Me and Muddflap at Louisiana Raceway in Gilliam, LA

Traction wasn't to good for me but Muddflap hooked pretty well and ran some good times. Here are a couple videos. Any feedback is appreciated.
MY best was a 12.3 with a 2.04 60 ft. against a challenger srt. Im sure muddflap will be along to post his best times and slips. I will post mine shortly
My 12 yr old son was the camera man so the videos are a little... well youll see.

I'm still pissed about the clutch cuz I feel like I could have shaved another tenth or two off if it was for it giving me fits and then get home and somehow delete all the video while trying to put them on my ipad. I was about ready to break something!!

Ill slowly get there. I might have to get Rhino to look at my clutch when I get there in a couple weeks and focus on it before tires.

Get him a tripod and have him focus on the clock at the end. He did great.
Nice runs. Looks like you had fun.

Do you have a separate clutch reservoir?
http://www.jdpmotorsports.com/manufa...o-zl1-jdpc1001

This helps tremendously and makes purging your dirty fluid easier. When your fluid is dirty your clutch sticks at the track.
http://www.rangeracceleration.com/Clutch_Care.html

If you do not have the separate reservoir then you need to bleed your brakes because your brake and clutch fluid is in the same reservoir.

Then, search the forums for the clutch slip/drag launch techniques that are on here somewhere to help with your launches. I just read them within the last couple of weeks.

The drag strip is like sniffing glue, it's cheap, it's a decent buzz, it doesn't last long and they are all the same.
Road racing is like China White Heroin, the buzz is stronger, the high lasts for hours, it's extremely addictive and they are all different.
I can't wait for my next
Track fix.

Thanks T... Ill look into those sites
I read about slipping the clutch and launching a while back. It had some good info. I feel like I was slipping the clutch and launching pretty decent but the smell of the clutch tells me I might have been slipping it a little too hard.
