Car should be at least in the 10.4 range like that. Are you on 808 tune or 840?

What was your 60ft time, and mph? ...better yet, post your best ticket.

The M/T ET Rs are about the best you can get.

Here is what I recommend, as I race....even in the crappy heat..... so "I" am looking forward to the next 2 months of cool weather.

not being smart with you at all.... go around the water if you can for burnout...back down right in front of it....
"I" do a manual 1st -2nd-3rd, left off brake and burn towards starting line with 18lbs of air in tires.
Shallow stage, meaning ….barely light the 2nd stage bulb..... then flat slam gas to the floor on the last yellow.
….OR, if your car dead hooks, and track is good, YOU can do the stall up torque load launch.
Make sure you are in DRAG/TRACK mode...… and with all traction control off if your car/track can handle that.

Let car shift itself....LOL...no paddling..... and let off at the finish line, as at my home track, some newbies let off at the signs, or
before that actual finish line stripe.

I would speculate even with crappy weather, humidity, altitude.... your DEMON should click off 1.45-1.50 60fts at [email protected] mph. (?)
….or even quicker, with race gas, DEMON computer.....etc.

Keep us posted...and good luck..... in the fall weather...with temps in the 50s or better, and density altitude better you can bank on a
full 2-4 solid tenths better with an increase of 2-4 mph.

Sunday I tried my new MT ET Rs for the first time, and was 87*, 1500 altitude 50% humidity and felt hot & sticky out.
Best pass flat punching it was [email protected] with a 1.47 60 ft time... I didn't experiment with loading the car up/ torque boosting.
Going to Cecil County this Friday I am pretty sure and hoping for some 10.3s.... gonna torque reserve launch this thing!

I was running race pcm 110 fuel mt et rs in the rear at 17 psi front skinny’s I did the rear seat delete plus took out the stereo in the trunk the DA I believe was around 5800

Gotcha….
...and yup with that DA.... you are really probably close to the car being right on for conditions.
I found one post in another thread....as I don't know where to find a DA to optimal calculator.

but, by using your ET X .9406 = 10.14 and MPH X 1.063 = 135 mph.... that was a good run.

Honestly, I think your 60 ft could be in the high 1.4s ….but I truly don't think you are doing anything wrong.

GOSH, I get mad when it is over 1200-1900 ft... LOL I love Cecil County's close to 0 -to- 200 DAs and cool temps.
So, maybe some other knowledgable people can chime in.

if you can get your hands on a Pail of VP fuel MS109 . . . it is oxygenated, so perhaps try that.. solid 1-2 tenths there.

Good Luck....and get to another area or track with better DAs..... as running certain times or NOT is frustrating.

thanks for sharing...and I do NOT think technique or tires, or car set-up is hindering you that much at all. its weather DA etc.

NEVER fully defeat the Traction/Stability control. Run DRAG drive mode straight up. Also what brand of fuel are you running???? Most 110 is leaded. Your car is right about where it should be for the weight and DA you had. Good luck.
