One thing that doesn't make sense to me. Put the DA calculator back in the pocket for a moment.

12.6@112, 1.9 60'
12.7@110, 2.0 60'

If you were really trapping 112. Why not a lower ET? That...

So your first time out on just an intake/tune, and a tire. You were getting a DA corrected 117?

My car must be weak or my tune must be trash. Because I have more mods than that and I'm not even...

I'm on the fence. Look at Mishri's car. I don't see a large benefit out of the gearing. It's pretty close. And going from a 3.15 to a 4.10 ought to produce a pretty drastic difference you would...

The 6R80 has such a short first gear that it's pretty debatable whether there is a lot of value in going for much more than a 3.31 in these newer cars. Leastways that is what I've read all over the...

Yah I updated the sig.

I think his boss mani is what made up for the 700' difference in DA and the gearing is what helped him get out of the hole quicker. That's my theory anyway.

Mishri vs. Riptide

Well sad to say it but it looks like the Mishmeister is still faster than yours truly. I has a disappoint.

Both cars 6R80 automatics.

This is sadly true enough. I'm hoping it lasts long enough for me to get some attempts in before I smoke it out there. It might be OK for a while. People in the 300whp range have had the stock...

How is your car geared? If it is geared pretty tall then the 2nd gear dump is more likely to spin the clutch.

If mine won't do a burnout in 2nd even with water on the tires then there is not a...

I have some nitto NT05r drag radials. I may use your M&H though. I haven't decided. Yours are already mounted which means a straight swap of the two wheels. If I use mine I have to get the street...

So the consensus seems to be just dump it in 2nd gear then. OK. 4000 rpm?

When I need to go out and learn I'll start with 1st gear then try 2nd after I get used to this. I guess I'll bring some...

I know someone else who said his was slipping at 408whp. That sucks. I guess I'm "lucky" in the sense that mine isn't slipping yet lol.

Yes I know the stock clutch is at it's limits. YMMV. I've read of people who had it go a lot quicker than others. Depends on if you're one of the lucky ones or not.
