Good question, read a few threads down I hit last weekend with a 1st Gen(9.96s @146.5mph) and before that thought I was limited to 145mph before the limiter but actually got almost 147mph and never hit the limiter. Remember a 1st gen has Higher Gearing edit lower gearing... so I would think or presume you may need a 5th gear change because a 3rd Gen seems to have higher gearing stock a 1st gen with a 100mph 1st gear is a must....... but really think you need to go aggressive at this point to make sure you HAVE to change to 5th gear.

sorry Tony...forgot to mention if you didn't know already I was at -1/+1 from the stock 1st Gen 10R gearing and Never go into 5th gear or I will loose time and maybe MPH because I am close to redline just before the 1/4.

I guess I'll try the 40 on the back again tomorrow, It's not helping my 60, but I didn't really give it enough time, I broke two clutch plates the other night, so didn't really have enough seat time with it, all my passes are usually with -1 and stock 41, I'd love to run my 43, but then she's to wheelie happy(maybe with longer chain) See the problem is, the air is starting to get better here and that means that with the stock 41 she's gonna hit the limiter sooner so I'm thinking this will not help.

why would you care about your 60? ...the 1/4 mile time is what counts as you know and it doesn't hurt to have a great top speed to boot....we have even a video on this site with sucky 60 but the 10R doing over 150mph and very low 9s(with some race gas and full system I believe)..... but you can do it.

60 ft time is directly related to your ET. mph is usually the same.

My comment was based on my mentor the Pro Star Champ Ruthless Racing and he said to watch the 330 the 60 is not as important....I believe him I have sucky 60ft but do alright in the 330.
