Default Re: Re: what kind of 1/4 mile times are you guys getting

Just let your foot straight up off of it. You should not get any clutch slip. You should get some front wheelspin. Hold it WOT till 7000 and the go for second.
that's exactly how I launch. Not only do I get 1.8's but I get them consistanly. I can run 1.8's like 10 times in a row.

Also, your mph is so low because, as I guessed, you were shifting too early. Shift at redline and then tell us how you do. You should get 13.9-14.1 with your mods.
