Default 2010 Hemi going to the track tonight!

Alright, it's a crew cab and it's stock down to the paper filter. Just wanting to get a base line in before I start adding mods. I'll let you guys know what run and post a slip when I get back.

Any tips from the 09-10 people? Manual shift or auto shift? Tire pressure? (stock 20's) Powerbrake at the tree?

Thanks for any tips!

Edit: Just saw that my Diablo tuner was shipped at the front door! Hopefully this will help a little bit for tonight. I know without a full intake and exhaust I want get the full benefits, but we'll see what she does.

I'd make runs shifting manual and auto, with and without coming up on the converter before you leave. Tire pressure is going to take some experimenting as well; the trick is to run as much as you can without spinning but don't go so low that the truck starts walking on the top end.

This is completely stock except for the 93 Diablo Tune. With a half tank of gas also. Ran three times and each run was identical wether I manually shifted or used auto. I was hoping for a 14.9, but oh well. Time for some more mods

Oh well is a good approach. Can only go down from here, right!?

I would have hoped for better too. Hoping to get my QC to the track soon for a baseline.

My last slip where I trapped 94 I was shifting manual and didn't shift at the very end of the track. It didn't help my time, but helped my trap.

It helped a little if you look at the middle and right slips. Compare the 60's and then the incremental ET's.

Yeah, it helped a little. In auto it wants to shift right before you cross the line at the end. I'll try both ways again when I go back after a few more mods.
