Xtreme Race vs Extreme Street

I was told that they are pretty similar; and the difference is the converter locks up in certain gears in one file, and different gears in the other file. Questions is which gears with which file and does it make that much of a difference. Just wondering what one would be better as a daily driver with smoother shifting.

Converter is locked 2-5 in xtreme race, and 4-5 in xtreme street. I drive the xtreme street daily and I love it. I personally prefer the xtreme street daily but I believe some people drive the xtreme race and like it. There isn't a huge difference between the tunes but the race feels a tiny bit quicker with harder shifting.

Sounds about right. The extreme street is a bit more friendly feeling for your everyday driving, drives a lot like stock until you lay in to it... I myself prefer the X race and use it for my daily drive file, but it takes some getting used to. Nothing like like rolling along at 50 mph behind somebody, pulling out to pass and getting about half the go peddle. It doesn't down shift, stays locked up and it really digs. Puts you back in the seat. One thing takes getting used to about the Xrace if you're taking it easy accelerating and get up to 60-65 it doesn't usually drop in to the final drive gear until you let out for a sec. and then ease back in to it. Like I said takes some getting used to but once you do you'll love it.

Same thing here I'll let off after accelerating and just tap back into the pedal and then it will shift and usually chirp the tires...guess I should prolly turn down my shift pressures

Ain't that the truth. I carry 1K worth of tools, etc. daily and it still amazes me how good it feels.

I agree with everything they said above. Also the extreme race throttle is much more sensitive. at least it is in my truck

I think it goes like this. Xtreme Race is for racing and Xtreme Street is for street use.

I don't agree, my truck gets better fuel economy on Xtreme Race vs. Xtreme Street.

And I don't go around with my foot buried in the firewall either, also I don't see how fast I can go from stoplight to stoplight.

Well I was thinking Race for the track and Street for everyday driving and smoother shifting. How is the shifting on Race? Is it smooth or does it "hop" into gear?
