Did you run at full power or de-tuned?
No traction at all. 60ft time was 2.3 and was on 18 psi. Couldn't get full throttle till half track in 3rd.

nah, im waiting for tune atm

my mate ran his stagea and snapped the rear left driveshaft first pass
wondered what the **** was wrong, went out again and of course it didn't move so packed it up for the night..disappointing seeing as his brother in law ran 12.09@117mph on streeters and the stagea cleans it up.

they have toothpicks for driveshafts...needs a auto..lol

cheers

Id love to see this thing with some frontrunners and 15's slicks on kill one day..

Im gonna go out on 17 inch hoosier tyres next time. I could change the back brakes pretty easy but the fronts would be a pain only because I have to change the front brake master cylinder because of the caliper size difference.

if im gonna change the brakes it will only be the back ones so I can't run 15s. No point in getting front runners as I will only be using them once as I dont have a cage and will get kicked out anyway.

what i like about the night was so many first timers and proper street cars, was some good grudge matches between full streeters, something different from the pipes off/slicked up car at most meets. Few sleepers aswell, like that full stock stagea with ski racks that went 12.7@114 and steves rusty old xw with o.g flat crowsfeet paint,rusty panels, cobwebs..looked like he just pulled it out a paddock and a decent 351/tremec setup in i that went 12.00 before ..was funny as..

Yeah that's it. HDTF18 and I went in his fg xr6t ute. Had a run each. Std exhaust, sleeper spec with 300rwkw and I went 12.99 with terrible 60ft. First time I've ever gone down the strip.

Dunno about any other first timers that went out, but I can see why it's so addictive. Was a great night.

There was a lot of nice cars out there. Think they need a earlier start though so you cant get more runs in.
