Ran the goat on weds night

Well apparently it was a big mistake to try to run the car with all season street tires! My best run of the night was done starting in 2nd gear(no joke), I ran a [email protected] with a horrible 2.2 60ft. Can't wait to see what the car can do with a set of drag radials! The other runs were [email protected], the car absolutely will not hook in 1st or 2nd gear. I have been drag racing for many years and never had this kind of problem. What setups do you guys reccomend for getting a better launch??

Mods are Magnacharger running 8.5lbs, long tube headers w/o cats, bassani cat-back, 160 t-stat, custom air intake located in drivers fender well behind fog light, spec stage 3+ clutch, and dynotuned making 532whp, 568wtq. I need to do suspension work now. I would like to get some input on what works best with GTO's for drag racing.

Solid rear axle with 4.11 gears and 12" DOT slicks. Nice setup and great numbers! The hp numbers sound a bit high though from what I've seen posted up by other Maggie users at those pressure. Stock heads and cam?

I'm only joking about the solid axle, though there is a few running around with that mod. Out of my league and experience, but I know the rule thats spouted around here is that at your hp numbers you need a one piece drive shaft ($800), and different stub axles ($800 also I believe). Again, nice setup and times for all season tires! low 12's on all seasons in a rear drive car... talk about potential!

Street tires and a cool or poorly prepped track - really nothing you can do. Outstanding car and power though. Must be nice!

Nice trap speed. Cars making alot of power. I thought I was the only one using a second gear launch for the street meats.
