That may be, but it certainly doesn't explain why all the Rams with stock TM setting are not breaking and ones with tranny tuning are dropping like flies.
Anyone I know of with a 4G Hemi who's attempted to max out the TCM tables in the CMR software has met with failure eventually.

The stock clutches are just not capable of the holding power required to keep them from slipping under increased power loads.
and the stock pump/valve body are not capable of high enough pressure to force those crap clutches enough to grab without slipping.
Slip = burnt frictions = transmission failure.

Ask the guy who's ripped open dozens of Dodge transmissions, Tuning them only works if you Build them up first!

There's many valid points. I've pulled three transmissions out of mine and I'm sure there will be more. But every one that I've gone through have been driver . Everytime was the overdrive clutches from flooring it in overdrive at around 65 on the highway, I have raced this truck for four years and probably made 2000+passes in the mid 8's 1/8 mile and never once had problems with any of my transmissions

Am I misunderstanding you,you took out your trans 3 times and then said no problems with your trans.

No problems from drag racing, every time it went was from od clutches burning up on highway pulls. On two of the transmissions I actually drove around in 1st ,2nd and 3 rd for 2 months like normal around town and and at the strip. Acctually ran my best of 8.55 with my last trans with no overdrive after I limped it to the track at 50mph lol. All three trans were OD Clutche failure like most are

Thanks now I understand.thats why I always say put the trans in the gear you want before you nail it and shift it manually.I believe they last much longer that way.

Yes sir. You have anymore plans for the truck before this fall? I'm looking forward to seeing what your truck will do with a converter and tune in good air

Went back to island dragway last night and had a great time.me and my son with his 2012 ram and a nephew with a 2013 F150 5.0 rcsb 2wd.
On my first pass I raced a 4 door Viper truck and won the race to his surprise.On my second and third races I ran the F150 and won both of those in spite of my nephew who always red lights me and laughs about it.who's laughing know.my last pass of the night I shifted from 2 to fourth by hitting the button twice by mistake and still beat him.Going by my numbers up to the point of my ****up,my pass should have been around 14.12 or so.
Also I took the air grabber off and gave it to my son and the bully dog tune out,I can't see running parts that don't make me faster,also ran my stock 20" street tires.
