I Ran 12.8 in the quarter with 331 gears and street tires cool weather though. 2011 5.0 manual

The weather makes all the difference. I'm from south Texas and my car ran a 12.84 with nitto 555s on it. I'm sure I could have done better but I only ran it twice. The first run was a 13 flat and I feathered the take off too much.

Well I've personally never been to the track, BUT I am going next Saturday but the test and tune starts at 2 pm WTF lol. That's like the hottest part of the day. Anyways I will let you guys know how it goes. I will be running on the stock pirellis, I have been told not to "warm" them up. Any advice?

Just spin them a little to clean them off. Don't go through the water.

Start out leaving like you would a stop sign aggressively. Bump the rpms up a little more each run till you find your cars sweet spot. It's a fine line between spinning and hooking.

Do a short burn out. If there is water on the way you have to get it off your tires. launch at 1600 rpms and work your way up. If it gets cooler you have to do a burn out to heat the rubber up
