    made it out for my first time on slicks. The car hooks way better and I couldn't adjust to it. I bogged down each time at the line. I guess this is a good problem to have as it is better then spinning.
    However now the car tells me the dampeners need to be serviced. I start out in street mode and during the run the electronics switch into either track or sport mode and the evic tells me to service the car. Anyone have this happen?
    As for my times they were not good. 12.4 was my best. I had 2.15 60'. It's all due to my lack of experience with good tires. Hope to get off the line better soon.

    Was you're traction control turned completely off??
    A8 or Stick??
    How much air in the slicks? Did you heat them?? What RPM did you try and launch at??
    Need more details :p

    Sorry, the whole family has been sick here.
    6 speed. PSI at 20. I know that was high but I planned to lower them if I spun which never happened.
    Traction control was off. Street mode for dampeners.
    Launched at 2500 to 2800. Which I know now the car needs more rpms. It's just a matter of seat time I hope. and growing balls to rev higher.
