    Best was a 15.6 @87. With a 2.3 60ft

    Track prep was good. It didn't feel like i was spinning at all.

    Don't know if it's the high elavation maybe?

    What's the stock stall on these cars. I was able to hold mine around 2800 to 3000 rpms.

    At nearly a mile above sea level that plays a huge roll in how quick or slow it is. Do you know what the DA was?

    If that was higher, then it would make things worse.

    2.3 60 foot hurts too, I'm sure it was spinning some or you were extra gentle for the first 100 feet to not blow the tires off.

    I don't know the exact stall number but I could hold my old car just above 2,000rpm.

    time for a pulley drop. you got the pcm tuned yet? that can also help out.

    dont feel bad, at fuking sea level i could only get a 2.2 60', but i was also spinning if i nailed it off the line. best run so far was a 14.3 at 97 mph.

    i got a new tranny and meth now, so smaller pulley and more timing then the last time. and its getting cooler here . i need to get out there already.

    No tune yet but ordered a 3.5 pulley. I get zero kr now so let's see how it is with a pulley.

    Tune is next on the list
