lsd plus a better clutch, it slips a good bit from 2nd to 3rd and 3rd to 4th




here is a short video of my best 1/8th mile run vs a red bentley lol recording started a little late though, by the way listen closely to what the guy on the pa system says lol. by the way i had a .561 r/t being a big part of why i started a decent amout behind, guess i was sleeping...

dude thats kinda sad tho. some kid got killed in a street racing accident after leaving the track that night. good times tho! bump it up to a 75 shot and get a tune! or just get a tune and keep it on 50. either way you will improve your times tremendously. and what gearing does your car have? u have 4.06 final drive mod? looking at your mph in the 1/8th your car really digs hard in 3rd. i was running mph very close to that on a 65 shot.
