Nope no slicks... On a set of yokahamas. I've been working on my take off for about a year now and it was hard at first... I couldn't find a sutable RPM to launch from with out horrible wheel spin. Every time I took off I'd hit a 2.3-2.4 in the 60ft. So I started screwing around with different techniques... I learned to feather the clutch just a bit and the car will just squirt its way to a low 60ft time. I couldn't have worked it out with out the Vector though. I think it was worth the 150 I spent.
