I haven't had much of chance to come on here (as usual) but I just wanted to say thanks to whoever organized it. Crystal? I was also invited by a friend that's on the Chicago Garage, that's why at the end I also got in their lane. I only ran mine 3 times and had my buddy run my car once.

It was my first time at the track with my SRT8. I was expecting low 13s but all I could get was an embarrassing 14.00 I had a full tank of gas, my wife, n my fat ass in there lol....
Next time I'll lose the wife and only 1/4 tank of gas . (And maybe some weight too)

Huge turn out . Way to many cars. And the waiting to race was crazy.
Still really glad I went . But a couple things....I couldn't do a decent burnout, had the one tire spinning thing my buddy told me, and Jontoad spanked me in my 2 race lol!!!!!!!
And there's like 3 videos in different angles of it ahahaha.

That run you would have had a 13 if you didn't deep stage. If you see in the video I started to load up the converter and your top yellow staging lights switched off. I thought you pulled through the beams so I let off, so it caught me by surprise when the tree started to go. I didn't realize you deep staged till later.

When you line up you want to stop as soon as both sets of staging lights are lit. You actually get a head start that way since your car gets to roll out a foot or so before you break the beams to start your time. Deep staging means you stage closer to the beams so you don't get that roll out before you break the beams.

Deep Staging has it's advantages, depending on what you do it for. I race in a Pro Outlaw division, so I did it for better r/t off of a foot brake car. The et and mph will be slightly higher/ lower, but I always run faster than my index so it's a good thing. Now I have a trans brake and will shallow stage.

Thanx for the tips guys. About the deep staging, yea let's just say that wasn't planned lol. I tried launching at now more than 1500 rpm and it just wasn't cutting it off the line.
Like I said it was my first time in the SRT8 but not my last.
And Im not sure which run but I think I raced in pro tree?? All lights went off at the same time. Not 1,2,3 green. Totally unexpected.
Thanx for the vid Tom!

On that pro tree you want to stage deep. That's what I have to race off of in Pro Outlaw.

all true. but for what he was trying to do he didn't want to deep stage. the only time i ever deep staged was when i used to bracket race for cash.

yea... that will happen with the stock rear end. what setting do yo have your ESP on? when i was on the stock rear end i would do the burnout with the esp 20% still on (holding the dash button for 5-10 seconds) then after the burnout i would flip my home made NOesp switch (switch on the power wire for the yaw sensor under the center console) before i made the run to turn the traction control/torque management fully off. you need a little of the esp on or your computer won't tell the car to drag the brake on one side to send power to the other side.

or you could just get a limited slip rear end. i love my wavetrac.

I hit the ESP button for 5-10 seconds. It said ESP deactivated.
I thought that totally turned traction control off...?

na, that's still on 20%. the car still cuts some power. it will also still cut power a lot if you get sideways.

to have it fully off you need to take the center console apart and tap an on/off switch on the wire that is violet with a light blue stripe (not the violet one with the dark blue stripe)

just flip that switch while the car is on to disable the system fully. to turn the system back on turn the switch back then restart the car.

i leave my esp fully off almost always now that i have the LSD in the rear end. i just switch it on if its bad weather out.

Looks good James. I was a dumb ass and bought a track photo. The track photographer sucked and it is all washed out and has no contrast.
