I suppose that just comes with experience, which i don't have.
I was afraid of sitting there spinning too, that'* why my first reaction was the worst, and why that time was the slowest, I coulda given it a lot more that time, but didn't cause I had NO idea what was going to happen.

These runs were all in Perform Shift on; Traction off; Perform Ride on, all in the highest gear letting the car do all the work. The next time I go out I will give shifting it myself a shot to see if that makes a diff.

As for starting off the line, most of the times I didn't load the brakes as the yellows came down. I DID load the brakes for my 15.197 time, but only to about 2200RPM.

The second I saw that LAST yellow. I slammed my foot on that gas and ripped my foot off the brake. With all that weight on top of the drive wheels, there was next to no spin. So trying to remove this minor spin would only result in damaging your time.

As I drove around the wet box, just beside it I would floor it and spin the wheels about 3 or 4 times. Hell if it didn't do anything usefull, it was sure fun. Ensure you do not get your tires wet on the way up though! This will cause serious spin unless you get it off before you run.

Hope this all helps!

I wanna break 15 so bad now! lol

Blk_Bonne - Thanks!
zzzzzeke - Thanks also! Exhaust before chip eh?

The whole day the engine temp never went more than a hair over 90C.
I'm mentally challenged, I forgot to say this post was in regards to "hot lapping" DUH!

ya exhaust SOUNDS good, literally!!
some members have gone with magnaflow, dynamax,and flowmaster to name a few
they don't make a direct performance replacement for bonnes so u need a camaro muffler. ssei95 has a pretty in-depth exhaust system. i'd hit him up for some tips
or hector 99bonnevilleSE (ADTR man)

Yeah, I'm with zzzzeeke ..one of my first performance mods with be some exhaust for a V8 camaro..but i heard with all that outflow i will lose some of my HP from my */C ..so i'll imediately get a smaller pulley system to bring it back and add some way beyond what i started with. I think i could safely say an L67 would be around 260-5 Horsepower after those 2 mods + K&N air filter. ..which is a pretty good lookin number, hehe.
