In all the times I've been, that was by far the worst night out.
Car performed well, as in, no issues.
I just couldn't get it off the line. It either bogged down or wheel spun off the line.
Worst run was a 15 something and I was stepping out till 3rd gear. I kept thinking, it'll straighten up, but it didn't, so I backed off and kept going in 4th.

No idea what was wrong with the my launches. With better tyres than before, I was sure I'd do better, but wasn't to be. :(

I was launching on roughly 4psi every time, but it would either bog down or wheel spin.
Anything more than 4psi and I was wheelspining on the line.
60ft times were all above 2.2 from the top of my head.
Maybe I need stickier rubber? I've got a set if xr8 rims at home that I was gonna put semis on, but really wanted an 11 as she sat. :(

I'll post up timeslips later for Lolz, but they're nothing to look at.

I think it was actually slower in mph too.

got your old time slips as well? I know the RA would really knock my times/speed around in the commodore so would be interesting to compare them

Well Jambo is this weekend so the track would/should be super preped which is strange

maybe the stickier tyres aren't actually stickier?

Dave, the track was sticky as hell... I was out there Sunday for GM Mania and it wasn't that great, but they'd obviously done some work during the week because it was bloody sticky.

You're running Federal 595's hey Ash?
