Any idea what I should launch at? I was launching at about 3k and would let out the clutch not dump it.

I'm still running stock tires.

EDIT: I had the windows up but from what I could tell I would slightly spin off the line and chirp going into 2nd.

Yeah. I was hoping to break into the 9's but was unable to.

I tried everything I could think of but nothing helped.

Yeah. I definatly got my moneys worth. I wasn't really trying for best times because I knew I wasn't going to get below 10.3 unless I let the engine/tires cool I was just trying to getting as much practice as possible on my launches.
