2013 Hemi not so Express

So I went to the Mobile Dragway (1/8th mile maybe 300ft short) last night and was not impressed by my times first pass was 10.3 not sure if it was the fact the a/c was on or just a bad launch, second pass I had a/c off, tow haul on and a bad reaction time managed to squeeze a 9.1 @ 65mph still slower than I expected. My rear gears are 3.55 and I was running with a half tank of fuel but there has to be a trick to getting it to come off the line better I was looking at another post where someone mentioned moe's 87mm throttle body as a fix for this but I just ordered my CAI so cash is a bit tight but I did find some 17" wheels for $100 so was wondering on tire size and any other tips.

I know several of our Florida chapter members are drag masters... Stu, Keith, and Mario come to mind. Hopefully they'll be able to help you...

First question do you have radials or you running stock tires

Also did you spin at all off the line for every .1 wasted at line is actually .15 wasted in 1/8 mile so getting started from line is your trick a 9s 1/8 pass is very possible in a stock truck

Yes factory tires had a little spin when the power kicked in but not too much I'm launching from idle I saw some people preloading but I didn't get a chance to make another pass. I was thinking the truck would be a solid mid 8 factory all the hp and all.

9.1 is pretty good bone stock, but something's wrong with the mph if you only got 65, even if a typo an you got 75. Got a pic of the slip that helps diesecting this

Loading up a hemi truck is worse the best times have been had from idle or at around 1200 basically a high idle

Ok will load picture soon reading the ticket 9.15 was at the 594 mark 9.84 is at the 1/8 mark 65.16 is the mph at 1/8 my other ticket shows 66.02 mph but I ran a 10.39 wondering if the tow haul really made that much of a difference
