If you can launch it and stick you should be there or at least pretty close .Start with the basics :traction , Lid , Cat back/exhaust ,and a tune. I have the nitto 315 D/R's on my A4 w/ 373's . They need some heat to work . So far ,so good . We'll see how the do with the Yank 4K stall :punch:
WELCOME to the forum and Good Luck !!

Driver mod.....and also could be in your shifting habits. You may not be hitting optimal shift points for the 1/4 mile...also power-shifting in the 1/4 could save you a little time as well if you know how to do it... this is why stalled auto's dominate the 1/4 mile.....
