Default trans brake

Well I got a converter (bolt together PTC) though it was tight. I could not hold the car back on a foot brake to build boost. I finally hooked up the trans brake yesterday, and took it for a ride today. (it is hot 90 and humid)
I put it on the brake, ( I only have it on 8psi) mashed the throttle with is a few seconds I was at the 8 psi. I let the brake go just to see and melted the tires. It is amazing how power loosens the converter!!

Crazy when you think about it. My experience...When you get it right convertor is worth 2-3 tenths. Another thing a computer system ( probably not for what your doing then again maybe) is the best tunning system. So much information once you learn it itís the biggest money and time saver ever.

If I had the money, I would add a bunch of electronics to control stuff. It is had to keep track of everything while controlling the car.

Default rain driving

Went to the car show tonight, guess I did not look at the weather. Hung out a few hrs, on the south shore of Long Island, it was nice. On the way home to the north shore, wicked rain. Skinnies, drag radials in the rear, handled like a champ!. Heavy car stuck the road better than I thought. The spool is fun on turns.
I felt great about the car, I feel it is a real deal street car. I patted her on the rear bumper once I got it back in the garage. Love driving the car.

Thank God my car is not painted, it's a mess and it will stay that way for a little bit. I hate cleaning cars!
