Default Took the 2012 Express to the track

Whenever I pick up another car I feel like it's my duty to bring it to the track once just to see what it does. The Ram ran about what I expected, 14.87 @ 93 with a 2.27 60' time. Tried a bunch of different launch techniques and it ran the same every time. I had the best results used third (second prime for the 2011 folks) and holding it out until the finish line. The DA was 1905 on that run which corrects to 14.55 @ 95 (if you believe in that sort of thing). Wish it had more oomph off the line but you can't have it all right?

Specs for the truck:
2012 RCSB Express 4x4
3.92 limited slip
700 miles, all stock

Thanks, the only mod I'm considering at this point is a Vararam. I see that you have one, how do you like it? Was it really worth .3 in the 1/4?

Times are not that bad... So how did you work the shifting? I have tried a couple of times with my R/T and did not really feel a difference.

Pretty easy, start with second selected, then as soon as it shifts to second select third. You will notice the difference when it goes into third.
