    You're launching way too high for street tires. Try 1500 rpm with a light foot in 2nd gear. I can rip off 1.9 -2.0 60fts like clockwork with that method.

    Will give it a shot next time. Thanks for the tip. What is considered a good reaction time? I almost lost to a VW Golf R because his reaction time was like .16X and his 60' time was 1.6XX. That guy could drive.

    You want to be as close to .000 as possible. I've done a .013 once lol. Usually in the .400 range though

    DOnt worry about R/T, get your technique down.

    you need to get consistant on your car with those tires, and that power. once thats maximized you can work on thr R/T because you will have the "muscle memory" in place to perform your best everytime

    @JStang did you get a chance to take some logs, and show them to cobb? It would be helpful, so they we can get a full release map soon.
