Default Now THIS is wheel hop.

I was having a really shitty night, I was getting 1 run in every 75 minutes at best (usually 30min MAX), so my nerves were already thin. I get up to the water box, do my thing, pre stage, then look over and notice that all of the track workers are cleaning up a mess in the other lane, so I sat for 5 minutes before they reset the tree. In the mean time, my tires got cold again, I think it was around 55* out. Nasty wheel hop on launch, but oddly enough, it was my best run of the night at [email protected], go figure.



Next week I start adding timing (Still on base MSPnP timing map), hopefully I can get those ETs down a bit more.

If I wasn't so aggrivated I would have let my foot out. I'm pretty sure thats what killed my first Torsen.

No clue on power, never dyno'd. Im at about 16psi. I was using beat RA1s (used off my friends Spec) at 25psi. 60ft was 2.0, weak I know lol.
