This is a stratagy mistake... make the car hook right from the starting line. launch the car at a very high rpm to avoid nitrous shock. Over torqing the engine, bending connecting rods.
You could have covered the 1/4 mile qucker, using a smaller shot all the way down the track.
It's hard to play catchup.
Sorry i should have specified it was a street car. Spraying on street tires on the street out of the hole isnt an option. Doing that would just send it directly to redline faster then a street bike revs up. A smaller shot would have helped for the first couple gears but the top end really did makeup for it. I remember racing a moderatly modified EVO. He destroyed me out of the hole and at about half track i went by him like he was standing still.
