You have to feel it out and get accustomed to it. Great job!

Good for you for trying with it, like you said, better on the strip no matter who wins! Never on the street, to many can lose there. Again, good for you for giving it a shot and good luck next time back on the strip

i know what my limits are in my car. i know when i should stop. it's the only way i will race my car.i've raced my cars maybe twice on the street i'd rather take it to the track. i'll have to go with the one foot method this time instead of tring to load the back end. it worked on the t/a should work for the gto.

I have been fighting traction for years, I now have to retrain myself not to start at lower RPM for better times.
