flitecontrol Damn lance, I was gonna get a couple of these things for each of my vehicles (ok, maybe just one for the Rebel) and now you've let everybody know about 'em! Now there's gonna be a run on rocket motors, the supply will go down and the price will go up! Thanks man!

Once we pass and move back in front (or not) do we kick it back up into 5th, maintain speed and bring the rpms back to cruise? Whats the benefit of that over staying in 5th and giving it more twist?

If your going 80 mph and you down shift, you end up going backwards, or you redline!

lance328 This will take care of the problem, should reach 200mph without damaging the engine. Just slap on a couple of theese puppies and your off to the races.
