If you are getting a better 60 when you don't power brake, then you are doing something wrong. How high to you bring the R's up before you launch? Are the tires spinning when you launch?

You have to bring the R's up as high as they can go without breaking the tires loose. If the tires break loose before you launch you are essentially doing a burn out and you will just fry the tires when you let off the brake.
