What Moron misses...

Post by 6(sic)6 » Sat Aug 02, 2008 3:15 pm

2nd fucken gear? lol I somehow managed to. It cost me to. I was eliminated and only ran a 15.4 from the mishap It was a great launch. I "think" it could have been a high 13 sec run if I didnt screw up.

I had a bad night at the track. Could only do a 14.4 @96. Was very hot and 60ft times sucked.....

What were your 60' times?

Don't feel bad, I've managed to miss 2nd gear twice in a row, and run an 18.7 in a car that later on ran a 16.3.

2.166 was the best on. I was running a bf g-force drag radial. I have slicks for test-n-tunes that I havent used yet.

Dang, that's still pretty decent, but I guess launching with near instant boost is kinda hard.

Hahha, I've missed gears before, you wont blow up. As long as you have a rev-limiter you're fine.
