i think its because the airfield had some stripes on it to give better grip. check out the pictures

Did the cars experienced more tire noise/vibration with th new pavement? and in the last video the sound is way off! but very very nice collection of cars! congratilations once again boss.

I used the US Launch control at the end of the day on Saturday after all the cars had left. I COULD NOT spin my tires. I was only able to chirp my wheels through the third gear, but that was it! Grip was OUTSTANDING!!! In fact, I had a final speed at the end of the strip that was only 1 kph slower than from a rolling start at the cones.

Wow, that was interesting. Was the Launch further away from the cones, so you ahd around 50 km/h when you passed the cones?
