Fernando, how did you set up the boost by gear? I have as well and would like to do that but I always heard you had to have the micro switches

Hmm when I get closer to the car running I'll have to set it up this way.

could you give more details on this boost by gear? if i could set my boost up in each gear to the point just before it rips the tires off the ground that would be killer. right now i only have low and high boost options on the fly

i have looked into the boost by gear.. they make boost controllers that do it for you but they used to be crazy expensive. tis why i never bought one. and maniac. to answer your question about the tq. having lots of tq on a fwd car hurts you alot of the times because you cant get it to hook so you spin tires (like id do). and it doesnt matter how much power you have. if you cant get it down it means nothing. So if you high hp typically helps you in the higher rpm range and higer speeds so you acelorate harder at the higher speeds. tis why his trap speeds are so high. he pulls harder and harder as he climbs in rpm. Im just too stubborn to realize i prob have too much tq for a fwd car to ever make my car fast. lol. But as long as you can get tq to the ground and keep the high hp your car will be faster.
