Spinning off of the line - need advice, QUICK MUSTANG
I brought my Stang to the track for the first time this past weekend and I was able to run it three times. In short, here were the results:
Run 1: 11.3 @ 130MPH with a 2.2 60' time 4000rpm launch on transbrake
Run 2: 11.0 @ 131MPH with a 2.0 60' time 4000rpm launch on transbrake
Run 3: 10.6 @ 132MPH with a 1.8 60' time 4600rpm launch on transbrake
The MPH brings the car down to a very low 10 second, or even high 9 second ET, but my problem is the launch. I know it takes a lot of practice to control a race car, but it also takes research, and asking for advice and assistance, so here i am. :-)
I have 14lbs of tire pressure. The tires are Hoosier 28x10 slicks. The wheel spins about 1" off (or around) the tire, so I know i need to drill the wheels and get tubes, thats a given.
I do not have video of the car and I was very nervous, so to ask me what I felt would be useless right now.
I am looking for practical advice that I can use at a test-n-tune night at Island Dragway here in beautiful northern NJ.
Thanks in advance guys and gals... I am looking forward to reading the feedback and replies.
