    My instructor did 1:12.8 with my car on my local track which I already had over 60 laps on and I only manage 1:14 so I get your frustration.

    What would happen if you put the car in Drag mode. bypassed launch control, put the dial in D, held down the brake, pulled back on both paddle shifters (neutral), held the rpm to 4000 and released the paddles and the brake at the same time and just held on for the ride?

    Technically you cant, i dont believe. Without LC engaged, clutches release as soon as brake is applied.
    I spoke with tremec about a "mini LC" feature my previous car had.

    Scenario:
    Stoplight/staging light
    Right ft on brake
    Light turns green
    Right ft off brake
    Right foot smashes throttle pedal
    Rpms jump wild up
    Clutches engage car spins or launches

    They said the gt500 will do this as well. I do not recall if TC/LC strategies are in play with this method.

    However, this may be the poor mans LC technique to get higher rpms until tuning is available

    Never thought about that, but im pretty positive your clutches would be smoked very very quickly doing that. Probably the worst option of the 3 id say, performance or longevity

    Or may in fact be just as good/bad as the mini LC above, just with more steps

    I don’t quite understand.
    First you say, technically you can’t.
    Then you say the Tremec engineers said you can???

    If by foot braking you mean
    Left foot on brake
    Right foot on gas
    Light turns green
    Left foot off brake
    Right foot stays WOT

    Then no, u cant footbrake

    I described 1 foot doing all the work, and applying/releasing each pedal individually.

    Actually, brake pedal doesnt NEED to be applied. Stomp the throttle from a stop would be the same.

    Does that help any?

    Another question @V00D00

    So will the GT500 move/drive at all with both feet off the pedals?

    You know like a automatic will go 3 mph or so in drive without pressing the accelerator.

    Ehh. I dont recall, but i think scenario dependent. Dont recall a hill assist.
    I think, on flat ground, if u come to a complete stop and both feet off, car will sit still

    Earl: I had that same thought when I watched the Vegas clips.

    Did anyone else get to cruise around Vegas in a GT500 with Jim during the Track Tour? :inspect:LV SP.png

    I just picked up my brand new Redeye widebody last week...Still breaking it in...Out the door for under 75K...MSRP was over 83K...I will be at Atco next spring when it opens in March/April to race..I can assure you I will be going 10.2 all stock on just a drag radial...At least 10.3 all day long...With addition of skinnies 10.1's.

    By the way I had a custom all steel fully functional street 1968 Camaro that I built and went 10.10 at 133 mph naturally aspirated on 100% 93 octane...I also had a 1969 Camaro that I custom built that did 11.05 naturally aspirated on 93 back in 1993...I also had one of the very 1st produced 5.0 coyote Mustangs when I got my Kona blue 2011...I kept it stock and did 12.80 at 108...I traded that car for a new Deep Impact blue 2013 Mustang GT premium that did 12.55 at 110 mph stock then did 10.83 at 129 with a Roush blower drag radial aluminum driveshaft and magna flow cat back on 93 octane.

    Presently I do have a 2014 Coyote 5.0 Ford F150 4x4 and I was a bit of a Mustang fan that got pissed with Ford doing the jerk job on the release of their GT 500...For the price and availability I switched brands...To be honest I am an old school muscle car guy at heart and I think the Challenger look is better for my taste...I do still think the GT 500 is totally bad ass and a beautiful car...I would own 1 if I could along with my Redeye...I am a fan of American muscle and I hate imports...I have been into drag racing almost 30 years and wrenched on many cars...Racing a redeye to low 10's after driving old school muscle cars with manual brakes , manual steering , and manual valve body autos will be a joke for me...I even had a 1992 fox body Mustang that ran 12.9 with me driving a 5 speed manual...That was 1 of 2 custom built cars by Big Daddy Duane Gutridge of Outrageous Mustangs...Almost forgot that one...So if you are questioning my car racing credibility well there you go.

    Buying you a beer is cheaper than voiding my warranty to beat you.
