Never mind I figured it out lol, I haven’t messed with this thing a ton, 107.5 mph pretty fucking solid, shows she’s making some good power

it shifts pretty fast and hard too with the tune , look at the G graph , you have positive G during shifts . truck has better acceleration between shifts

the G's would go up right AFTER the shift, not during.
My thoughts exactly.

During a shift, there is a break in power. You can't accelerate harder when there is no power being applied. Even a DCT has a small break in power delivery. The bump in the G meter is from the jerk when it hits the next gear.

But I agree, these newer transmissions with programming shift very hard. I had to get a tune for my 2015 GT to soften the trans for normal street tires. As well as when on switchback roads. Nothing like the trans shifting hard, spinning street tires, while not pointed straight. We all know what happens next in a Mustang. lmao

I fear for your 10sp

If I tune mine and it does that, i'm asking them to dial it back. Lol
It only does that in performance mode, he left the trans settings stock in normal drive mode

Welp I backed up my other 13.7, but with a shittier 60ft but higher trap. I can only think the intake/gm maf calibration was worth something as I'm trapping 100+ now and was 97-98.5 ish prior.


I can't wait for some warm/dry salt-free pavement and pull a 1.7/1.8 60ft and see where it goes.

1quick 1quick did you ever dragy the bike?
I did once it was pretty cold and I had to feather it hard 1st through 3rd because I couldn’t get the front end to stay down, I think it would be faster on gravel so I can spin the tire
