I made 13 runs between 5:45pm and 10:15pm...only once did the tranny have a problem where it would not shift when I hit the button.

I really thought this car would run closer to 13.2 or something around those numbers with the Tune and DCI. The car was consistant with times as low as 13.694 @ 102.42 and as high as 13.940 @ 101.32. I ran the car in DS/manual mode break boosting to about 2krpm and shifting around 6200rpm. I tried letting the tranny do the shifting but my trap time was lower. Below are some of my numbers please let me know if you see anything wrong or if I am expecting too much from my car
