How to race with an Auto 2WD

Hey Powerstroke Pals,

I've got my '06 F250 with the 2WD 3.73 Limited Slip. I've got all the gauges and the SCT programmer running the Looney Tune from DJ. I'm new to racing with an automatic and need some advice. I usually go out to the track every Wednesday night to watch the fun and now that I've got everything I need, I'd like to get out there as well.

Maybe a few of ya'll can help me with instructions on how to launch, the safe way to build boost, and information at what RPM's I can expect the tranny to shift. Right now I've got my red-line set at 4150, so let me know if that's fine or if it should be higher or lower!

Thanks guys and have a great day!

Sergio

You should practice enough to see at what RPM will you take off without breaking loose. That will give you the best of both worlds in traction and boosted launch. as far as redline, I am not sure what you should set it at.

I also locked out the OD on my runs but was only topping out at 80 ish on a stock truck and locking out the OD kept my truck pulling thru the finish instead of downshifting...

oh, and make sure you're the first one to stage so you can get your boost built and can concentrate on the tree!
