What RPM are you launching at? Bog? Spin?
Slip or dump style clutch action?
When you say bad launch, what numbers? Please post the
whole time slip.
Thanks

***I assume that 2.43 60' time is due to a bad bog
instead of spinning tires or clutch. I launch at 48-5200
RPM(Whatever it takes to get some tire spin on a given
track). A bog will hurt your mph a little but you pulled
22.4mph in 4.40 seconds for the second half of the race.
How much boost, what octane fuel were you running. You
may not be getting full timing. That 88.34 mph eighth should
have ended up at 113+ mph trap with your mods. Just
pratice launching until you find the sweet spot for the
car/clutch. That 1/8th trap with a bad bog shows your car
can make serious power. Are you running it at the ''World Cup"
race at MIR Sunay?
