went to the track last nite...
the AOD was a nice improvement. i drove to the track and switched to the slicks/skinnys and first pass shifted from 1st to OD and let out, ran a 7.62 @ 77 w/ 1.57 60', next pass went from 1st straight to drive and let out, ran a 7.42 @80 w/1.56, then i figured out the AOD shuffle... sort of and ran a 7.30 @93.5 w/ 1.60, last run i decided to put it in D and let the trans shift on its own, backed it up with another 7.30 @ 93.3 w/ 1.65. all in all in tickled pink! the car ran great and still has a/c, ps, pb, pw, pdl, cruise!
the convertor locking up is killing the car, it looses around 1000-1500 rpms (ill have to review the logs to know for sure) when going from 2nd to drive/DD (happens at the same time) next steps will include a custom convertor w/o lockup and a silverfox valve body, either a trutrac or detroit and possibly a 3.27 gear. i think the car has a 7oh with a little more tuning... but i think the above and a tubular K-member will put me in the 6's nicely!
it was a good nite.
