I am taking my stock 2010 SRT8 auto with all season tires to raceway park in N.J on Sat.. Please share any tips or techniques for launching and getting good 60ft times. What psi in the front and rear (all season) tires is best, Do I put the trans in 1st and let it shift itself or just leave in auto for best results? Should I bring rpms up and stomp on it at the green or ease into throttle? What about traction control(on, partial or completely off)? I plan on going around the water box and doing a short power brake to clean and warm my tires. I have 100's of 1/4 mile passes/runs under my belt but I am new to this car and could use some of your proven techniques to get the most out of this car. Any help would be very much appreciated.

I drive around the water, line up in the groove. Back it straight back and stop before the water. Put it in autostick 1 and dry hop it. I try to get two dryhops in before the beams. That sets the suregrip. I make sure I have the traction controll off and it's in autostick 1. Stage it just bairly off idle and hammer it on the 3rd amber. Let it shift, mine found the rev limiter the one Time I tryd to hold the handle.

My F1's like about 34 pounds in the back.
Been 1.88 in sixty doing it my way.
