i only go to Infineon once in a while. you don't get too many practice run there as you do at sacramento.

the only thing i like about infineon is that it's prep better. the best 60ft i've had was always at infineon.

I been to infineon about 5-6 times.
I average about 6 runs on a crowded night and 9 runs on a good night (That's considering the fact that I get eliminated during the first-second round in elimination )

How many do you get at sac?
I want to go out to sac because they have the practice lane where you can run until it closes, but it's a bit far for me.

How many do you usually get on an average night? (Do you run the elimin. lanes or free runs)

The 90 mile drive + 2 bridge toll is really the only thing deterring me away from sac raceway lol.

I don't think it's wise to feature a bad driver on your channel

^^ two tolls? where are you coming from?

you get about 5-6 practice runs on a good day. then you either stay in eliminations or keep running until they close at 10pm. i've gone like over 10 runs before and i just stop cus i didn't feel like beating on my car anymore lolz.

Ok, because I usually launch at 3k but I see all these videos of you guys launching at like 5-7k

Is it because of the slicks.

I wouldnt launch any higher than 5k rpm on street tires like the hankook v12. With slicks you can launch much higher and still get great traction.

These v12's don't give me enough traction lol. Does anyone know what tire gives a perfect balance between DD and grip.
Star specs?
R-S3?
