The rest of my launches were absolute JUNK! Even my best wasn't very good (1.77).. I think I know what I was doing wrong.. I was hessitating too much on that initial release.. Next time I race im going to launch it like I did on my first 3 passes.. A little higher tire pressure and release around 2600rpms... I felt more comfortable doing that..

BTW.. Im hooked... Whens the next race?

Check the corvette challenge website for the schedule. I believe it's sometime in September though. Pocono on 8/21 will be right up your alley though!!!!
a 1.77 60' your 1st trip out on the DR's is pretty good! Hesitating on the release would cause you to bog, not spin though...on my last pass when I ran 12.09 I launched at 2300. You should be launching much higher than I did being you were on DR's...
