How high Rpm should I launch
Hey guys I'm wondering with my new tire set up what rpm I should launch at the track? My first and only track time was in October and I could only manage a 60' time if 2.14, 1/8 of 9.5, and 1/4 of 14.6@97mph. This was with my 2002 GT very 5 SPF with the following done.
1. Mac LT, prochamber, and SLP LM1 weld ins
2. JLT ram air intake.
3. Steeda springs. MM sf connectors, tokico blues
4. Stock 3.27 gears and Crappy Nexen all season CP672 245/45/17.
Only new mods now are the massive 315/35-17 Nitto 555 (non DR), 3:73 gears, and a SR performance plenum and some lightweight front seats.
Basically I want to try to get sub 2 second 60' times and get into the 13s when I take it to the track in March. At the same time I don't want to kill my TR3650 or the other than gears stock 8.8. So what Rpm should I launch at? I was going at about 2k and slipping the clutch so as now to spin too much, but also to not kill the tranny. Also what tire pressure should I run the rear an frońts. I'll probably do a short 2nd gear burnout just to get them clean and a little stickier. Thanks.
