    When launching off idle works ....

    I got wrapped up in my own deal and forgot to share this ...,

    some of you know my my wife Traci from around the track or whatever. NMCA Norwalk (when I hurt my motor) is all makes, so itís usually her one chance a year to race with my truck.... The Ram has run 14.10ís, her first time trial was 14.2x ... she did a wonderful job backing the thing down, leaving on idle, 4wd, and dumping on the big end to put the 3 pass average on the 15.00 for the win.

    So indeed there is a place for off idle launches, apparently it end in victory lane
