this is what I have learned, the first time I went to the track I thought it was like "pinks" green light and you gotta leave RIGHT AWAY. not at all. when the green like goes your time doesn't start till you leave. You can sit there for 5 seconds if you wanted too. As far as getting your 60' times down, I take it you have 4wd? If thats the case then you put that puppy in 4 wheel and power break the truck. dont go past 2-2200 RPMS at first, see how the truck reacts to that. Hell you can even do it on the street just to practice. You can launch when you feel ready, not when the light turns green ya know? that right there will help ALOT. Believe me im heading to the track once my new sticks get here. Ive been practicing the 4wd launches alot and i feel really good about it.
A guy in a DMAX right next to me was getting like 1.7s 1.6s all night. REAL good driver but his launches were awesome. Get better at that and you will do much better next time at the track. Oh and dont worry about switching back into 2wd, it wont make a difference not till you stop anyways. Ive good 101mph in 4wd and no problems at all. Also Im turning 35s and again no problem. I want to get some smaller rubber for my stock rims, I was told that should help alot too
