Not bad, not bad. Good reaction times. What was your average reaction time for the day? I can't really speak on the SVTF cause they're not my thing but those times are pretty good for one I believe.
Pick up some good tires. what do you launch at, RPM's??

I agree the SVT is not easy to launch. feathering the clutch works the best. only way you can launch without spinning or bogging.

at least my skill level which isn't much for drag racing.

umm i launch around 4000 and i get nervous and dump my clutch like, EVERY time. hahaha. but yeah i tend to spin a little. i think id be able to run like, a 5.6ish if i didnt spin. i took out my spare tire today, so it should shave off a tiny bit. we shall see.
