I usually try to catch a couple of Thursday nights each month during the winter. I don't like hour long staging lines or hot days so I pretty much do the Thursday nights. The track was pretty good last Thursday. It was my first outing of the winter season. I cut a .001 light my first run of the season.

Yes, I have a maggie. I only made four passes and left because I was having problems with the transmission tune I loaded. It was short shifting at 5900 rpm. For some reason I could not get another tcm tune to load and my lap top battery got low so I called it a night.

I noticed in the video it was shifting early. What did you have to do like a write entire to load it?

It's just a matter of having a few different tunes saved for different purposes. For example, one for street driving, one for the strip (warmer weather) one for cooler weather etc. It just so happened that the tune I had loaded last thursday was one written when I was experiencing wheel spin before I did suspension work. It was dialed back to circumvent hitting the rev limiter. The next day I successfully loaded the tune I wanted at the track Thursday night that had 6400 rpm shift points.

Don't know if you went last night or not, I didn't see your green camaro. They robbed us without even using a gun as the track was shit left overs from the snowbird nationals and only using one lane. I think the prep consisted of running the broom tractor down once. I couldn't launch without either hitting the rev limiter or short shifting. Four passes and I called it a night.

In all fairness to the track, it is not in that condition on a regular basis. The track was prepped pretty decent the previous Thursday T&T. It probbly came down to dollars and cents. A light turn out before the Christmas holidays does not generate enough attendance money to pay for a proper prep. My feelings are if the track is going to be open, then it should be prepped properly. The track should not open if it hasn't been prepped properly because when it is not prepped properly it's more hazardous than need be and racers can experience wheel hop much more easily which in turn can be very expensive to replace damaged drive train components.
