Had to share my results from last nights test and tune!
R/T: .402
60': 1.848
330: 5.186
1/8: 7.854
MPH: 92.52
1000: 10.134
1/4: 12.052
MPH: 118.12

I have never done better than a 12.2x, so this absolutely demolishes that! I "run what I brung". No suspension changes. On street tires.

I added a prototype blowfish racing part that made my power shifting dead nuts reliable, which helped me focus on the rest. I just can't get over how well this thing works! I will have 10 units available for beta testing by the end of this month. Can't wait to see other people's results!
 
Cool. This must be the top secret new item you mentioned a while back.

In for beta piece. Glad to see you got a good time, guess my DWS's are no good for hooking.
Brandon, there wasn't anything I could do to "launch" the car last night either. Right after you took off, I decided to go off idle (gas and clutch at the same time) and that got me from pitiful 2.1-2.2 down to 3 back to back 1.8x's. Surprisingly, it also helped me keep traction power shifting 1-2.

Someone needs to loan me some DR's or slicks!! This thing is deep 11's with some hook!
 
Glad to see then you were spinning also, feel like maybe they hadn't prepped the track properly, last time I went I could launch at 2k and be fine but last night even with TC it would spin.
 
I was launching at 2100 and it was bogging down bad!
Too bad I didn't know how to change the launch control rev limiter at that time.

Steve, thanks for the drag racing tutorial and experience, which made me hate my shifter. Best part was my fail burnouts 8)

Wait a minute........I wait all winter long for summer to arrive, and now you have me wanting summer to end. Can you at least give us some type of info. on this shifter product. Is it easy to install.

ha! yeah, i am with you! i want this thing ready now...but all good things are worth the wait ;)

it will be easy to install. hardest part will be getting under the car if you don't have a lift. that is really all i can tell you until the patent is complete.

I just ordered a Whiteline insert from you. If you need another power shifting Beta tester, drop that thing in the box. I never take my foot off the gas.

I rarely lock out of a gear. It's more likely that I will do 2-5 or 3-6 shift. 3-6 feels brutal on the clutch. For the record, I haven't ran faster than 12.0 either. I have a buddy who does it routinely by riding the clutch on the launch. I keep messing with the launch control instead of riding the clutch.

the new part would help with that issue too.

Keep me in the loop. I'm impressed with your speedy shipping. I got home from work today to find my white line insert awaiting me. I showed it to my wife. Even she was impressed. Thanks again.
 
Ran a 12.5, 114.2mph last night, not bad considering the last time on the drag strip was 25 years ago. Definitely room for improvement.
