    mods are tune, thermostat, spark plugs, drop in k&n filter

    Any tips for better track times?
    Traction control on or off?
    Do you guys stall it? If so, what rpm is best?

    Thanks guys!

    Front tire Psi at 25-27 PSI, Traction control off, Stage car at 1800-2200 RPM. Enjoy the ride and giggle. **Tuner dependant, transmission in sport.

    Its more boring but my SHO runs better in straight drive lol. Traction off and I launch mine at 2500-3000 RPMS.
    Also, tape bananas to the car..... (if you know you know)

    I love how this is spreading now... LOL

    on topic.. brake boost 2k to begin with more if you hook well and if you don't drop tire pressure. Adjust accordingly. Pop hood and ice on intake manifold between runs is a game changer and also have fun!

    agreed with Jordan, launch is all going to depend on track prep and your tires. Anywhere between 1800 an 2500 depending on prep, set front tires at 27 psi and just practice getting your launch right. A bad launch will haunt you the rest of the pass.

    Don't worry about R/T unless you are bracket racing. Just get that launch right.

    I am SO glad to see your post!!! I swear to everything that my car feels more power/pull/faster just leaving it in regular "D"! I've tried putting it into S many times and I'm convinced it's better in D. I love putting it into S though just for normal driving because Matt's Gearhead AO tune has this incredible down-shift / rev-matching thing it does in S!

    EDIT!.... I just realized I missed your comment about the bananas! Dodge is actually going to start making those in PINK to encourage people to take them off! LOL! Not kidding.

    Matt has said to use D not S at the track.
