^^ What do you think the key things are that help you get such good 60'. You don't seem to do to long of a burn out, what gear do you use for your burn out 2nd? And what boost do you launch with? Just thought it would be cool to hear about different methods. I know for me it was a combination of motor mounts, LSD, slicks and coilovers/proper setup suspension, the right boost to lauch with and of course learning the car and finding its limits.
Nice!! Thanks for that info. Makes total sense the more tire contacting the ground the better traction and harder you can leave!! So do you think if I went to a 9" wide rim with my qtp's which are 9.5" wide I might see some gains? My current rims are between 7 or 7.5" wide, ill have to measure one again and see.
That run was a little deceptive, as it was a crap 60'. I normally do a 3rd gear burnout and get 1.5's but due to technical difficulties I had to do a 2nd gear burnout. I launch at 7500rpm with 1 bar boost. as youve put its a combination of all the things youve listed. Theres no silver bullet you have to get everything right to get good launches. The main thing that got my times down was going as wide a wheel and tyre combination as possible, so 10" rims and 10" tyres.
