Finally dragging with the 555 drag radials

I never burn them out too hard. it was good the burn out area is on a slight upward slope. cant give any specific rpm launch. i mostly go by the sound of my engine. i would say i was launching at around 4k slipping in the clutch, did get some wheel spin but very control about by the throttle.
Kill list:
G6 GT....to easy

a small performance truck too dark to see the name of it

a loud ass old S-10

late model Z(big tach gauge, big wheels, all decked out, look really damn good): was thinking he was going to hand me ass so i didnt even launch hard. he pulled out alittle ahead of me and didnt go anywhere so i got on it. and reeled him in.

Saturn Red line:... he beat me ... smoked'em!!! he sleep on the light and dusted him off really bad.

Camaro SS....got smoked bad. i read what he ran way before i went thru the traps.

Prelude....right after i raced the camaro i raced him. clutch was hot and very bothered. pop out of 3rd. i let the race go.

Had an an excellent night. finally get to show off the grunt of my zetec! There was two other foci there a SVT and ST. but i didnt see them race.
