7500 rpms ??!!! No wonder u were wheelspinning to glory .. Try practising launches at around 3.5k if ur dumping the clutch or try 5-5.5k if ur launching by riding the clutch .. This should certainly improve ur launch timings .. Also the best bet would be to get semi-slicks .. And yes pls do buy a zex or a NOS kit preferably single nozzle as at the most u will be going in for a 50 shot only .. Well there is no hard rule for a perfect launch .. It depends on car to car basis .. So u need to practise atleast a million times each time varying the parameters such as revvs , clutch & accelerator usage etc .. Practise alone makes a man near to perfect .. So get urself a pretty well rubberised road and start the launch practises .. Time each of ur launches like 0-100 each time varying the parameters mentioned earlier .. See what u find the best and strike a balance .. This is what i was thought by someone and it certainly did help me .. Might help u as well ..

does sitffening include the fact that you raised the rear ? that improves traction doesnt it ?

Dilip is planning a revenge at the Bangalore speedrun. I hope he creates a record for the next couple years.
Nine seconds fine.
But record for the next couple of years......oh gosh, the bangalore riders are'nt that bad.

Dude! 7500 rpm is way too much for a proper launch. With stock rubber and numerous tries, my Vtec had the best 0 - 100 timing with a 2700 rpm launch. Timed with the Gtech Pro.

I know i am a bit off topic but,

Hey GTO do you still have that Gtech Pro ? That would be the best thing to check for launch practice.

William Samuel Stephenson's record is 10.521 in that 12R.
Stock 170bhp litre bikes can do 9 sec timings if & only if , the rider is SKILLED!
