FiFoci I had my stock zx3 to 15.6 @ 86(with drag radials 2.2 60ft)
When i launch i hold my ebrake and slip the clutch so everything is preloaded then when the light is on the last amber drop the ebrake slip out of the clutch fully and roll into the gas at the same time. as far as what rpm to slip u have to figure that part out ur self. u dont want to roast the tires but u dont want to bog either. and dont to crazy burnouts either. just a quick spin to clean the tires (if u run street tires).
Also depends alot on where the track is and weather.

silfocus84 i'd just do what you said, practice the launches...safely obviously... you'll get yourself dialed in.

02_svt_guy something is def wrong. expecially with a 75shot your trap speed should be alot higher then 6mph over n/a.

I would say N/A with ur mods you should be good for ATLEAST a low to mid 15sec pass.

Are you launching at 3k? Trac off? do you have 300lbs of stereo equipment? is ur clutch grabbing? man i feel for u something is def up.

B3NN3TT The first half of the track is killing you. Your 8th should be less than 10 easily. Your 60 should be less than 2.4.

Are you shifting at redline?

zinsavage123 yeah something is up I ran a 17.6 with my 01 auto zx3. Those heavy ass eap's aint helping trust me I know I have em on mine when I went too. But they look to nice to take off just to get a few extra tenths ya know.
