first 1/4 trip



First time to the drag strip and ran 12.31. will get time slip up later. MPH was lower than i thought it should be at 114-115. Had a blast. cant wait to do it again. Still learning to launch the stick. All my old cars that I took to the drag strip were auto's. launch control seemed to help me alot. Missed a gear a couple times I will just have to go out and practice more. now I need a pulley and tune to get it in 11's :-)

I haven't run 1/4 yet, but I know what you mean about working on launches and missing a gear. Practice practice practice, but I get to go to an 1/8th mile almost every week, so hopefully I can nail down my fundamentals there and then step up. It's an hour and a half to the nearest 1/4, but it'll be worth it, it'll be a good time
