Tony,

That time does seem a bit slow. I am not so sure a stop watch will give you perfect results so that may be a part of the issue. My best results are done with traction control off. I launch at idle (so I don't spin off the line) with the transmission in 2nd (the truck will automatically shift to second anyhow). I will run second gear all the way to about 6,300 rpms then upshift to 2nd prime. I will do the same for 2nd prime, 6,300 rpm then shift to third 3. The speed limiter kicks in shortly after this. Hope this helps.
