well done. 15.3 is good for stock.
get some MMI and you don't have to worry about the wheel hop anymore.
did you powershift or was it just granny shifting?

since I'm a noob....explain how to power shift properly...cuz I don't want to break anything....I thought power shifting was shifting without the clutch?

Wow... If you can shift without the clutch, why they even put clutch to the manual cars then. I guess because it looks better ;) . Lol

powershifting is when you don't take your foot of the gas when you shift. shifting at wide open throttle. i wouldn't suggest it unless your drag racings and trying to get some damn good times.
oh and you need to be a fast shifter (which it looks like you are) to do it, otherwise your boucing of the rev- limiter.

what was your tire psi?

very nice times, that R/T is very impressive, there is clutchless shifting... where you shift with the revs, but I'd imagine it being very ****en hard and awful for your tranny... lower your tire psi and powershift... I still have to goto the track and try that out.... first I need to get rid of these contis :eek: 2/32 in the back and like 3 or 4/32 in the front, I get no traction

lmao!
powershifting is hard on the car, but our trannies are pretty strong, so it won't do too much damage (unless you have a 02 and 3rd gear problems....) and the entire point of powershifting is that your at WOT the entire time.

I shift pretty quick....I'll have to try the powershifting next time I go to the track

quick question since i do alot of racing (but im not that fast).... from what ive heard powershifting is not as bad as ppl make it out to be and actually NOT powershifting but releasing the gas, slamming into next gear, mashing gas causing the clutch to grab hard while still spinning is MUCH worse than not letting go of the gas at all... is that true? i go to the track and DONT powershift
