Re: Xtreme Race

this weekend????? are you coming up the following as well. October 4th is all truck nationals, should be lots of trucks up there and good times.


I have been running the xtreme race for at least 10k so far and love it. The shifting does take a bit of getting used to but its great once your used to it. Gotta roll into the throttle (becomes second nature) and when in OD on the highway and you need it to downshift or unlock the converter just a tap of the break will get it to stop lugging.

One thing I have been noticing, I love the midrange, but that seems to be the most times where I can notice puking or smell a hint of coolant. If I mash it and hold it wide open it seems to be ok. Not sure whats up with that if the cylinder pressures are just that much higher in the midrange than when wide open, but seems to be.

Yea I think best way to describe the xtreme street shifting is it likes to hold gears both up and down, if you start trying to push it lightly at like 1/2 throttle it seems to build up good and then hang a bit. I just get the sense that it just wants to rip but your not giving it the throttle input to go, then it don't wanna downshift too much either with the converter locked, but a tap of the throttle unlocks it and can take off again (mostly a highway driving issue)

Sweet looking forward to how your truck does, and hopefully see ya at the truck nationals show. Its a good time and should be able to get in a bunch of passes and watch some good running trucks.

Thanks man, those Jersey guys were giving me some crap of all the bugs and dirt on it when I pulled in lol but was a good time. I heard from a few that they saw the trucks but never found us. I spent most of the time walking around the show but I am pretty sure there was always someone sitting behind Buff's truck (light blue crew cab long bed) Yea for Epping even if your not planning on racing just come into the pits anyways, I learned that lesson last year.

Re: Xtreme Race

You can email Eric and let him know what the trans is doing and he can get it taken care of for you. Mine felt a little funny to me when I first got the tune, like the converter would lock too early and then make a gear change right after. He emailed me another program and it shifted perfect after that.

Re: Xtreme Race

Do you have a lift in the read? Bigger blocks? My truck shifted funny and I looked and it was axle wrapping really bad. I am stock height too!

I didn't even think of that, I've got about 3 inches of lift in the front and 2.5 in the rear... Only reason I don't think that's the problem is because it was shifting really good on xtreme street...I emailed eric and just waiting for reply.

Re: Xtreme Race

My X Race shift with the TC locked and shakes the whole truck but damn does it move. It chirps the tires into 3rd.
