Re: Going to the track

I know it would be a learning experience and i am not looking to beat anyone even after i do the chip, I am mostly worried about timing the lights and the brake stalling and such and not hesitating to go at the last yellow light.

Do y'alls AUTOSTICKS shift for you if you forget to shift it? The SRT8's do. That yields our best times. Here's what all the SRT8 guys do.

TC off

Hold brake and gas and hold it at 1000-1200 rpms. Only start doing this when both of you are staged. If you hold it for more than 5 seconds, the PCM/TCM will yank timing out amking you slower. More traction control crap. Even though it's off, it's still on. Trust me it sucks!

Wait for the 3rd yellow to light and do what I said.

I don't think you'll have to do a burnout. Go around the waterbox for the first few passes. If you start spinning, do a few second burnout. Burning out too long will make your tires too slick from being too hot. Have fun and enjoy yourself. Remember, AC off at all times. No one likes someone's AC system dripping water on the track!!
Dam u said it best bro!!! brake stall around 1500-1700 rpm leave on 3rd yellow watch out u hooked for life

Thanks..... this ain't my first rodeo!

To the OP..... don't worry about your start. You're putting too much emphasis on your launch. Just play with it and learn it. You're out there having fun and do just that. You've got some pretty good advice from everyone here. Joe certainly is fantastic at cutting a light, even though he does run a 14.999!!:rofl: J/K Crookie!! Couldn't resist. Who cares what you're RT's will be. Be more concerned about your ET's than RT's. Your RT's will have nothing to do with your ET's. Your ET's don't start until you actually leave the line. Hell, my boys with their Turbo SRT8's don't leave the line for 1-2 seconds b/c they're building boost. Then they run people down which is pretty funny!! Every rig is different. Keep running until you find out what works best for your truck. I leave off the line at 1400rpms where a few of my buddies leave at idle. Every truck is different. Just HAVE FUN!!
