Oh i know man the way I look at it if the track and the car is hooking and better times can be had then lauch it harder lol but thats just mainly when I'm on slicks tho.

car hooked pretty good launch at about 3k and ride the clutch out and chirp in second. i was kinda disappointing i thought maybe mid to low 14's but oh well. so he is the question, i have $200 so do what ever i want with my car what should the next thing be to help get better a ET? i have pullies, full exhaust, and 3.73 gears. any suggestions?
Thinking outside the box here...

Use the $200 to go to the track a few more times (four more test n tune nights, $200 will cover entry fee and fuel costs)

When you get some more practice launching that car, it'll run 1.9X 60-foot times which will put you in the 13.9s with no other mods to the car.

Then when you get comfortable at that level, tire & suspension will drop the ET even more. (I can help you with that part)
