Yeah, he needed some DR's, his 60' was 2.461, you can hear his tires chirping all the way down. I can only run what is in the other lane. I was just working on my own time, launch technique and all.

I do NOT slip the clutch. I have the McLeod RXT and Aluminum flywheel. I just release quickly (no side step), then full power shift each gear at 6800 for the rest of the run.
