    Whats up with your 1/8th vs 1/4 trap this year vs 2011/2012? That is the only interesting thing I can see beyond the fact that your gearing/tire combos would be hard to choose between timeslip wise.

    I wonder if your transmission will be happier as well...Wondering if those shockloads not only break axles but crack bearing plates.

    Thanks everyone, I'm just glad it's finally starting to run well again, LOL!

    The 24.5's rip the tires thru 1 and 2 where the 26's actually stuck top of 1st and in 2nd. This really affected the 330' and 1/8th more than anything.

    Yes, parts are much happier with the 24.5's, I contribute most of the carnage to the 26's/twin disk one-two punch

    Well, not exactly :/ I STILL have some sort of bearing noise on throttle that somehow gets silent off throttle... Not sure where to look next. Trans seems to drive/shift OK tho, LOL!

    You are avoiding the 2 step on purpose right? It was hard to tell what your launch strategy was. I can also tell that you don't have any flat shifting enabled since rpms skyrocket.

    Check the input shaft endplay. I know that mine is a little loose since I didn't have the correct shim and it whines under power but it silent off throttle; it's done that since day one.

    I want to re-experiment with the 2-step on 24.5's but stopped using it a while ago with the 26's. The 2-step is on clutch bottom position so there is a delay between 2-step disengage and clutch engage. might switch it to a top clutch switch... launch strategy was to leave at 4500 and slip the clutch. I need practice LOL. Yes, no WOT box or anything so I short shifted to keep it off the limiter

    Good idea. I actually pre-loaded mine so it wasn't loose before the new bearing plate and pretty sure its not afterwards. Would think it would whine all the time if it was too tight?

    Re: BadAss SRT-Z - 2.4L / A568 - Update!!!

    I was messing with my clutch switch when getting mad at the funny feeling pressure plate on my Duster 2 months ago and found that I had the stupid switch adjusted so it would close the circuit before I fully disengaged the clutch. This meant I had to force the bracket backwards each time I tried to push the clutch all the way in. The switch does not seem very user friendly in terms of being able to adjust AND to slip the clutch slightly. I think we need a switch that activates before it is fully depressed and has large amount of movement after it is first activated. Not sure if that exists. What about our brake switch? I can't say that I tested the minimum movement before the clutch switch closes. I just tried to adjust the switch so that I could get almost to the floor before it started pressing back against my foot because it had hit bottom. I tried testing it a little on the street but didn't really get to feel if my clutch is engaging before the 2 step disengages. That would be ideal.

    Big CONGRATS on the PB!

    FWIW, 2 step on below "X" MPH works pretty well. I have mine set to 4 mph.

    Not really, unless it was bearings whining, which then they likely wouldn't have much life left. I've set a few transmissions with the input shaft preloaded at .005-.010(Ed Peters or 5Digits stuff on Gary's site) and they were silent as can be. The single trans I had to go with some endplay, around .020 is whiny under load. All but one trans has used a speed gear or two from another transmission, so mismatched wear patterns could cause some noise, but only one of them with swapped gears has the noise. Shaft end play is all I've got. The next time the trans comes out of the R/T I'll be tightening it up a bit.
