ummm, you just started a thread.. Need help with my Launch.Soccer69er said:15 x 6.5 wheels
24.5 x 8.5 x 15 M&H Slicks
4000 rpms Launch
Bob you are right he was babying that car out of the hole. Thats why I was able to out 60ft him by so much. They need to launch at a much higher rpm.warriorbob said:thats interesting everyone is launching at 3500 to 4000 rpm and stephan is launching the lightweight stage 3 car at 2000 on slicks and running 11.70's.....i saw him do it..........we all may want to try different rpm's to launch at to see where we hook the best
kingj07 said:lightweight = easier to lose traction. takes less powa to get 'er movin'.
i really dunno, tho. ive never been on slicks.
warriorbob said:i was very surprised he was only launching at 2 grand i would think with the slicks he was bogging the motor down at that low of an rpm.......from what i have been told you need wheel speed to launch a FWD car good
