You should run a few test and tune nights to get used to your car. Then, BRACKET RACING! You will never go back to "normal" runs. Glad to see another member on a drag track, if you need or want pointers, feel free. My best R/T is .008 to date and runs below....

Nice vid. Keep practicing and i'm sure you'll hit 15's. I've only done it once back when i was stock and ran a 15.95 in atlanta, but i haven't been back much since then.
