If I could launch at 5500 I am sure my time would have been a lot better then 15.7.

Airing up your tires might actually hinder wheelhop for those with that problem and while on the surface you'd think it would hurt your 60' times the wheel hop is probably slowing you down more.

The track I race at is amazing with the way they prep. Also I was never able to hook on the stock tires so that's another possibility.

Any issues with the clutch yet? Mine seems fine after the runs at the track. Was a bit worried but no weird smell or anything

My tires were at 37 psi. That is what I have them for street driving and did not change anything. And I agree wheel hop is slowing me down, the one time I had bad wheel hope I ran 16.1.

For normal driving its fine, if I power shift it then sometimes it will start to slip then catch. I cannot chirp gears haha.
