To get a faster RT punch the gas as soon as the second light goes out and when the third light comes on. I run mine in 1st gear and auto stick it into 2nd after i put it in 2wd. As soon as you shift into 2nd auto stick it into 3rd and you will hit 2nd prime thru the traps. And dont forget to keep shifting once past the traps...
I'm 2wd. How would a faster reaction time help my 1/4 mile time? And I hit the gas as soon as the 3rd light comes on and my truck doesn't move until after the green comes on. And I just put mine in 2 and leave it there cause with the 3.55 gears and stock 33" tires I can go about 95 mph in 2nd gear. Why would I need to shift after the traps?
