First night at the drags and man was I bummed out. The best I could pull was a 16 @ 80 something miles an hour. I just felt like something was wrong cause I know it's felt faster than that. I checked out the records on my attitude display and it showed 46% slip wow. I wonder how fast it could be with a good tranny in it. I'm still a few bucks away from the ATS I've been dreaming about, so I think I'll stay of the track for a while. What trannys are you guys running, and what kind of improvements have you seen?
Thanks all :93C_peelo




P.S. I did manage to beat the '96 SS Impala that my buddy has been bragging about:bow: :dodge

Mine was done locally but it's basically a fully built Suncoast. Same ingredients. I LOVE IT!!! Huge huge difference!!! You'll see your slippage go to less than 5% with the hot unlock on the edge. It makes a big difference in getting your horses to the ground. You are probably losing about 50 -100 horses with that much slip.

I have a full Billet Goerend, They have a great warranty, though I don't think you'll ever have to use it, and Outstanding customer service. I also had them install a little box they just came out with called the Shift Enhancer. It has three levels Daily, Tow, Race. It controls your line pressure, so you can have the best of both worlds, press a button when you want to play around a bit and have really firm positive shifts, or press it again and have a little less aggressive shifts when you just want to cruise to work. Man I LOVE IT!!! 20lb. 4wheel drive boosted launches on the HOT mode are sooooo fun! Watch out though, you'll break your neck, not your tranny! :93C_peelo

there have been a few guys here have bad luck with ats so nobody but me here likes them. Oh well I have had them in both of my powerstrokes and never had any problems. We thought we did one time and they were ready to send another tranny out before I even got it to my uncles shop.

Fords, Honda 4wheelers, and ATS tranny the 3 things I gotta haveLOL

I love my DTT transmission and have friends also having good luck with them but have also heard good about suncoast trans I went with DTT cause can get it fix or warranty if ever needed in case it causes trouble hopefully it wont I would keep this in mind when deciding also if its a aftermarket trans shop they should have a truck there for you to drive to see if you like the way there trans performs

Hey man does it smoke alot more with the Hot unlock?? cause i gota send mine back to Edge if i get it because its not new enough, and is it worth it to spend the extra $300?
