Here is a video of my car leaving the line w/150 shot 60' was 1.08. After watching this video over and over I'm wondering if there is still a lot more to gain in the 60'. Looks to me like the tire is the only thing squatting down to a point the wheelie bars hit. Doesn't seem to be lifting the nose of the car at all just pushing strait forward. If you look real close you will notice the ripple in the tire is at the at the rear side of the tire and not in the center of the axel housing. With all this said next time out I plan on hitting the car with 300 off of the trans brake w/ about 2000 hp within the first 8/10 of a second from TB release. I need to get more seat time for sure but my goal is to get a .99 sixty footer pr better

I think you have more. You rear looked good. no squat / no rise. Each power level and traction, likes it's own center of gravity. While this COG may be a little low and or forward for this power value it very well could be closer for more power. You are correct, you could use a little more weight transfer on these vids. But as weight transfer is linked to COG and traction and power level it may change enough with more power as more likes lower and forward COG. It then gets to a point you throw the power away with clutch or converter or de tuning because there just isn't enough traction. Where you are it's a balancing act. Too much power you get spin. to high a COG you slow wheel speed and get tire shake, then add power and sometimes get too much transfer. the trick is to balance the three out. Each one is different.
