how much power are you putting down?

which 17 or 18" mt drag radial are you running?

how much pressure works the best for you?

how big/long of a burn out do you do?

what's your average and best 60'?

thanks guy

i switched to an auto and prostars
but I did have 17" drag radials and a tko at one point
i ran about 12psi, and did a nice smokey burnout every time
Best 60 was a 1.48 and average was 1.55 or so

wow 1.48s/1.55s are sick numbers man

how did you launch?
would hold it around 5k and slip the clutch pretty hard
I found the key is to keep the revs up and modulate the clutch as opposed to modulating the throttle.
Its probably pretty hard on the clutch but you gotta pay to play I suppose

had it for about a year...
truthfully when I blew the last set of headgaskets the long tube headers gave me such a pain in the ass that I swore I would never deal with them again.. I sold them and the blower and bought a turbo

Depends, it has its plus's and minus's.
The turbo setup has little things that irritate me, but the ET is better with it so I dont know, one thing I do know is being able to adjust the boost easily is pretty nice

Rich Gill... did you put the tires into the water during the burnout or was it 100% dry

I was making roughly 780rwhp in my 03 Cobra w/ the IRS and had 1.56 to 1.57 60fts with 275/40/17 MT's. I ran them at 15psi and did a short burnout. Thru the water, 2nd gear burnout.
