I had alot of practice. I would launch at 4500 rpm the first time to the track. This time I launched at 4000 rpm to 3800 rpm and I lowered the tires down to about 25 psi and then 20 psi whiched helped out. The first run I made was nothing but wheel spin I did'nt even move much off the line. Just practice your launch try slipping the clutch more maybe. It helped alot for me. So far the CF clutch has held up wonderfully. Though I wish I had enough money to have had a lighter flywheel when replacing all that stuff. ( I put the clutch in when swapping the motors out). But its definatly your 60' time could be better. MY best was 2.2-- somthin though that run was one of the slower though I don't know why.

more post please let me know what ya'll think and if any way to make it better?

also I don't have a cat I have the 4-2-1 OBX headers. That might make for a tenth or two.
I started out with nothing and I still have most of it left
