not sure about gt-s, but in my gt 2.5k with a new set of tread works well, one thing you dont wanna do is give too little power and bog for a second. at least if u screech tires at least ull still be moving forward...

rpm's are not called k
Right, but I am sure he was just meaning what thousand, which yes, still sounds a bit awkward.

My first timed 1/4 in my gts I launched at 5500k rpm or so and trust me that doesnt work I got 18 sec on that run:chuckles: . next time around I launched at 3k rpm and got a 15.9. I just takes a while to get the right launch but higher rpm's are not the answer.

Fuzion zri's. I like them. My problem was shlty launching :thumbup: + it was my first time at the track. I should be low 15's high 14's with a little more practice.

High RPM yield Mike 00SilverGTS6Speed 2.1 and 2.0's. It is all technique.

IMO, start firstly at 5k and move up or down depending of the traction u have. Thats if u drop and floor when you got sufficient traction. Sometimes, floor slowly, it depends of the track ... I fyou slip, you would usually launch higher ...
