt in the budget right now.

Here is last run of the night and most aggressive launch. It felt like it spun a lot (enough for rear to step right) but looking at video, maybe I should have stayed in it? Would be nice to have a bunch of data to analyze (throttle input, rpm, etc...need to get hp tuner cable and a cheap laptop)...and gears! And a fast102...might as well cam it and add a lil giggle gas. I need a second job, lol

Surprised you have wobble but you want to run as much pressure as you can and still get good launch traction. If you spin let some air out. I’d stay with 20 for now if I was you.

Hey Joe, what size tire you running on that lowered vette?
Still have the stock wheel well liners in?

Thanks...
