Sooooo close. And given this was on very old dusty blacktop in 45 degree weather on Summer only tires and full tire pressure I'm going to call this a win given my latest modifications. I tried launching soft, hard and inbetween. 60fts tell the tale. Wheel spin is just too easy and lots more wheel spin in 2nd AND 3rd. I'll never know how guys ever got these cars into the 12s bone stock and on street tires.
I could smell the clutch a bit when I got home but it performed beautifully (Monster Stage II.)
