Default Weak attempt at 0-90+

On my way back to my parents' (WI) on Saturday morning I decided to measure one quick run since I had the camera handy. 80 and humid out, 2/3 tank of gas, tires at 33 psi each, left trac ON by accident , and I still need to learn how to LAUNCH this thing No KR at least.
I think it'* easily capable of lower 5'* to 60 once I get it down. Sorry for not getting a better run for you guys, but here ya go anyway!

once you change that muffler to an f-body, it should sound sweet. an outside audio clip would be nice to see if you can hear the headers with the stock muffler

I'll work on it. It'* just REALLY hard to find good places around here to film. Luckily I at least got something to show from the way home.

Looks pretty good, that 1-2 shift looks real nice Only 6k shifts? (I'm thinking 6'200- 6250rpm for my setup)

My advice for working on your launch is to do it with out the brake first, then once you have it down sit on the brakes and bring the revs up.
