ran the 1/8th mile

so i've got a question, what do you guys launch at? i ran my truck down the 1/8th mile last friday night. She went 9.06, cant remember how fast(i dont have the time slip in front of me). I left on 10lbs and had a 60' of 1.95. Is that good? i was on Eric's Xtreme Street tune.

What do you all normally leave at? i boosted to 30lbs on the 2nd run and she wheel hopped something fierce. I didnt get a chance to try on 20lbs, but maybe next time... I thought i would at least get into the 8's... but maybe that soft launch was why.

yeah its hard to find that fine line of hopping/spinning and maximum boost you can run. i would like to see the 60' times in the 1.8 1.7 range if you can and that should pick your times up nicely. i dont know all your other stats like cclb ccsb ect tire size all that would help

I had a 1.93 60ft running launching a 25PSI with 50PSI in the tires, but I have 6 of them and I still broke them loose, so it sounds to me like your 60ft could be a tenth or two better

I'd say take her down to 25 in the tires and try 20PSI boost launch, if you hook, keep stepping it up 2 or 3 PSI until you break'em loose, yeah you times should get way better, my 60FT was with 9500lb truck

wow thats light 6.0 are so much lighter than 6.4. I would say you should see your times down in the 1.7x range if everything goes good tire pressure should help a ton.
