Couldnt have said it better myselfRogue said:The BEST way is an LSD and some slicks. If your looking at doing it on street tires, this is the advice I got from Merc (one of the best street tire launchers I've seen/heard of).
1) Lower front tire pressure to about 22-24 (play with this)
2) Raise rear tire pressure to max (approx 40lb psi)
3) Avoid the water box but do a quick stab of the throttle to shock the tires loose and scrub the tires clean.
4) Brake stand the car to about 1500 rpm (play with this).
5) Let off the brake and roll into the throttle so that you are WOT over the period of a about one second.
I have been racing my GTP since I bought it with 44,000 miles on it and now I have 110,000. I have been using QTP's mounted on stock 16" torque stars since the car had 95,000 on it and have made approximately 200 1/8th mile runs with no problems for the stock tranny. I do have a tranny cooler and an intense shift kit. Brought my 60 foot times from 1.98-2.03 to 1.88-1.93.PGA2B said:So what about using Hoosier QTP's and a completely STOCK tranny? I only go to the track a couple times a year and don't do burnouts unless I'm at the track. Am I gonna shell the tranny? The car has 68,000 on it.
might try to rev to 3k and see if my car moves or atleast until I feel my car moving foward.Mapex said:i've gotten good results with this, and i've got a stock tranny and street tires. Lower front tire pressure to 20 psi, avoid water box, quick spin of tires for a sec to knock debris loose. Mash the brake and rev to 3k let off break on 2nd yellow and once you hook slam the gas. I've gotten a 13.7 with a 1.89 60' with that and it works great for me. Although some say my car is a freak since i can rev that high
Agreed you cannot launch harldy any modded gtp that way. You'll just sit and spin. The most we've ever been able to do is about 2200. We have to launch as low as 1600 depending on trap prep.mybluegtp said:might try to rev to 3k and see if my car moves or atleast until I feel my car moving foward.
are you running on a slick, because i consider my car pretty highly modded, and I stall to 3000-3100 and drop the pedal to the floor, no hesitation. 1.71 60' times every single pass.spd98 said:Agreed you cannot launch harldy any modded gtp that way.
