Hate to say it (because I resemble that too) but it is AGE Robert! LOL

We just aren't as quick to shift as we were when we were in our 20s. But that is what the blue pill is for. HA HA

BTW... I heard this paramedic story at the National Conference yesterday:

An old paramedic is on a call and his young partner looks over and sees that his fly is down. He whispers to the old guy... "Hey partner your fly is down."

The old paramedic in a cool, calm voice replies back, "It can't get out if it can't get up".

Have a great day Robert!

too funny, I'm sorry I missed seeing you up in Dallas, but there is always other times...

hope you had a great trip...

We found a stretch of road on the way home to wind them up! Around 135 mph there is a lot of air rushing around the brick, a little freaky until you get use to it.

Add about 35 mph to that for my trip home...

Thanks and I'm researching all alternatives... So thanks for the heads up....

I've tried the no lift shift deal but not during any super hard acceleration. I did it just playing through gears and eased the shifter in gear no clutch and was pretty surprised.

Wonder where you got that idea?

Rowing through the gears like that works pretty well, but I think they are talking about not lifting off the throttle to shift... Right foot flat on the floor, stab the clutch and grab the next gear... Without some form of technology, this thing would wind way up.... I'll have to get a two step, or multi step or like was said, some form of ignition limiter...

We'll see what happens when I get back and see how it shifts then... If it's smooth like it was when stock, and can handle the power, then I may just stay like that... or go with something like a two step to help with consistent launches....

I backed out around 145mph. Still think the noise is a little freaky at first. Did you hear it or is it just me?

My understanding is that shifting without the clutch is not the best thing for the tremec.

There is certainly some noise, but I was more tuned into the motor and driveline noise due to my recent problems...I've been 145 several times and didn't note anything that sounded out of place...

I'll let you know what it sounds like at 200 before too long...

You need to take up waterskiing, wakeboarding, kneeboarding and tubing. I am sure you have no shortage of water... Just have them bring a ski boat and some davits next time they provision out the rig... Part of the "compensation" package.
