Ran a few 1/8 races tonight

So tonights little experiment of a softer launch (2000-2500RPM) didnt really go so well. My 60' times sucked and so did my 1/8 times, but my trap speeds were pretty good. I was trapping 3-4mph higher than the V8s running mid 9s with low 2s in their 60'. So bottom line is, I need stickier tires and better launches. Will be working on that next week when I go back. I got 3 runs in. First was a no go because I left before the green, didnt even get a time. 2nd run was my best, it was...

60' 2.812
330 6.892
1/8 10.053
MPH 79.33

3rd run, I lost traction in 2nd and slid a bit when I gave it full throttle

60' 2.790
330 7.186
1/8 10.412
MPH 78.13

My car was #4765

Run 2

Run 3
