Then describe in as best detail how you make your pass, including burnout and shift points, did you drive thru the water box or back up into it? I need to see your whole slip too, we will get to the bottom of this guy

Id take it now, so you get a base, I wish I did but track wasn't open in the winter and I only installed 3 mods, well 2 that make a difference
Well normally I back in to the water box, pull up a little, I burn out as best I can (slp line locks are back ordered and last time I went was the first time I used my brakes in my burnout) then I stage, launch at about 2500 rpm and run a half second above stock times. LOL. I think that my burnout is probably the culprit cause in my last outing I had the most decent burnout I've had and finally ran a high 13. My 60 foot time is 2ish. I don't have the latest time slip cause I stopped saving them but I have an older one but it was ran on street tires.

Re: Quest for 12s

whats your MPH ??
It seems low 13's to 12's is a big jump for some reason
that's all I ran in My Mach 1 for the longest time 13.00's - 13.2's with 2.0 60's
then one night all the planets aligned and I hooked a 1.7 60 and ran a solid 12.79 at 108
i haven't raced it since , lol

Well I did my fuel filter and oil and switched my violent to water and water wetter. And I changed my plugs about 15k miles ago. I just changed my plugs again for the nitrous so we will see. April 4th is the big day.

Uhhh before your spray I'd try to run better times, it would be embarrassing to run low 13s on nitrous, I'd also try and get a different tune for your car, possible a dyno tune so you can pinpoint it to car trouble or driver troubles and it's good to have a nitrous tune

Basohol, can u give me the exact wheel size your running. There are to many 15" wheels out there for my simple mind to figure it out. The back spacing has me confused.
