5TWENTY told me he launches at redline, with his Mickey Thompson drag slicks so if our local track doesn't get sold to the indian reservation, next year, I will buy those. His 60 foot times are 75% of mine. What that means is get bettter tires and you will launch better. Nitto555s are great, I hear but they don't last long.

Here's a video of me... uh... in Mexico... on and island.... where there are no traffic laws. Anyway, I launched at 2200, I think.

Remember Mustangs are famous for power. Not traction
I have 3.55s. So what exactly did you do with the clutch pedal there - that is my main issue.
