    Bolted on my MT ET Streets from my previous Challenger and headed out to Sacramento Raceway last night with NorCal Challengers. Great night, great people.

    Car is stock, A8 (obviously). Started launching easy and ended up with pretty quick roll-ins to generate some good 60's... never tried straight throttle stabbing; was happy with 10's and REALLY didn't want to twist the DS.

    Good consistency, even when traction started to decline with the moisture in the air. Don't look at my reaction times; I'm an awful bracket racer ;-)

    FWIW, I've always run a little faster at Sonoma. I'll probably hit the drags again when it warms up a bit and I have an aluminum DS :D

    Those slips prove different about braket racing! Lol reaction mean nothing in bracket long as your reaction is consistent. Hell! You'd have won your bracket at any track with that kind of consistency..

    FYI.. RT takes a long time and lot of trips to the tree to dial in.. Stage deep and go on the yellow if you want to give the Appearnace of a better RT.. I've been down the track a good 1000 times and I still get shaky legs as I stage.. Stage last and stage deep and leave early and it will help. Sitting at the line waiting and waiting while the other lane is getting set.. while your adrenaline spikes and your legs start to shake makes it hell to get a good start.. Be the slow guy to the tree and after you're ready get to prestafe quick Load the car how you want then bump the break just enough to roll forward to trip the stage light.. If you go on green you'll always be last out..depends how fast your body can process the yellow.. Some leave on the first flick of yellow.. Some leave on solid yellow.. Some leave as it dims.. But it takes time for body to recognize and process and react.. Everyone leaves on yellow that has good RT though..

    Yeah, I hate waiting at the tree after the slower car takes off... it's harder to keep my concentration and timing.

    Traction is turned OFF, but other users report great results using SPORT
    Trans is in TRACK
    Suspension is in STREET
    And I leave the A8 in "D" to let it rip the shifts itself :D
