WTF is the deal? Made two runs and both times i tried to launch it would pop out of first gear....hard. I'm positive i didn't pull it out...fell on its face then i had to put it back and ran it anyways. To a stunning 3.8 60' both runs. Embarrasing 14.50 @113mph and the second was a 14.33 @ 114 mph... on my bfg drag radials. What in the world would cause it to pop out of first gear? Latro.

Have you been having any problems with your transmission? I didn't see otherwise, so I'm going to assume you're running a T5. Try launching on the street and see if it does it again. Try launching at lower RPM's and see what happens. Maybe you just need to readjust the stops on your shifter. Back out the stop screw half a turn and try launching again.

I had a simular problem (with much less power and not even near the gearing you have) and adjusting the stops solved it (until I exploded 1st to 2nd two months later).
