Bad day at the track

Ok i'm convinced my truck hates me! Took it to the track yesterday (smoking a new 6.7 on the way) and only got to make 1 pass (apparently some mud fell off the truck when i launched) anyways the truck didn't run that good anyway it only went 14.00 @ 96. My dad said it didn't smoke at all not even when i staged it, and for some reason it never locked the converter so it only made around 35psi. Then on the way home the tranny shifted really weird, sometimes finding a false neutral and other times being really reluctant to shift even with a light foot then it would bang into gear when it finally shifted, but other times shift normal. Then drove it later that night and it seemed to be ok: The only tune I've ever ran is the 275, anyone experiance anything like this or have any suggestions? Thanks for your input

Mine is acting dumb also, seems to get stuck in 2nd. then other time it will shift REALLY bad, it seems like it goes into neutral then bangs hard into the gear.

I yes I drive it hard for the most part. I am going to reaload the V3, or now that its getting warmer I may even try the V2 again...... we will see

Yes, the adaptive learning will change a number of things on these trucks and tranny shift/performance is the biggest one.

Mine did this stock. Seems to happen every so often.. i posted some details about how to get it to do it anytime you want somewhere, on one of these forums.. Happens tuned or not .. must be a 5R110 issue on these trucks.

But as powerstroker said, and many others, these things learn your driving pattern. As you're heading to the track WOT it a for a little while thru all the gears and she'll be just fine at the track.

I wasn't taking it easy before this. For some reason i can't seem to keep my foot out of it being tuned. The thing that really concerned me was the truck wasn't smoking not even off the start so who knows. Makes me feel better that it's happened to others to though

if you did a boosted launch its probably not gonna smoke that much, especially in cold weather.
