No lift shift?

Just curious if my presumption is correct ...

If I set my rev limit in neutral to about where my RPM's drop to during shifting, it should act like a mock NLS, correct?

I also realize that this will screw with my launch RPM but I can deal with that I think.

He means he can keep it floored while shifting. You know the feature that camero has now?

^Correct.


And I think it will work, maybe.
Just wrote a tune and went out to test it. For some reason below 40mph my limiter is 5,500 (which is where I have the neutral limiter set at) in neutral. But above that it's 8,000rpm (which is where my in gear limiter is set at).
I think this may have something to do with not having the other clutch switch in the car (it's in the other car, they have to share, LOL). Red switch that sits on top of the peddle.

I'll have to install the red one and test again tomorrow before I hit the track.


BTW, I can't flat foot shift @8K. I tried. grind grind grind in she goes and clutch slips for a bit then grabs. OOPSIE.
