I'm slowly getting back into the mix. Been a long road

I found out launching at idle was the best for me and try driving around the water box if possible as most stock tires rubber compond is to hard to really heat up to do any good. T/C off and trans in auto stick in 1 and let it shift its self. If you have stock tires run air pressure (HOT) AT 40LBS IN FRONT 36LBS IN REAR. If you have a stock tune pull the ABS/PUMP fuse ( its a 30 amp pink fuse and you can find out wherer it is in the owners manual) in the fuse box under the hood as this will disable the T/C FULLY.

-TC Off
-1/4 tank of gas
-Autostick 1st (let it shift itself)
-Punch it (no powerbraking)

Try to drive around the waterbox and get the right lane at Baytown. Good luck!

Damn too bad i seen this late. I want to see what my Jeep's numbers are. And see other Jeep SRT's. I don't see any around here in southeast Houston close to pasadena. I only recall seeing a silver one and another black one that goes to the gym i go to.
