    This is my timeslip where I hit [email protected] Another thing to specify is the elevation you're racing at. My track is roughly 3000ft above sea level where if it was closer to sea level I'd probably break into the 11s. Mods are Ams alpha intake, rebellion decatted downpipe with midpipe, turbosmart dual port bov, eurocharged tune, kw v3 coilovers and Revozport bodykit on 18" Hre r40 wheels.

    Oh really? That means my car isn't really meeting specs. 2015 model has been tested to be 12.7 i have the 2016 model and only getting 13.3. I dont have race start option on my car but still something doesn't seem right.

    And you are NOT running 12's with a 2.2 60' and a 108MPH trap.

    You need to work on your launch, get the 60' time down, and you should be able to hit high 12's no problem.

    You're fine it's probably tires or a dozen other possible reasons.

    I don't own a 45, so I can't really help you there. Your car is making the power, the 108mph trap is proof of that. But a 2.2 60' time is dismal for an AWD car.

    I was under the impression that all 45's had race start. How are you launching your car instead?

    You might not have race mode which is part of the dynamic plus package but you definitely have race start. They couldn't advertise the 0-60 time of 4.1 if all 45's couldn't achieve it. Race start is the only way.

    I just tap on the brake so that it "hold" the braking status and when i see the lights turn i press on the gas pedal. Does that sound very unprofessional LOL.

    OH man. I have been doing it wrong all this time. I thought not having race mode means no race start. I gotta try this again.

    LOL!!!! did you used racestart at the light?!?!?
    you didn't use racestart By the way you describe how you launched your car...

    1. Be on sports mode and turn off traction as you are waiting in line to race.
    2. With the traction off, put your car in manual while approaching the stage light.
    3. carefully approach the stage light using your left foot on the further left of the brake pedal.
    4. once you have two stage light set and your left foot should be depressed all the way and steady at the end of the brake pedal
    5. then press both paddles up and will ask if you want to racestart
    6. quickly pressed right paddle up to confirm
    7. then depress the gas pedal hard (gotta time it with the tree light)
    8. let go of the brake at the end of the last yellow light just before the green light
    Megatron said you have up to 5 seconds interval to confirm and when you depress gas

    1. Turn off traction control
    2. Put car manual mode
    3. Left foot depressed at the end of brake pedal
    4. Pull both paddles up
    5. Confirm racemode by pulling right paddle up
    6. depress gas all the way
    7. when ready to launch, let go of brake and hold on to steering wheel tight


    [email protected] time slip!

    Hey Megatron, I think my problem is I need smaller rims and tires like you said.... hmmmm exhaust or wheels?!?

    All depends on what you have @reylovespayia , all you need is a decatted downpipe and midpipe, you don't need a full exhaust as it just makes the car louder and no performance gain. Wheels try to find something lightweight, I went with hre because one 18" wheel weight 18 lbs

    there's also "soft launch" where you hold down the brakes and depress gas -- rev then go.
