I know it is silly but you are turning all nannies off when you launch? You are also not using the launch control correct? I will also assume you at doing a burnout until the tires smoke?
Finally, what pressure are you running?

You might have one hell of a prepped track. Next time out try to just do a dry hop or a 1 second tire spin to just clean the tires up and then give it a go and see if it bogs.

Matt
All nannies are off, although I was trying to figure out if they were kicking in. My line lock seems to set off the "SERVICE TRACTION CONTROL" message after a good burnout, need to take the key out for one min to reset so I can't do that between burnout and staging. End of the night I tried not doing a proper burn out just a quick spin of the tires in 2nd and launching from 1000rpm took like a 100th off my 60 so may play with that a bit.

In the 5th gens I found that the DRs were not worth that much of an improvement. My best pass with my stock 10-SS was 12:87, adding Nitto 555Rs got me to 12:72. Becareful as well if you try slipping the clutch to help with the bog, you will smoke it.

never thought of increasing tire pressure to get a little bit of spin I'll give that a shot.

That is the best run I've managed with mine
Wow what elevation are you at? That corrected time is close to what a 1LE (onebad1le) ran with DRs before. Not sure I about that corrected MPH though unless you have more mods than DRs. Good run I think.

Some people can play golf, run a marathon or sink 3 pointers. I can not do any of those things with any finess or desired results. But, I can drive anything in a straight line or on a road course and lay good numbers down. Driving is my passion so I get a kick out of it.
Matt
Thanks for the tips and good Advice. It was interesting, at least for me to compare our runs. I did start ignoring the HUD and started looking at the tach and the new 1LE lower "redline". Has anyone from Chevy confirmed the 6250 redline idea as the ideal shifting point? I did not think an electronic tach would be so far behind the engine. I would also think this would only apply to the lower gears. Of course maybe its the drivers reaction time to the redline.

How about if this pops up on the HUD?

"Shift now stupid!"

Wanted to get more seat time, but no street T&T tonight at Atco. I need to join the NHRA. Maybe I better keep my day job.

Next week I will try out my worthless(?) fuse pull. The car does seem a bit stronger, or maybe it's my wishful thinking.

Track elevation is around 2500 ft with DA keeping it anywhere from 3300 to 4300 as we are pretty close to the mountains here.
only other mods are a CAI and JBA Highflow cats

hoping to make a trip in the fall to Mission BC as that track is much lower elevation and it would be nice to see what I can run there.
