does powershifting make a big difference?

ok i got a new best time of 12.677 @ 108.118 my 60 fts are good now (1.677) i got this by hitting 7400 in first gear. but my 330fts are still slow (5.147) if i can get a good 330ft, ill have a sweet time.does anyone have any techniques to get that 330ft down? does powershifting make that big of a difference?

You can't just look at your 330 and think that makes the difference. Likewise, you can't sacrifice your run just to get a better 60'. It's all about the 1/4, so you need to do what gets you there the quickest. A 108 trap with a 1.67 60' should be a 12.4. My best time here at altitude is 12.30 @ 107.99 with a 1.72 60'. That's a little skewed for two reasons: 1) I'm at high altitude and shift to 5th before the 1000', and 2) I was trappin 109.xx on the other runs.

Yes, I powershift every gear, and I'd say it can help by a tenth or so if you're fast, but your current situation is not being caused by not powershifting. You just need to learn to speed shift and shift at the proper rpm.

I power shift to be cause I have always had air shifters in my race cars. so It is a norm for me to go threw the gears like that. War is correct it can make a diff. but you have to train on it all the time, if you miss you can break alot.
