2013 5.0 track apps 0-60

So I've had my 2013 5.0 for 6 months now and am loving it! So I finally got my licence recently and decided to try the track apps for the first time. I've only been doing 0-60s to start out with I've maybe done 10 so far and for some reason I can't get better then 5.1 seconds! I have keep traction control on due to I'm new to the car and don't want to total it... What are some things I can do to get a better 0-60? Also with the 3.73s 2nd gear ends at like 58 mph if I got a tune and movied my redline up 200 rpm would it be worth it?
Thanks

Traction is your enemy right now. Sticky tires, and lcas at the very least.
But most importantly.... Driver mod. Seat time is your friend.

Lol right...hey your learning to drive?! Here is a 35K car

To be productive. Traction control needs to go. At least put it on sport mode. Also manual or auto? Assuming manual? If so you probably need to work on driving with a stick more.

Read the owners manual to learn how to enable/disable your 3 different modes for traction control. As far as grinding in second gear, sounds like it could be a synchro problem. I dont have any grinding what so ever. Take it to the dealer, should still be under warranty.

hold the brake and hold traction control for like 5 or 7 seconds, that turns off all traction control, and for grinding in second its not normal but ive driven stick my whole life and these cars are the worst for shifting while at high rpms, something about it is tough to do, i get locked out of 2nd and 3rd alot at high rpms but hopefully a mgw shifter will cure most of that

The reason you get locked out sometimes is mostly due to the fact that the stock shifter bracket is made of rubber, so under load it flexes and basically doesn't allow you to get into gear. A barton 2-post bracket, will solve nearly all that. Mine hasn't done it once since installing the barton bracket. But the grinding is being caused by something else, most likely a bad synchro.

Is sport mode available in the manual 2013 GT Premium? I don't have it or cannot find it. Help!

You should. Again, read your owners manual. To get sport mode hold the brake, and hit the traction control button twice fast

I bought the Shifter Stabilizer Bushings by Energy Suspension for under $20.00 and that solved my 2nd to 3rd shifting problem at high RPM.

mine is a 2012 but im sure u have sport mode, read the manual it takes like a minute to find it , the first thing i do before i go anywhere is turn off all traction control unless its raining then its nice to have on, but really just hold brake push traction button and hold it until the display say traction control off, its very simple, and as for shifting i do have a barton shifter and bracket, and it worked great for six months but im not sure if someyhing is loose or wore out but ive been getting locked out alot lately, but i do have an mgw on order so i havent messed with it too much

Thanks for the tip. You got me there. My wife makes fun of me reading all instructional manuals regardless of complexity. I missed this and went straight pushing buttons in the car.
I too have been doing the 0-60 and have not gotten it below 5.0 sec. I have street tires that don't help!

No problem. Dont be afraid to pull out the owners manual bud. These cars nowadays have so many gadgets and what not, that 10 years ago we would have never thought about. As far as traction LCAs will help drastically.

I've seen those, I actually like the feel of the stock shifter, I'm gonna give the bushing a try.

With all do respect, learn the car, and learn to drive. Take the car out, learn the clutch, learn to feather it, learn to launch with traction on, when you get a good launch without kicking the traction control on then screw with it. After you have the launch down worry about the shifting. From shooter, slow is smooth, smooth is fast. Until you know the car like the back of your hand all youre doing is wasting rubber.

Before my tune I was running a 4.9 0-60, I havent really gotten to drive the car since then. The tune can raise your rpms, but be safe.

Again, LEARN TO DRIVE!!!!

Dude I put 7000 miles on my stang since December... And what rpm do you recommend to launch from? And do I just release the clutch when I goto launch? Sorry but I'm new to this =\

I understand, and thats more miles than ive put on mine, but then again, this is my 4th stang. Each car is a little different, if you have 3.73s idk. Do not just realse the clutch, feathering the clutch is...a skill. You just start letting it out slowly until it starts to grab. I mean no disrespect when I say learn to drive. But city driving is completly different than racing. Find an empty spot in a parking lot or a track somewhere. Learning to race takes time. These new coyotes are amazing, and such a blast to drive. You will learn the car better than you ever thought. LCAs and a better tire will help, but again until you learn to launch youre spinning your wheels.

I agree here. When I first got the car, even though I could drive manuals before it, I still went and drove to an empty parking lot and goofed with it for a few hours just getting used to wear the clutch catches, how hard it could be pushed, etc.

Sport mode will let you have a little more freedom, but still keep the car in check. If you wanted to go do a road course, sure put it in sport mode. Drag racing, turn it off.

How will turning off traction control help my 0-60 if it will allow more wheel spin?

The way traction control works, is it reduces power, either by braking or not allowing as much power as it can give, which in turn will obviously slow down your car lowering your times.

So if I turned it off how much of a different time should I expect? Also is like 1900 a good launch rpm?

I can't answer that. Each car and driver is unique. 1900 is reasonable, if you don't just dump the clutch. It you let it slip you should be alright, but the key is to be fast about it. Again, practice is your best friend right now. No one on here can tell you exactly where or how to drive your car. I usually do around a 1500 slip try start then go wot when the clutch is out and I don't spin first.

What do you mean by let the clutch slip instead of dumping it?

somebody definitely needs more seat time.

Slipping the clutch*(sometimes referred to asfeathering the clutch) is a term used to describe when the driver alternately applies and releases the clutch to achieve some movement of the car. It's calledslipping*because the clutch plate will slip against the*flywheel*surface when such an action is performed.

You are going to have to learn how to 'feather' or slip the clutch. It will allow you to get power to the ground, but not excessively, almost controlled power. It's a very valuable trait that you're going to have to learn. I don't know how to explain it much better.
