Going to the track with an auto?

Just wondering how an automatic v6 would do at the track? Of course it wouldn't beat anyone but how do you go about launching with an automatic? It would just be for fun and just to see what time I could get.

So any advice on how to go about launching with an automatic or any other tips?

Sorry never took my car to the track so I'm a complete noob at this!!!

Automatics are actually best for the drag strip because they shift so much faster than a manual and there is no chance of missing a shift.

What's a jmod?

And I always thought it was better to have a Manuel! Awesome then!

I'll be getting a hand held tuner soon so ill slap a 93 octane race tune on there and take it to the track and see how she does.

If you leave on green your reaction time will be terrible. Have to learn where on the last amber you have to hit it. Takes practice.

You'll be fine. You'll have tons of fun. Auto/Manual who cares. Go out there and enjoy it!
