Well took the supra to the track. I have about 700 miles on the new setup and thought it was time to get a idea.

First pass I launched at 4000rpm and almost right away it drove through the clutch. 2.1 60ft but would not hold any gear.
Went back and let the clutch cool.
second pass same thing.
Finally decided not to worry about the 60ft and just see if I can make a full pass.
Rolled out in first (2.56 60ft) Ran a [email protected]

I was running 12psi pump gas on drag radials. I have a 6 puck feramic clutch disk with stock pressure plate.

All in all I am happy. With a 1.9 60ft that puts me well in the mid 12's. So I just need to get a grip on the clutch issue. Any suggestions?

I will have a 50hp nitrous shot for launching and run 18psi next time.

it is for sure. I always planned on going that route with the car. I however thought I would get it going first and enjoy the car while scraping together the kit. I however called ATI today for a qoute on trans and adaptors!
