Every time you power brake with a OE transmission torque converter you are bending the turbine plates and warping the stator.

Their some good books and websites that can teach someone The Art of Drag Racing. There are also some really good schools as well.

DRAG Racing is not as simple as lining the vehicle up and WOT at the Green light!

All my cars including my racecar are manuals. So getting in this slow thing and just pushing the gas pedal is pretty funny to me. My super slow Daily driver ST runs low 8s so this was all just in fun.

Um wow pretty good. I trust that was 1/8 times and not 1/4 times. I still watched you video a couple of time. Me, NHRA S/G 9.90 68 Camaro (it had licence plates AFAST68 so I guess I could kinda sorta call it a street car when I was not racing it legitimately?? LOL) for over 20 years. PT Cruiser most all of last year open season 30-45 runs, previous year only about 15-25? The year before that only a few test and tune. All were full 1/4 passes.
