Good videos! Your car looks really good launching

I'm like you, not sure how much to trust my factory tach, with DR's I just rev it up around 3,000-4,000 and let it fly!

thanks..its not that i just dont trust it,its actually proven itself to go crazy on em more than a few times..im too busy buying other go fast stuff to be bothered with a new gauge though lol..i really do need to get one for racing though..maybe it'll be next..either that or a rollbar..sadly,a decent tach/shiftlight is close to the same price as the 8pt rollbars ive been looking at..

You must have a good ear to be able to bracket race, and do well, without a decent tach, let alone a shift light. Back in the old days when we didn't have shift lights I was used to shifting by the tach, but I'm spoiled now and would never want to give up the shift light. It's so easy. You see the light, you shift. It gets to be automatic. And my light is so bright you don't have to be looking at it to see it. If I forget to put the cover on it at the night races it about blinds me!

Default Shift Light

Never considered a shift light but it sounds like a good idea. Anyone have recommendations on a brand or type?

I just have an auto meter Tach and it came with the shift light. I set it up to blind the hell out of me so i remember to shift.

I know what you mean. I have the same tach and light and the light is nice and bright during the day. Once I forgot to put the cover on at the night races and when it came on it made me see spots! The wife said it lit up the whole inside of the car.

Once you use a shift light you won't want to be without one.

Default Weak night at track last Friday

Need4Speed, did you break into the 13's yet? Bet you did!

I had a frustrating setback last week, couldn't break 15.1 with poor 60 foot times again. Tried everything, but either had traction and slow times or no traction and even slower times! I did beat a bunch of Z-28's in the top end though so it was still fun.

I know- the drag radials are on the wish list, but I should still be running consistently in the 14's if I could do it once!

With the 5 speed, has anybody tried an an adjustable clutch cable or other device? Can't stand the low and firm clutch.

Or how about a little fancy work with the E-brake to help launching?

Thanks.
