Nice video King!

That 1st to 2nd shift seems to hang a bit. I've noticed mine does the same thing when left in sport/normal mode. Seeing your's shift the same makes me feel better ;)

I've been sing manual lately and bump the shifter as I pass through 6300 RPM. It'll consistently shift at 6700 if I hit it right.

Thanks again for sharing...

AWESOME Video. Thanks for sharing. Sounded nice. Agree with Kid it about the 1st to 2nd shift. Mines does that as well.

I noticed one thing about the way you staged. Its hard to tell cause I couldnt break it down by frame but you may have rolled farther into the 2nd staging light than you had to. The pre stage and staged lights both lit up pretty quick after one another. Try a slower approach next time you go. once that pre stage light is lit inch up as slow as humanly possible until the 2nd one lights up. It could be worth a .10-.20 of a second. I remember reading that with a car like ours (mid 15's) you can decrease you ET by up to .300 of a second if you shallow stage as much s possible vs. a deep stage. It just gives you a couple extra inches head start before the timer starts but the slower your car the more ET you can knock off.

Next Tuesday is shaping up to be clear with highs in the 50's. might be a good day to take her to 42.

15.66 using manual mode, in sport shift it was 15.60.The 60 was a .143 light 66 was .434, deep staged on video pass.There is a short distance from water box to line plus you are on a hill comming from box to line.
