    Yeah Nitto 555R I tried to give it some revs this time and spun on the start had a terrible 60 ft of 1.93 and ran 11.62. Guess I will try stomping from idle this time

    so after my 11.0 run when it hooked, I did exactly what u did, and did 11.6 also at 2.1 60 ft, next run, burn out hard like john force, u gotta get those nittos hot, set your custom mode for track everything but street suspension, hold down traction button for 5 seconds and shut it off, when u stage instead of nailing the throttle ( I did it and it worked once but not the other 2x), just give a hint of roll on as u feel it hook. depending on track prep u can nail it if the tires are nice and hot but if it spins try feathering it on next run good luck! bring us 10's!

    Yes!!! Cheesy one, but who cares. No one will see it anyway. Lol. I wanted to go this weekend but I had company show up. Have to wait for next open track day. I think in a couple weeks. Just have to hope weather is good. Gonna practice my launch later on. :D Weather is gorgeous here today!!!

    Next OPEN track day? Never heard of that. Sat/Sun is always open for running.

    P.S. Kick the company out;)

    Yeah, the drag strip has various events and only had open track days certain times. I was invited to the Corvette track day, but I need practice before I show them what up!
