torque management....In simplest terms, over the years I've tested stalling the motor (1800 - 2200 rpms) before the lights turn green and just nailing the pedal at go and have always been slower when stalling up...

you confirmed what I just posted..

I think I'm starting to understand this...what I've noticed on tow/haul mode is that it makes my RPMs higher by about 700-1,000 RPMs, even during normal driving. So that means that tow/haul mode would be a good thing to have on, right?

What confuses me is why in the world would Dodge put a 2600 stall torque convertor on a truck that starts spinning by 2,000 RPMs when stalling up?

Chefred, how big is the shot?




As far as launching, DO NOT PUT IT ON THE CONVERTER. Its not like launching a clutch car where coming out of the hole at "max" RPM keeps you from bogging, torque converters are ment to get your truck off the line and they do their job great! Give it enough gas to get it off idle (like maybe 300 rpms) hold it there and dump the brake/mash the gas when you see the third amber light. (assuming were tlaking drag strip)

Idk it putting it in 5 and going for it makes 3rd gear really "2nd prime", but if it doesnt i would shift it myself and just bump it into the next gear every time it shifts. With the pedal on the floor it isnt going to short shift you and letting "3rd gear" bridge the gap between 2nd and "actual" 3rd.

burnouts help, but if you over heat street tires they tend to get a little slimey, youll have to experament with that.

Just because its a 2600 stall doesnt mean you start to move at 2600, dont crucify me for this as ive always had clutch cars and never fully understood autos, but its more of a when the converter is fully engaged. Kinda like slipping the clutch on a car, you move before the pedal is all the way out, but your not putting 100% of the power through the driveline

When do you hit the switch, are you hitting it early or late into the run? I've been watching some of your vids. I remember the little Dakota that was running you sounded like he hit a little too early a couple of times unless the sound was something else. I'm guessing he hit it and turned it back off and then turned it back on but not sure, lol!
