Re: First time on the drag strip
Good results and you can practice to improve.
More soeed is needed to heat tires, 2nd gear would be good, 3rd maybe.
The idea is to bring up the rpm's to an acceptable value, say 4K and hold.
When engine loads up, rpm lowers, release. clean tires, proceed to stage.
Road race tires are noit the best drag tires, but will work.
Pick a spot on the tree to go to reduce reaction time.
Learn the speed shift - adjust clutch or add a clutch stop just enough to release power for gear change to next gear.
Did I mention Practice?
