Default Racing????

Dont know if this is the right place to post but here goes.. How do you go about Racing somebody at the lights? Do you put it in 4 wheel drive or 2 wheel drive.. Shoot, i was at the light and put it in Drive mode (Setting 3) on my edge and when the light turned green i was sitting there and spinning LOL.. Heck it was a nice smoke show but I was going nowhere fast.. So thats the question of the night for me..

Four wheel high. Boost lauch at 15psi and stand on it.

Too many of those and you will be seeing me for a tranny.

out of all the guys I race with I'm the only one launching in 2wd and that's only because I'm running a V8 g***er, out of the diesels if they launch in 2wd they just spin even on the sticky drag strip


now that I think about it, one guy has a 2wd 6.0 DORF and he has to run DOT slicks, and still spins pretty bad.

4wd ... crawl up on top and over - sort of like standing on his shoelace. Full boost launch so you give him a smokin' rubber racing stripe right down the middle of his car!

BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

Was going to with my old 12V. I used to put it in 4wd, hold the clutch in, raise it up to 2500 rpm, dump the pedal, and hang on while banging those long gears. Of course a $1000 clutch helps out a lot. Always 4wd for manuals or autos.
