2016 Mustang GT auto with 3:55 rear track times...

Today I ran my car at Raceway Park in Old bridge N.J on a very hot day and was pleased with my results..

1st pass I held the traction switch up for 6 seconds until advance trac was totally disabled, put the trans in S and also put the car in track mode and steering in sport, I did a small burnout using the line lock and staged the car,I held the brake and got the rpms up to 1500, mashed the throttle on the 3rd yellow and cut a nice light, I hit a 2.01 60' and thats when all went to hell, the car didnt shift and seemed to bounce off the limiter which caused the car to fall flat on its face, I just coasted up to the finish at a blistering 22 seconds at 55mph. Maybe someone can tell me what I did wrong?

2nd pass I didnt hold the traction switch or even touch it, all I did was put the car in track mode and the shifter in D, I didnt even use the line lock, I did a quick power brake to clean off the stock tires and staged the car, I raised the rpms up to 1500 again by holding the brake and applying throttle, on the third yellow I stomped the pedal to the floor, cut another good light and just hoped it would shift and not embarrass me again, this time it shifted properly and I just held on and kept her centered, I was rewarded with a very respectable 2.01 60' 12.85et at 110mph on a hot and humid day, elevation was 1584 so corrected time at sea level would be 12.628 at 112.20 if you believe the drag times calculator.

3rd and final pass I was going to do everything the same as run 2 except that I would put the gear selector in S. I hit a 2.02 60' and ran 12.846 at 110.46 . The corrected times for 1325 elevation would be 12.663 at 112.078. I only posted the corrected numbers because some people and forums require a corrected time due to running in lets say Colorado and then running any of the tracks in NJ there would be a half a second difference using the same car.

Did you bump the shift paddle button on the first run and lock it in 1st?

Thanks, the third and final run I was up against a s550 Eco boost mustang which had a tune and some other things done, I had told the driver what happened on my first pass and he said he had something similar happen a few weeks back where his car went dumb and didn't shift which blew up his trans 2 or 3 gear. He returned his car back to stock n was lucky that ford didn't detect the car had been tuned. All in all it was a good evening.

Not buying the corrected times (they're always optimistic on my car - I need mineshaft air to hit them; never mind the high-altitude guys who never - and I mean never, in my 25 years of racing - run the number at sea level), but 110 mph in a stock, almost 4,000 lb, $30k car is amazing.

Do you think sticky tires would bring down your 60'? Were you easy on the throttle to stay out of spin? A converter and sticky tires could get you dangerously close to 11's.
