I feel like i was too cautious with the launch. In any old parking lot, I can whomp on it and break the tires free but it was my first time going so you can understand a little nervousness.

I'll be sure to preload a little next time and try to do consistent burnouts.

I still have dreams of super charging so 10 4 on 3.73 and the torque converter and exhaust.

Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go look up what DA means

Not bad at all... I should have looked first. Catch the right day here and some negative DA could get the times a little lower but 1000da isn't all that bad. When my buddy took his SRT8 over a few weeks ago is was 2500ish already.

Well, if you were being that cautious, you might need some good suspension upgrades when you start launching more aggressively. I can help you with that.

BTW, DA = Density Altitude. The lower the number, the quicker the car runs. The higher the number, performance suffers. There are online calculators to help you "correct" your ET & Trap Speed to sea level or any other altitude you want to compare to.
