First time at legit track

So I went to an 1/8 mile track and I ran a 9.001 with. 2.24 60ft. How do people get the 60 down cause I felt that's what was killing me! I was launching at 2200rpm and it seemed the best cause at 3000 I spun through first and some of second.. I'm running a 08 gt with bolt ons and nitto 555s 295s... Are those numbers bad?

What was your mph? And yea that 60' is pretty bad. Only thing that will make you better is seat time

For your first time at a track that 60 foot is pretty good. When I took mine to the track for the first time my best 60 foot was like 2.3. I averaged 2.4-.5, granted I did get the car 3 days before that and have only been driving stick since I got it. The best thing that will help your times right now is experience, just get the hang of how your car handles.

With traction issue like that I had the best luck @ 1500rpm - idle

Speed wise you seem to be ok, what's mods do you have?

To help with 60' start with suspension mods btw. It's all good because I'm not a great driver either lol. I usually get 2.1 60's when my car is easily capable of 1.9-1.8 even on street tires

In my exp the big was easier to overcome then the spinning.. My exp was with my old 95GTS, my times were consistently lower with slight big vs some spinning.

Make sure you're easing into the clutch, don't dump it. It's hard on the clutch but will get you better 60's

Right on! Cause when I spun my buddy just flew by in his 5.0 and then he posted it and all his friends were like poor 4.6...but I have a video of him missing 2nd and I got on his *** cause it looked like I torn him up!! Hahaha

See and I was just kinda scared to do that cause one I know it's hard on the clutch and two I wasn't quite sure how to do it right as far as kinda slipping it

What are you mods in detail? at 340 WHP, 4.10s and manual I get 1.812 60' times on nitto 555 275 tires. Takes TONS of practice and patience hehe.

MPH is what we need to determine how fast yo COULD go. And also, where do you shift, like what RPM?

With his mods, speed is still down, especially in the 8th.

My car with same mods.

Shifting too low? Shifting too slow? Heavy wheels? What tune are you running? 87 or 93 race?

Record yourself shifting. Slamming doesn't mean fast. Might just SEEMS fast. Get a Dino sheet and the tuner can see any issue in the tune. Whose tune are you using?

Bad driving for a time? Sure, for a trap? harder to do. Get a fresh bama tune. I use bama and I have nothing bad to say.
