    Made a few runs today at the track and the electroncs in my Hellcat were shorting me by .2 seconds all around ! We had a V-box mounted in the car comparing numbers and my best 0 to 60 was 3.7 on the V - box ( also backed up by the track printout ) and 3.9 in the cars stat pages ! I'm gonna run on the stock Pirellis a few more times , then upgrade to some Nitto DR's ! Dropped the rear tire psi to 26 and on the 2 nd run it seems my warning light went ( low air) on exactly as I was trying to heat up the tires and restricted my wheel spin! Gonna have to look into that!

    It seems with the Pirelli tires , the best way to launch the car is with launch and traction off , everything in track mode setting except suspension (street mode) ! Tranny in Manual 2 , powerbraking with your left foot at 2200-2300 RPM's , let go at the green light and gently throttle her up eventually into a full throttle , then switch over to automatic ! I'm gonna work on my launching for a bit and maybe then try paddling shifting Her down the track!

    Looking awesome there Johnny! I agree, be careful revealing your 1/4 mile time. Don't want the Tesla Dude coming up with a reason he can't make it. One unknown I hope doesn't surface is if the Tesla scammer does some mods before racing you again. That would once again be unfair. Appears you're practicing with the stock version of what you have. Let's hope the Tesla dude has more integrity next time.

    Solid. Sounds like you are doing the right things, and practice makes perfect! Teslas have an advantage, when it comes to putting the power to the ground. Keep up the good work, and the Tesla will have the unsavory view of your taillights going through the traps! When is the rematch?
