last night i took my truck out to the track for the first time. my et's 14.3 @ 104mph. the truck is derating when i first launch (a stutter). when i hot brake it starts to spool up and then derates to 2000 rpm. what do i need to do?

do you have your edge limits shut off so it doesn't defuel or anything so you can run as hard as you want. Those are still some good times

4wd, when the truck derates it has hit 20 psi then backs to 5 psi.

A BD RAD eliminates torque managment. What this allows you to do is power brake and build boost with out defueling.

Racer
Anti
Defueler

the smarty kills the top end thats why i hate it but it removes the tourqe management to about 80 percent so its a win loss the bd rad just removes the tq management without the loss of topend
