Your launchs changed so your results changed.
I know, but why on my best time the speed was lower than the others???

You missed thrid so you stopped gaining speed for a moment.
Do you think that I should get into high 13´s on third run???

It would have been close. Were you shifting at the same rpm's every run?
I´m not shure, I new running at the track, I´ll try to watch on it next sunday.

I need more practice ...

with a better launch you can run 13's @ around 99-100mph.. Id guess a 13.9-13.8 @ 100mph with a 2.0 0-60ft

remember that usually, id say 95% of the time..the rule of thumb is this..

The higher your 0-60ft number the higher the trap speed(due to more tire spin)

The lower the 0-60ft time the lower the trap speed(Cause there is less tire spin)

Missing a gear can take +/- .3 - .4 of your time(sometimes more depending on your reaction)

Run #3 looked like your 13 sec pass there, until you missed that gear.

Agreed on all points! They say a .1 improvement in the 60ft will net you .15 in the 1/4 mile, but the better the 60ft, the lower the trap speed as a rule (all other things remaining constant of course).

Now I got it clear, thanks guys.

I have a question :

Some guys over here told me that is better to not release the gas pedal between shifts, it is safe for my engine and tranny???

If it is safe, it will help me to improve my 1/4 mile time???
