Did a 0-60

Played with my Edge CTS 0-60. In 2wd, non-boosted launch blew the tires away but I finally got a 6.8. In 4wd, non-boosted I got a 5.9. Tried one boosted launch, but I don't think I was fully locked in 4wd. Either that or my transfer case didn't like the boosted launch. It made some interesting noises and I got out of it. I will say that it chirped the tires in 4wd when I boosted it. This thing is impressive... I may try it again and see if I can get a decent boost launch... maybe...

Ive done some 4x4 boosted launches in my truck racing and I must say its quite impressive how fast it will leave but it is super hard on the transfer case u joints and brakes from trying to hold the truck back. It mainly comes down to how important that win is...

I was just trying a boosted launch for the first time. It left so hard that two cowboy hats on my dash and everything in my cubbies went to the back seat. For real. Couldn't find my iPhone and it was in the back floorboard. I may actually NOT do another boosted launch... Lol

Gotta love the good kill stories... My first boosted launch was against a fellow Ford.. An unsuspecting V8 Mustang. He looked at me like I had 3 heads as the smoke cleared and his this thoroughbred got turned back into a pony. First day I had the SCT, I was shaking in my boots after that.
