Missing 75lbs and shifting faster, I guess. I thought I shifted fast, but I guess not.

One if the launching things he said was he was slipping the clutch instead of my dumping the clutch.

One reason he was slipping the clutch was to keep the rpm's up. LS1's are notorious for bogging off the line, especially if they dead hook.....it's weird. lol With him slipping the clutch though, he was keeping the rpm's up, and therefor keeping the car in it's powerband throughout the 60'. ;)

Nice times and nice mph! :)

I think alot of mine is in my burnout, :( I was under the impression that ET streets like a decent burnout, but after a little more reading, I've found they like little or no burnout at all. So, next season, I'll try just a rolling burnout and see what happens, well that and slipping the clutch.
