First time out at the strip

Well that was a humbling experience! Went out to Midnight Mayhem in Las Vegas last night with my buddy and his S4. On the first pass I was so nervous that I don't even remember what I launched at. My buddy's shift knob came off in his hand on the 2nd gear shift lol. 2nd pass I launched at 3k and had really bad wheel hop. Talk about violent. He got the jump on me but I caught him in the end. 3rd pass I launched at 2k but didn't roll into the throttle and just spun the wheels through first. My best pass was my first...go figure. Best I could do was a 14.1. I really need some practice! My 60's are kind of embarrassing

I am car 119









1st run:



2nd run:
