New video of my GTA

I made a video today of a moderate launch run on a short road. Turn up the volume and check it out.

Re: New video of my GTA

You know, the more I watch the videos I made today, the more I think I'm not getting WOT due to the shift points being 500 RPM short and it not seeming as fast as it should. I think my throttle cable needs shimmed up because we noticed after the superram install that it really required a good stomp to get WOT.
I'll look into it today and see if I am right .

I think that if you do that, say with a better servo, and tv valve(maybe a better converter ) that it will help you with those shift points. I know it did in my car.

Sounds like you need to adjust your TV cable.

Re: New video of my GTA

I do have a super servo in it that makes it shift much firmer than it did stock.

That doesn't matter for the shift points, especially when they are that low. Check your TV cable.

Re: New video of my GTA

If you don't know how, let a TRANS shop do it. Trust me on this one. It is VERY easy to get the pressure off far enough to burn up your trans in three or four weeks...

Ask me how I know.

Re: New video of my GTA

I read in the trusty rusty Haynes book it says push in on the detent button and slide the cable up till it stops. I did and my cable slid up and at full throttle the cable is as tight as a piano string as suggested, is this wrong?
