The x-race tune has more power that you can feel by the seat of pants,but is also has diffrent shift points and TC lock/unlock.

If you notice when your driving around with the x-street the TC locks in 3rd gear or around 40mph.but don't unlock untill you tap the breaks or coming down from speed and hit 40mph then you can feel the TC unlock.
So lets say if your doing 60mph and want to pass somebody you either have to tap on the break pedal real quick to unlock TC so the truck down shifts or lay on the go pedal (alot) and the motor will lug down,pump out some smoke until the TC unlocks and down shifts, then it takes off.

The x-race will lock the TC in 2nd gear and stay locked untill you tap the break pedal. So if your using it as a daily driver you need to learn how to drive that tune. So lets say your driving down the road at 45mph and come apon a hill, if you don't tap the break pedal to unlock the TC, your motor will lug down.
Some members prefer the x-race as a daily driver,but I prefer the x-street.
If your looking for a tune to beat someone from a stop then the x-race is the file to use, I feel it has more low end power than the x-street. With the x-race tune from a roll, then you need learn to tap the break pedal to unlock the TC so the motor don't lug down.
The answer to you question is yes it is alot more aggresive if you know how to drive it to your advantage.

i love my x-street and just by driving it have realized the shift points and TC lock up set up. I never realized though about the tap your brake thing, so thanks for point that out. The one thing that I do realize is that it will not shift into OD until a certain MPH. I don't know the MPH off the top of my head but lets say 50 MPH and 1750 RPM's if I don't speed up it will stay in 5th all day long. Just something I noticed and found out quickly. Not bad just if you want to drive smart and control your truck it's good to know.
