Track conditions?

Tune may need a little adjustment? I'm sure IDP will take care of you, by the way.

Did the truck spin off the line with the custom tunes?

Runnin in 4x4 or 2?

everything was realy consistant on the low end. but there was no changes in weather or tires or anything like that. just when i got there i had it on xtreme street and kept running consitant 15.3. but when i ran it on performance that came with sct it ran 14.9 a couple times then i put it back on my custom tune and it ran slower again lol

Do you already have studs?

ID might have given you a headsafe tune. The SCT tune may not be.
