I was definitely out of practice, last night started off HORRIBLE! I think I completely forgot how to launch cause my first three runs were complete garbage. They were all 14.9 and slower with 2.7 60' and slower! I thought something was wrong with the car for a minute cause I was redlining the hell out of the launch without trying and not going anywhere, almost felt like the clutch wasnt there, then I'd hit 2nd and be gone. I don't know what was happening but I took a long break after the third pass cause I was pissed. Then one of my friends got there and I told him what was going on, and he was tripping out too. After a while I went back at it and had to collect myself and finally started getting it right. 4th pass was a 14.1 @ 103, after that I hit the 13.6! And hot lapped one last pass in celebration. Called it a night after that, I was so happy I got it togetherin the end.

Congrats, BB! Very nice. Launching a six speed with 3.92 gears and a lot of torque is no small thing...
