    Would you mind sharing your launch technique? Some say you have to start in second gear-everyone says roll into the throttle...

    Excellent times and consistency.
    What's the elevation at your track?
    Only had my car to the tract once so far. 11.50's at 4000',plus it wasn't a good air day, same mods as you have.

    Our track base is 2372' and with corrected altitude (on friday) was 2900'. Usually our track is anywhere from 3600-4400' corrected.

    Our track is "the house of hook" :cool: On track rentals I can launch in 1st but on our 'street legals', I need to launch in 2nd and then switch to auto. My fastest ET was leaving at 1200RPM and softly mashing the pedal (10.83). I tried putting it against the converter and if feels like the first 60' is dead and runs 10.94 (and the tires are not spinning). I've been reading a few post on the torque management for the trans computer and I think this is why I find that the car runs slower if you launch on the converter. I'm thinking that there must be something that the computer reads the torque multiplication and backs out the timing???? Someone like TC would be able to shed more on that with all his R&D.... Just my .02 cents but I know every car and driver is a bit different. Give it a shot and see if this helps.

    I can't wait to get some time slips. Your doing a great job with yours.
    how many times have you had it at the track?
    Looks like you have some experience launching it
