Explain your burn out procedure, tire pressure, launch RPM, and are you spinning or bogging?
I do about a 5-6 second burnout, enough to start seeing a little bit of smoke, but not much. Then I just let off the brake and come out of it. As soon as they catch, I put in the clutch, brake, and stage. I could probably burn out a little bit longer.
I've been leaving around 3 grand, but probably not spinning. That's probably my problem, I'm probalby bogging but it is hard to tell.
I have been running 15 psi in them. Since my car is set up more for road racing, I have big brakes and cannot fit 15 inch wheels on it. So I am running the 26x10.5 16's. That probably hurts a little bit with the lower sidewall, but I'm stuck with that size tire.
I guess with over 500 hp I'm concerned that I will get too much wheelspin if I leave at 5000 rpm, but with both of you dump it, that's what I'll try. If I get a little bit too much wheelspin, then I can just adjust the rpm and try again.
Any guesses on what rpm with around 440 rwhp and 422 rwtq? I know I'll figure it out eventually, but I'm hoping to get somewhat close and adjust from there.
Looking forward to that first whiplash!!!
Practice, practice, practice...
Thanks to both of you for your advice.
