Where do I start lol.
I'll stop treating you like a noob when you post accurate info!
You say my box shifts in a 0.000000000001 sec power cut when it actually takes around 5,000,000,000 times longer than that! ie 0.05 secs. Now thats not exactly "waiting for gears" but if you stack up the 5 shifts, thats 0.25 secs off the power. The Jerico, lenco, 4eat etc will have 0.0 time off power. So please dont say they are the same.
I can't comment on the Evo trans so lets keep the conversation to the Impreza trans. Anyone running low 8's on a std case 4wd manual trans?
Regarding lifting front wheels and the effects on traction, your 4eat is different as its modified to be permanent RWD with a FWD clutch (but you knew that huh?) thats why you don't lose traction lifting the fronts.
My traction issues (if you can call 1.34 60' on DOT's an issue) relate more to the track prep, they only glue the first 60' so you get there ok then break loose. I ran an 8.61@154 on 19psi boost (770 flywheel power) and then ran 8.42 @ 170 with 28psi boost (1010 flywheel) so go figure where the power was layed down lol
I have the ECU set to shift gears but when you have to pedal it through the breaking traction with all 4 wheels it can get a bit messy so its no hardship to tug the lever, same shift speed and no air bottle to carry! Best of all, less to go wrong.
No hard feelings ole timer
