He saw me sort of take off at the line and he decided to catch up and have fun. I saw him coming up fast at about 50mph and i put the peddle down when he got to my rear end in the lane next to me. He obviously was pounding it way before i did but he never got past my back wheel and i was walking away from him at 100.

I'm totally stock and im assuming he was too. Nothing special but fun none the less.

Easy now I already admitted that it was no big deal and that I am very new to all this. I've only had my truck a few months and i have never been into fast cars or engines before in my life until now. Still learning... Simmer down.

I've read conflicting info on this topic. Last thing I read was that it doesn't matter if you are in 3 or D because we rarely get to 4th anyways. Does it really drive differently from a dig in 3 vs drive?

Most will tell you that it does not drive different... It is just safer for the trans..

3 is driect drive (which means DRIVE to the lay person) and it should be thought of as drive and the trans is at is BEST when the gear selector is in DIRECT DRIVE, it routes the fluid in the vavle body to maximize the clutch application and makes the trans the most efficient and stable that it can be......

D is over drive (which means NOT A RACING GEAR to the lay person) and it should be thought of as ,exactly that, OVER DRIVE not RACING GEAR....the valve body fluid flow in D is that of over drive to make the trans operate in a smoother and softer manner which creates slip in the clutch packs (in our trucks with the HIGH HEAT and WEIGHT) and thus causes UNDO or PREMATURE WEAR....it also creates the slip/bank shift sequence that is so HARMFUL to these trannys.....

it is a combined 1-2 punch combo on these trans that is causing them to die early....i killed 3 trannys becuase of operater error and most all these that i've seen die could have been avoided to a large degree......

the killers:
HEAT - get alvin's fuggin cooler on now if you do not already have it or a reasonable facsimile

WEIGHT - CAN'T DO SHIT ABOUT IT it is what it is........DEAL WITH IT and CHANGE THE AREAS YOU CAN....

Gear Selection - keep the trans in direct drive EVERY TIME YOU HAMMER IT PERIOD......EVERY TIME, not just at the track or when i want to race or what not......EVERY TIME YOU HAMMER THIS TRANS IT SHOULD BE IN DIRECT DRIVE (drive for the lay person) and that gear selection on our gear selector is 3......GOT IT 3

Wow I had no idea. So you're saying I should be driving in 3 all the time except when highway driving? Or 3 just when I know I'm going to hammer it?

I've heard conflicting things as well. I know it's harmful even on a built trans to downshift from OD to 2nd or 1st instead of going to 3rd first. Not sure if it matters at all going from a dig though.

I will only throw it in 3 if I'm at a stop or under 10mph and gonna race. Else, I leave it in D because I don't like manually downshifting on the trans.

Hey, those 3.6 liter v6 sedans can run mid 14's stock. My wife had a Saturn Aura (pos) and it wasn't slow. Regardless, picking on them is probably not woth the gas. Fun though.
