Re: My first race with my 5.0

A/C off, windows rolled up. Try to keep your car cool between runs (like, turn it off when not racing it). I think you get a better launch with traction control turned on, but I am not sure (I own a manual). Control your wheelspin, and bury that pedal once you have traction.

And good luck!

As in sport mode.. I can't remember which sequence you use to get it.. I think its hold the brake and tap TC twice.. I know to turn advanctrac off you hold the brake and press TC for 5 sec..

I threw my owners manual at a motorist in a fit of road rage.

...It's got a good weight to it.

It was either that or my iPhone and lets face it, if dude decided to chase me down and beat me up, I'd need it to call an ambulance. Lol

Go back to the dealer and ask them if they have your owners manual yet. They might just give you a new one.

Best time, wheels spined with sport more than with traction on, but my fastest time that you see here was with the sports traction on, my other times were 8.607 & 8.622
