So I'm curious to the best 60' times you all have gotten out of a stock TC?
My PB is 1.937 w/ 3.06 gears and 27" MT Drag Radials.
Any tips or tricks would be apprecaited.
The Old: Stock 5.7 Bottom End | Lead Foot | 11.861 @ 112.76 1.63 60'
The New: Forged Arrington 6.1 | MMPG Top End | Paramount Drivetrain | 11.67
i had 1.85's at atco in spring with the super stock setup
2.82 gears, 275/40/17" drag radials.
Street set up on 20's
1.926 60ft @106.30mph in 13.079 secs
1.59 on street tires
here's some for comparison.
So here is how I'm launching:
very light load on the TC (1000 RPMish)
stomping to go
when I load it harder I spin.
I've read Erik's how to so many times I think I could recite it.
The one area of differnce is letting off the brake and then hitting the trottle. I haven't had much success with that technique.
Lisa did a 1.89 on all season radials and 1.68 on 245 Mickey D/R's in the Chally with stock 5.7 and stock converter.
The other thing I noticed was your burnout. It looks cool but might be a little excessive!! I've seen and heard of guys spinning big time with DRs after a huge burnout. If you had slicks that would be a different story.
Personal Best: coming soon!!
Get er done buddy, and if I'm at the track you're welcome to try my shorter tires. That might be the tenth or two you need.

One dumb, noob question... Jim mentioned my big burnouts...
I have trouble sometimes getting both of my tires to spin, so I have to do another one.
Do you all start your burnouts in the waterbox?
Not in the "deep" water but just the wet part, or do you get them wet and then pull forward to the dry track?
Thanks everyone, I really appreciate your input.
start the burnout on the concrete (if your track has it), but NOT in the water.
