First time dragging the Camaro

So I finally after so long wanting too, I took the Camaro to the dragstrip. Its was a 1/8 mile strip. I wouldn't say it was horribly prepared, but it wasn't bad. I didn't go there expecting awesome results. I am running on damn near bald ass MPSS and I couldn't keep traction worth a damn. I literally had to let off the pedal during my runs because my ass end would start fish tailing. My best run was a 9.2...so crap. Lol. I get my drag radials tomorrow and hope to get back to the track next weekend. Oh and not my first time with drag racing, just a first with this Camaro.

I know!! Omg it was horrible. I couldn't hold any traction through second gear. I can't wait to run with the drag tires.

You might get into the low 8s with better rubber.

I have gotten new rubber. That and a alignment drop me 2 tenths a second. I still need some more seat time. I don't get much, only dragged the camaro twice now. In working on my launches so I can drop my 60. Finding the right RPM and slipping the clutch is proving difficult. Plus I dont want to burn up my stock clutch too quickly lol. I know I can get into the low 8s. I just need more driver mod. I'm getting there.

I also have some drag radials. Plan on using in the future. Their used, but have some life left. I wanna get faster on street tires before I use the drags.
