Preloading will bring that 60 foot right down basically line it up after you light the second bulb. Grab the ebrake pull it up about 3/4 the way up holding in the release button, so it doesn't get stuck up. Bring the rpm's up I usally launch around 5800 on slicks (try different rpms for your set up) QUICK TIP: Usally its best to launch around the same rpm you have the highest whp on a dyno run. Then once you have the rpms up start releasing the clutch SLOWLY almost till its fully disengaged BUT the car won't move or red light since your still holding up the ebrake and then when u see green drop the ebrake let go of the clutch completly and off you go. Keep in mind you only have a split second to do all this. So practice makes perfect Good luck the best 60 foot i've had is 1.73 with consistant 1.8's

Venom thats an awsome time for street tires preloading is the best way to go add 2step to the mix and its game over and easiest on your transmission most of the time. Good luch and have fun.

what psi is in the tires? 2.2 is pretty high for slicks.. i ran a 2.146 on street tires at 30psi with an open diff and spinning a lot.. :/

i need some slicks.. i wanna get under 13 in the 1/4! lol
