Thanks I will try that next weekend when I go back to the track. Also right towards the end of the runs it shifts into 3. Should I place it in 2 and just leave it there? Also everone says to increase my shift pressure but I have it turned up to 25% but it does not seem to effect the shift at all. At WOT throttle it seems to shift at about 6000 rpm but was told by scriming that are gauges are off a little from the factory. According to most dynos I have seen the power starts to fall off past 5500 so wouldnt you want to shift there. Only problem with that is I cant adjust the RPMs it shifts at, just MPH. Any suggestions.

25% is the max setting on the XCAL2, so leave it there. Also put your car in drive, with OD off (this puts it in 4th gear). That is how you want to launching. What RPM are you trapping at?

Yes, I would remove 2MPH from your 1-2 shift, and add 2MPH to your 2-3 and 3-4 shift. Make sure your OD is off on your runs. Its possible that your car shifted into 5th on that pass.

Ok I will try that also this weekend. How do you feel about a used auburn LSD? I know I should buy new gears but what about the LSD by itself. Also are nittos good drag radials?

I'm not a fan of anything used in the rear end, but have heard of people getting used LSD's that work well. As for DR's, I run the M&H cause it is a 28in tall DR and lowers my effective gear ratio. But I'm switching to MT's next season. Most guys at the track don't do Nitto DR's that I have talked to. Everyone swears by MT's though.
