fast_ryda 4500...i get wheel spin. I do around 3000rpm gets the job done well

dirtbrown its a pain to launch these things....I have to launch really high like 4500.....

some people say its way too high...but they obviously dont have to deal with the long 1st gear we have.

9.770 is my fastest time.

I'm thinking about taking my newly purchased SVT to the 1/8th mile drags tonight. What's the best launch RPM?
