If you are not sure about the tires, then that would be the first thing to look at. With your 60 ft. times that inconsistant, it would be a good place to start.

i agree with ts, thats a fairly big swing between runs if all else is equal. in other words, no chassis adjustment between rounds.

It may take a few run to wake up the compound on those mickeys, but after that, i think you will be happy, what rear shocks are you running?

You can get more hit by raising the top bar a hole, i was on the bumper because the CG was off so bad on my 4 link. Haven't been out since the change (dropped it 2 holes) and scaled the car, put 30lbs right side, but maybe i'll find out friday nite T&T if it don't rain, been rained out for 1 1/2 month, we only race and T&T every 2 weeks.

Zip.

how many clicks do you have in compression, stiffer compression and softer extension, will get you more hit.

Zip, I wonder if this is the difference in the door car vs dragster, but we've lowered the top bar *front* holes to get more hit, shorter IC. Must be it is different with a door car, was thinking this would go the same for all 4 links as they are the same concept. Just wondering here thanks for the info
