Stiffer shocks, longer softer springs, and torque arms.

Whatever it is, it sort of sounds painful.

When I drive in straight line quarter mile races I shift 15 times like in the Fast and the Furious. If Paul Walker can do it and win I can't understand why I never win :(

You can just leave the gas pedal on the floor and shift... it imposes a temporary soft revlimit below the normal one to hold rpms at while you change gears.

I don't know if I have the ***** to try it though!! But yes, flatshift is a revlimiter that engages with the clutch pedal, allowing you to stay at WOT through the run.

I might just play dumb, "I didn't know it could do that, I mean stock it's in the 17's." :gay:

I thought it was something like that, I didn't know megasquirt would do that...now, since your not lifting wont you be able to hold boost between shifts?

Yeah maybe he won't notice the drag radials. Everyone has them on their first run, right?

No, you won't hold boost. You may not be moving the throttle mechanically, but you are still removing the load (with the clutch) and dropping rpm (via MS)
