auto 392 hard to launch?

Raced a guy in a stock brand new 392 three times...pulled 1.5-2 lengths off launch every time and held throughout the entire race. I was told that an auto challenger would spank me even with my mods.

Was he spinning or bogging? I think those come with all season bicycle tires out back so traction is going to be a problem.

My 6.1 spins like crazy. Definitely can't just romp on the gas. Can't imagine how bad it is in the 392. Takes a lot of grip to get that much weight moving. lol

A 392 will roast the tires to the rims without much effort.... You need a tender foot

You have a few mods into your car, it should run well. Were these passes on the street or track, if they were at the track what were your times. With my 392 I got my best times at the track leaving all the nannies on. It took me awhile to figure that out. When I tried launching without them I would spin to 2.20s 60' times and 12:90s, with nannies on I would nail 1.87-1.95 60's and 12:40s-12:50s I guess I have a heavy foot and need help
