This weekend I finally raced my SE-R.
Happy to say I conquered an Integra and a sooped up Stanza. (That bitch was quick)
Well, I went to race 98 Accord and unfortunately I spun my tires too much and lost by a fender. I usually rev up to 4,000 and then let go of the clutch. Is this too high of an RPM? Im pissed off I lost to that freak!! Im getting revenge this weekend!!
I have no mods and run regular tires.
Im running with the filter off this weekend though. I know I know, but its only for this one race and we dont race in a dusty area.
So anyways, any recommended RPM launches?

Damn, I wish we had a place like that. Does the noise become a problem?

LOL, removing your air filter isn't gonna do much. You should just do the famous open air-box mod. It will net you like 2hp and a nice intake growl.


BTW, 4000rpms sounds pretty much right. Maybe a little less actually.

I launch at about 2700 and I get off the line pretty well I think. The wheels spin abit until about 3000 and then they bite and then I take off.
I had heard that it was optimal to spin the wheels into your powerband, and that is just under where our starts right, about 3500?

4k is too high. Rev to about 3500 and slip the clutch. If you dump, youll still get too much wheelspin. Much lower than that and you will bog. Practice your launchiun techniques though. Eveeyr perosn has their own way. try diffrent rpm's and try slipping and dumping the cltuch. Also play wiht tire pressures. Lower the fronts to like 20 psi(much lower and the tire will come off the rim, and put the back tires up to like 50psi.

We used to have a place like that here in Brooklyn NYC called Fountain Avenue. They used to race on Saturday nights and Sunday Aftrnoons until wee in the morning. They even had a Hotdog truck come there too. Out mayor shut that place down though. There is a website about it somewhere. Check Yahoo or AltaVista and Type In Fountain Avenue. It is bound to show up.

they race out on the island too at deer park ave. That should be obvious to any locals but jsut to let u kno. I've seen like everything out there, imports, muscle cars, **** thats just plain weird.
If you want to launch harder lower your front tire pressure a little. Don't get crazy or you'll slow yourself down.

Its wild!. And the cars just line up to race!
If the cops bust us then we end our :SCOUT" to inspect other places and if no "pork chops" are there, then away we go!!!
