That's not terrible DA. Needs to get a few passes in.

My truck has been pretty consistent since it was new. Maybe a little gain, but nothing huge.

Mine shifts before the 1320 marker too.

do you guys shift down to avoid 4th?... I run 28" dr's and have 4.56 gears. if i just let it run out, it will shift into 4th at the end thus giving me slower times. i manual shift mine by going 1-2-D shifting at 6100 rpms (completing them about 6600 rpms), then while in D, watch the tach and when it hits 5000 rpms, shift back down to 2...this will hold 3rd through the traps..when sprayin I get to 109 mph and on motor apprx 104... I won brackets last sunday running consistent 13.1's @ 103...



I beat the SRT10 in the finals..

I think they are trying to stay stock, and if they hold it in 3rd they will hit the rev limiter unless they use a tuner to raise the rev limiter.

BTW, what size tires are you running on the front??

Ha, it's not that I'm trying to stay stock, it's just that no one will release a tuner!

And I tried to hold third last night at the strip. Won't make with 4.10s.
