    We are struggling to 60ft. Car doesn't have 500 moles yet so no launch control. We are in the 1.8s. A little fooling around and we'll have it.

    What tire pressure are you running?

    It was about 73 degrees at the time of the 10.985 pass. I'm not exactly sure of the DA.

    I believe there is a bit more left in it. The first few passes of the day were awful as far as short times were concerned. The tires were new and it is not easy to get it right gas/brake launching. Once the tires had a few passes and more rocks hanging from them life got easier. Next time we come back we will be past 500 miles and will be able to use launch control. The consistency will help. It was in the low 60s when we arrived, and I feel that the 1.6 60ft coupled with cooler air would help. The 1.6 60ft had not a hint of wheelspin. What killed us earlier was running through the brakes at the tree when trying to load up with gas/brake. Next time we will use launch control. I hope to touch a 1.5 60ft.

    My money is on a much worse run with launch control. If you are hitting a 1.6x 60' I say if it ain't broke don't fix it!! Have you tried the launch control?

    If you have good track prep, and good weather you should be able to get very consistent. For me my best passes are an 1800 launch with a quick roll into the throttle. I produced four 1.6x 60 foots in a row. Best being a 1.61 and 1.69 being the worst.
