    What do you mean your running in limp mode? Are you saying running off wastegate pressure? I don't understand how you are spinning all the way through 3rd gear... In the video it looked like you barely spun 2nd if at all.

    yes the N75 disconnected about the spinning it depends on what rpm I'm shifting , not all the runs on the video .

    Im not sure what you put down for power, but 770's might like some 17's on a more meaty drag radial. I understand if you don't want to run a slick to avoid breaking axels, but if you get your launch down, you will spin just enough to avoid bogging and still have good traction. Try some drag radials first, I ran NT05's on my Cobra and loved them.

    Haha if you can't get traction with Quattro, good luck with the camaro.

    Ok, it seems as if only first gear is spinning which is normal. First things first, you have to find the sweet spot to launch for your specific setup. For me on K03s it was about 3500 to 3800 rpm, wheel spin is fairly normal with street tires in first gear. Don't think that the higher the launch rpm the better, it is the opposite at times. Also, get some solid engine and transmission mounts from 034 + JHM shift package trio, because it seems as if you are granny shifting, which makes up for a lot of time. When I go to the track, I lower my tire pressure to about 25 PSI or so depending on tires. What were your 60ft times?

    I tried in range 3000-4000 rpm , I did forget lower the pressure in the tires and outside temp was about 60F , it wasn't hot enough for good traction , I do have 034 motor mounts , I do have some short shifter good speed or something like that , or you talking about linkage ? 60 ft about 1.9 , with 97 mph at the end .

    Get a real shifter like JHM. Hitting the gears right will make a world of difference in drag racing, I was beating on 11 second cars (1/4) at the 1/8th mile because of good launches on crappy tires (1.8 60") on K03s with a Giac chip. Of course this was done in 90 degree weather, so I may have had a little more traction and less lag than you.

    I think it is the tire width even in my A4 I could slide the car around with 225s on it. With 245s the car was rock solid. Get wider tires.
