First trip to the drag strip
Finally had a chance to hit the drag strip in Orlando yesterday. Jeep is a brand new 14 SRT with 900 miles on the clock. Temp was 62 degrees & according to the Drag Times calculator the DA was +229 ft.

Lots of break downs on the track last night caused huge delays so I was only able to get 1 pass in last night to pop her cherry :lol:

Launch control was not used, I just put it in track mode and mashed the gas. All in all it wasn't too bad.

Here's the stats..

R/T .559
60' 1.820
330 5.392
1/8 8.341
MPH 83.58
1000 10.890
1/4 13.058
MPH 104.05

On a side not the EVIC said that pass was hit a 4.6 0-60 and the 1/4 time matched spot on at 13.1

My personal best 0-60 is 4.2 on flat surface. There's definitely more to be had.

You will pick up more as it breaks in, pretty good!

Nice time and you should be in the 12.90s with some more runs. Next time out remove the stock air cleaner as it helped my 2012 .07 and 1.1 mph. This also helps lean down the stock rich tune. If you can run a 50/50 mix of 93 or 91 with 100 octane that will also help lean down the rich tune and help keep the pcm from pulling timing.
