I think the GC has something like the largest gas tank of any it's class. So try not to do your launch on a full tank. Try a half tank. Also, do you have anything at all in your GC? Like child seats, strollers or anything in the cargo area?

Re: First launch

I'm in Alberta Canada so I will have to wait until spring when I change back to the summer tires. I was doing the launch with only me in the vehicle nothing extra. No cargo. Best time 5.1

5.1....That's just not right. Are you sure all the plug wires are attached. I think I could do less than 5.1 going up a hill.

Re: First launch

Dial up the launch RPMs and have less gas in the truck. That should help.

Re: First launch

I've gotten a 4.2 with a passenger but that was in freezing cold air and low DA, 3/4 tank of fuel. Plus mine has the tow hitch so you lug around the spare tire as well. Keep that in mind if you have the tow package. I agree that it's noticable quicker with 1/4 tank of fuel for sure. I ran 13.19@103.7 mph at the track and the on board timer said 13.2 for that run so it's pretty accurate. Op great time no question!

You can do it on 15's as well, but I think the rpm range is different. Look in the manual.
