Extreme Race, problems maybe??

I got the Extreme Race for Innovative about two weeks ago. I can nail it going down the road and get up to like 32 pounds of boost, but when I do a boosted laucnh it will never make over 20 pounds going down the track. Is this normal? I have a buddy that races cars and I took him for a ride and he said that he thought that the Spartan Street tune was pulling harder than the Extreme Race I am running now. When I run his mustang gt I beat him by like 10 lengths with Spartan street but I only beat him by like 2 running this Extreme Race file. I don't know if everything i right, maybe some of you could let me know if this sounds right.

Just ask for a new xtreme race file and tell innovative you're only boosting to 20lbs. If it isn't the file they will help get it figured out.

I've always wondered about that myself. I'm not sure what the cause is, but sometimes I'll see 32 psi at WOT, others I'll see 25 psi max. Either way the truck doesn't feel any slower. I'm guessing it just has something to do with the load put on the motor for whatever driving conditions you happen to be in at the time... Something definately sounds funny if your spartan street file is faster. I know some trucks react differently to different tuning, but that does sound odd. I'd give Eric a call and ask him about it. You could also PM or email him from here. He usually answers all PM's and emails late at night. I don't think the guy ever sleeps...

Which one of Spartans Street files are you comparing it to? I have ran most of those and Xrace. Xrace pulls way harder than most of them
