Twins update

Took the truck to the strip Saturday. Temp was 99 degrees on first run, down to 88 on the last run. Track is about 2800'. It was a test and tune, which was nice for trying out some tuner combos.

My trans is shot. The 2/3 shift was slow and I'm blowing right through 4th gear. The truck shifts into 4th and starts slipping, revs come up almost to redline and then it starts catching itself, finally grabs and it's time to shift into 5th. Anyway:

60' = 1.792
330' = 5.576
1/8 = 8.628 @ 81.13
1000' = 11.201
1/4 = 13.340 @ 105.78

I truely feel this set-up will runs in the 12's on fuel only, once the trans issues are taken care of. This race, I was ahead of the car next to me and on the 3/4 shift he passed me, after trans hooked back up, I again passed him. Shows had much time I'm losing on the shift.

Honey, I need some more money! :evil: Eric, I'll be calling next week for ideas and hardware.
