I need some and I want to keep weight as low as possible.
The wheels were bassett ultra lites

weight that night should have been right at 2500 with me in it. the launch control you heard was the mr2 next to me, you can hear me kick the revs up like right as im about to start letting out the clutch, i always take my foot off the gas when shifting.

Yea,I saw how your 60' was low as well. I guess the slicks make a huge difference.everyone with the proteges are scared to run slicks or launch hard because of our glass trannies

Slicks are actually better then drag radials, The sidewall of a slicks gives and wrinkle so it takes most of the shock and strain off the drivetrain. I daily drive on drag radials and would never attempt to launch hard on them cause it would brake an axle
