Ya that's what I was thinking. I had no wheel slip or nothing surprising. It jus wanted to get off that line fast!!! Haha

Re: 30 degree launch...3.8sec

Launching off the line is where your 60' times come in as a good launch with a bone stock or even with a tune and couple bolt on mods is 1.75 to 1.80. You get those times at the track then you no your hooking up. Remember hooking on the street is easy but hooking at the track is another thing.

Re: 30 degree launch...3.8sec

What's the highest you all can get your launch control? Mine will not go past 3000RPM. Even when I manually hold the brake/floor it I still can't get it past 3000.

I found a lower rpm to work better in colder weather...say about 1800

It would nice if there was an indicator that showed letting you know what rpm you are launching from rather than counting ya know
