Got my best time today.

Got my best run today. Love the cold air. Here's the slip. Couldn't get the tires to heat so spun alittle on launch.

Cam/heads/CAI/LT/20in DR's/22's on front.

Nice pass! I wish my pile would have ripped that short time off the other night. My converter is only flashing 2400-2500. What converter do you have?

Yeah...I have to go back with these good temps. I need a converter though. I was cutting 1.8 coming off idle with a stab. I was a couple tents slower at the 1/8th but at 96mph. 305/45 18 NT05R. I didn't have time to stall the car up. Truck shoot out night when I went, a wet high 60deg outside that night.

I am going up to an ss4000. I think the yank is more efficient up top than the tci.

Yup. I know I've got at least another tenth in it too. The 2 runs it hooked I hit the limiter in 1st, and by the time I had the shift mph set right in the computer the track had gone away.

Have you noticed what the Yank 3600 flashes to on launch? Brake stall?

And what gear are you crossing the 1/8 in? I see you have the 3.45 gears..

I'm planning a 3600. I wonder what I'll have to change in the tune.

It's very hard to tell what it flashes to. RPM just.....goes up. Peak slip comes right around 3600rpm in my datalogs, so I would say it flashes to 3600. Haven't seen how high I can brake stall it.
It's crossing the 1/8 right around 6300rpm in 3rd.

HAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!! EVERYTHING John.
I've spent the last 6 days trying to get the TCC right so that all the slip is completely tuned out at part throttle. Getting it to up and downshift where I wanted, then getting the converter to lock and unlock where I wanted it to was so much trial and error it was ridiculous.
