We use those a lot in the Bomber class in Circle track. Some guys don't get all the slag out and end up 'locking' EVERYthing them up when you are right behind 'em !

I'd think it'd be a questionable method in high HP drag racing though.

The results.... put in travel stop to even back out LF RF, Raised air to 10 on both rear, lowered launch from 4000 to 3000, bumped up shift rpm (I had this a little conservative since it was a new motor) No pull to left all night and actually ran a little quicker. No big wheel stands but ran within about a .05 window most of the night. I think it actually got off the line a tad quicker since I got the red a couple of times. I'll go with it for now. Thanks!

totally agree, I'm planning on a 9 with adjustable ladders vs the welded ones in the off season. This was in it when I got it. After doing a motor and a new tci glide I wanted to get some racing in if possible this season since the cash was gone and re do rear later. :wink:
