Just loaded my SRL from Matt

And I must say it is a blast to drive. The truck spools quicker and it doesn't feel like it is working as hard to get going. I would expect to get better mileage if I could keep my foot out of it. This thing rocks.

If I keep my foot in it I get crazy high EGTs too, I need to get my fuel pressure gauge hooked up so I can see what it is doing.

I just loaded mine up yesterday. Haven't been able to get on it much cuz it's been raining for 2 days straight

How does yours shift? Does it break the tires loose super easy on dry pavement?

I rolled into it then floored it and it broke loose on the shift this afternoon when the roads dried out.

I got a bit sideways this morning from a light when I tried to leave it in my normal fashion. It rolled fine then as the boost came on it broke loose.

It is really easy to drive and not break it loose. It is almost like you have to want it to spin to do it.

The shifts are firm and were kinda jerky before I changed the revs per mile. After the tire size change it still snaps the shifts and they are firm but they don't feel like they jerk.

Awesome!! It finally stopped raining here so should get to play a bit after work!

What converter are you using to calculate your revs per mile?

I did some research on here and there happened to be a guy running the exact tire I am and it only adjust in 5 rev increments so I used what he did. 35X12.5X20 Toyo MT 595 rev/mile.

This is the converter I use, I've found it's the most accurate.
