Re: Help to get me in the 9's

4wd low is for offroading mainly, u cant drag race or race on 4wd low period. And it probably wont even let u go past 30mph, I might be wrong, someone correct me if so.

Re: Help to get me in the 9's

If you dont have a tune, i would assume a Predator and a (CMR) tune would get you in there.

I can run an 1/8th mile in 4WD low, i just have to figure out why my gears wont change from 2nd to 3rd without it redlining.

It would be good if you didnt do that.
4 lo is for climbing stuff (up & down)and you dont want it up shifting when you are trying to climb down something,using the engine to hold you back.

I go to the dragstrip about twice a month. and I'm looking to be in the 9's the next time i go. Keep in mind I drag RWD until i can figure out why when i'm in 4WD my car wont shift from 2nd for a few seconds.
Say WHAT?!?!?!?!
