if ur down around 28psi hot the sensor will come on again and not allow you to go over 5k. really sucks.

interesting...

thing with steet tires is a lot of times lowering your pressure really doesn't do much good at all... in fact can end up hurting you...

actually the launch seemed to get better with the lower pressure...just wouldn't let me run then. but then comes the problem of how we are going to put drag radials or slicks on with low tire pressure... is there a way to bypass the system so it doesn't cause a disruption in rpm?
