Subfloor, that thing runs and shifts flawlessly!
And flat-out hauls ***, too.
BTW: I can't believe that you can actually get some use out of first gear with that 3.42 rear gear and a ~26"? tire in the rear, since supposedly 3.42s make first gear in a 6l80 useless.

Thanks.

It's a little under 26" but contrary to popular opinion it's not even remotely useless. Granted, it does shift pretty quickly after the car launches but that only helps with my 60ft times so I'm not complaining.

Default First hurdle accomplished

10.0's in an upcoming race as I predicted in my first post of the thread:





My light was terrible as I launched it much higher than usual.

Holy ****! That thing is literally a hair's breadth away from a 9 second run. Just a puff of wind on the tail would've pushed that thing across the 9 second barrier!

Buddy of mine told me after the fact there was a bit of a headwind at the time. It stopped a short time later but by then it had started getting noticeably warmer.

Damn that's hailing ***. Ill bet if you pull the belt it will put it right in the nines. I wish I could get my A6 to shift like that.
