Default Drag Racing, My First Time

A bunch of friends and I are heading down to the cecil county drag strip this saturday, this will be my first time racing at the track so im a bit nervous. i probably wont have any pics though except for the pic of my time slip of me running like a 17.7. Ive been practicing my launch at lights, anyway i hope this goes well w/o me looking stupid.

Mine launched pretty good at about 2500 rpm. Use the e-brake for the burn-out. (hold the button down with your thumb and modulate the brakes with the lever)

That sux... I know I'm wanting to take mine to the track, but I'll prolly wait til the short throw comes out. I'd also like to get 17 X 8 wheels and tires instead of the 18 X 7's that are on there now, more grip. CAI and full turboback, hopefully downpipe and highflow cat, the whole shebang - see how fast this puppy can crawl.
