    It just went right at launch and got out of the groove and lost traction. I did find that the pressure was a bit high at 20 lbs, I reduced it to 18.5, we also readjusted the ARB adding more preload to the PS. The next pass it went straight. I also changed lanes so I honestly don't know for sure what caused it. I also noticed that the DS rear tire spun a bit inside the rim and the PS did not, which could have contributed, although it only spun about an inch so I wouldn't think it would make that much of an impact.

    So what now? I have a new convertor on its way that will allow me to leave about 1000-1200 rpm higher and build some decent boost. My current convertor only stalls at 3000-3100 rpm which gives me about 5 psi at launch. ProTorque is building me a custom 10" convertor with a billet stator and mechanical diode w/ multi-disc lockup. It should stall b/w 4000-4400 rpm and hopefully build 10 psi or so, should be a nice addition and if all goes well it will allow me to leave with enough power to get into the 1.2x 60' range. The next thing will be bead locks, which I cannot afford at the moment..Weld is very proud of those!

    Last but certainly not least, I'd like to put a BIG THANK YOU out to LITO, tuner extraordinaire, for all the countless tunes and for working his magic to make this happen!

    Thanks to you! It has been long and with a few failures on the way but it has been rewarding.

    Are you still running stock heads/followers/lash adjusters or are the heads modified?

    That car was on a pass! Lol, I should have said that earlier.
    Your car makes me feel great about 4r swapping mine, seeing one go that fast is awesome. Lito said this was all done on the stock PCM, where are you shifting it at, have you hit any walls related to RPM?
