See this... http://www.gulfimagesphoto.com/txsh0.../_mg_7775.html

Thats all the front tire has to come off the ground when you figure the hydraulic clutch of a Busa out. I found that loaner Busa to be ok once I figured out the sweeet spot on the launch was about 3200, then pin the throttle and go.

Also we will be at the 1/8 mile track pretty often on Friday nights. Houston Motorsports park Beltway 8 N and Lake Houston Parkway. Feel free to join us sometimes to get that launch down and that 60' down. Perfect practice grounds.

I would think you need to be lower. On some of our 12's that are extended and straped we can pull 1.51 60's. That is if the track is hooking up.

But then again if you are ET racing it is all about being consistant not fast.
