You know, I bumped into Paul Ferry, the maker of that bar and told him the same thing. I told him that ever since I put that bar on the car was BORING to launch. He said that is the number one complaint with it. It is much more impressive looking when the car twists up like a pretzel and goes towards the tower and you have to wrestle it back, but I busted an axle and took out the tranny on one of those launches, and with a little more power, I think I wouldn't be able to wrestle the car back into the groove. With the bar, I'm now ready for some serious power. I won't be shocking the suspension as much, but I'm definately shocking the hell out of my wallet!
Besides, you can always pull one of the end links for some nasty looking launches and then put it back later for some nasty quick launches.

11.3@123mph on 195/75/14" whitewalls. Yes, 195s!
11.2 on the big giant slicks. What's the point? Maybe I'll go back to the whitewalls. They are lighter and have less rolling resistance.

X2! ...I might try pulling off one end link just to try...

I really like my HR bar, my car launches hard but I have lightened my front end up alot. I don't have a front sway bar, battery is in the rear, glass bumper, glass hood, no a/c, skinnies in the front. Maybe try lightening up the front end? What are you 60 footing?

I also have a fiberglass front bumper and hood, no front sway bar, 90-10 front shocks and skinnies...But I still have the working a/c and a stock location battery. I must admit though that at the end of last year's season, the slicks were finished, which I know doesn't help......As for 60 footing, I don't remember exactly, but I'd say somewhere around 1.51...
