Going to 1/8 mile this weekend any suggestions

Well like said gunna take my ss manual to the strip this weekend , im not a seasoned manual driver but i can make it launch pretty good from lights etc,

couple things

1. i have ran a tree a few times in pickups and grand national, all autos of course

2. i rev to about 2500 slowly let out clutch and punch it , does that sound about right?

3. what about a burnout to warm up the tires ? same thing rev it up let out the clutch once start spinning grab the break and keep the gas going?

any tips are appreciated

what ya think i should run?

Hey man I would honestly PM forum member NineBall he as the quickest time on the 1/4 so I am sure he will more than willingly share some of his best practices with the SS LS3!


Happy Hunting
