here's my advice... heat the tires a little. Do a small burnout (2-3 seconds). Don't worry too much about tire pressures with street radials. The trick is to get the car moving, then punch it. Bring tach to 2,000 rpms and when last yellow hits, EASE clutch out. As soon as the car starts to move, floor it and dump it. **** at 5,700, no higher. that should help. Oh yeah, get a timing adjuster.
