First time at the track

Hey guys so recently I ran My car at San Antonio speed way. 1/4 mile, my first run ever I ran a 14.2 which was my best of five runs. My mods are off road h pipe and pype bombs and 275/40 sumitomo htr z3 tires (which I hate) i feel like my first run was good but my others were around 14.5 -14.7. My launch was ok but I think that's my problem. You guys have any tips? I kept spinning a bit launching at 2500-3000

Tires. I went to the strip on Wednesday and could not hook at all. I have Sumitomos also and was spinning into 4th. A big part of that was ****ty track prep since I so the even scratch 4th on the street. Couldn't even break under a 14.5 because of that all night.

I think I might go again this weekend and try lowering the psi in my tired. I didn't think about it the first time. Other than that I'll just need to work on my launches. And hopefully get my longtubes on soon haha

With trouble launching your biggest help will be suspension and tires.
