    So I would like to take the car out to the track just to see how good of ET I can get. This is a whole different world for me. Coming from racing Top Dragster, I'm used to mashing the throttle, Which doesn't work so well with the Hellcat- LOL!!! I played with the launch controller and it seems to like having a higher launch RPM on the street. I'm just wondering what everyone has their setting at for suspension, traction control, launch etc.... So far the fastest ET on Street tires here that I've heard is 11.41 @ 125MPH. I thought that's pretty decent considering we have a corrected altitude of 3500' right now and in another month will be looking at over 4200'

    Going to be very tough to get any traction, even at the strip. If ever a car needed drag radials from the factory, its this one.

    Drag radials at 17 psi
    Everything in track but suspension in street
    Hold traction button for 5 seconds to completely disable
    Do a John Force burnout
    Run 10's
    Go home

    I run my MT DR's at 20PSI.
    You dont want everything in Track, you only want Transmission in Track. Traction in Track is for road racing and will apply more control than in Sport. So run Sport for traction and suspension in street.
    With the MT DR's I have found only need a very brief burnout on a prepped track.

    Then run 10.8? and go home.
