Unless you have your motor mounts done, I wouldn't advice dumping it from anything above 5k. Dump it from like 3.5-4k and give it hell!!!

I have the rex inserts for the topper and lower mounts and they work just fine launching at a high rpm.

That's how I managed a best 60' of 1.813

I'm trying to get someone to host the slip.

Yeah but if he has NO motor mount work, then he could possibly tear them up with a redline launch...

So either do your motor mounts or launch softer...

I definitely agree with you blackdragon...there is no way in hell I would launch that hard without solid-filled motor mounts or solid inserts.

IMHO I wouldn't run slicks unless I had one or the other.

Yeah, there's alot of us crazy mo' fo's here in Texas. By the way one of our friends borrowed our slicks to make a pass in his SRT and he managed to cut a 1.7XX and ran a 13.000@104. He told us after his run he didn't rev it to redline, but of course he has a little bit more modifications than we do. I was damn impressed it being his first time using slicks and all.

Yes, I want a MOPAR TATOO also!

Yesterday, (at Hallsville) I pulled a 13.684 at 103.63 and launched at 800rpm. I got a 60ft of 2.163. It was the last run of the day and I was having problems getting the tires to heat up (burn out)! I tried in 2nd and was just glad to get smoke. I wasn't even thinking about the run.

BTW, I was only pushing 13 psi.

Did you guys finally get a boost controller, or do you still think Stage 1 psi is enough?

23x7.5x15"

Launched at 5,000rpm

Not under boost when i launched.

Did not spin grabbed HARD and bogged a little for maybe 1/2 a second.

Forgot to shift at end of track hence the 13.000 @ 102. Oh it was a 12sec pass, but i f---ed it up. Im still pissed about that. My 22"ers had no more than a 13.000 in em they spun and were to small. I ran 1.8's on them.

Wonder what kind of times youll get with 6" wide slicks?? Keep me posted if they dont spin at all maybe ill get a set.
