Next run traction control off no burnout launched great ran a 14.3 I felt like it was reving too high in order to shift (it's an auto) so I went into the strategy tune menu and changed the octane to 93 which it should've been at and turn the rev limiter down from 7100!?!? To 6800 why it was that high idk. Then ran a 14.2 so I thought maybe I just need to get it to shift sooner next run the car for some reason again revs up high neutral drops itself then revs again and I limp down the track for a sad 18. I don't understand how American muscle can take my car stock run a 14.4 then put their tune in it the same day and run a 13.8. Don't think I'm bashing American muscle their customer service is great and I'm sure once I tell them they'll do something to fix it right away like always but this is my third issue I think I might go with a another tune I'm really upset that bama advertised going from 14.4 to a 13.8 with a complete stock car and it's just not true I was even on the ball the whole night driving great my reaction time was .201!

I'm sorry to heat that you're having some issues with your Bama tune. We can definitely look into your tune and make some adjustments that will benefit you and also can address the issues you're having. We set all of the 11+ Sixxers to shift at 7,100, that's where the power starts to drop off. Other than that, it sounds like we need to make some adjustments to transmissions settings and you'll be good to go.
I was at the track the day we ran our BONE STOCK 2011 V6
down the strip and the car ran a 13.7. The new V6's really rip and high 13's is absolutely an achievable goal. There's so many different variables that go into every single pass that can affect your time. Elevation at the time of the pass, humidity, track prep, 60 ft etc.. It looks like you cut a 2.3 60ft, that's really bad. For every one tenth you cut off of your 60ft, you'll cut roughly two tenths off of your end time. We cut a 2.0 60 ft (which is half decent for street tires but still not that great) with our 2011 V6
. That's three tenths better than your 60ft, so that's six tenths off of your end time. If you do the math, with a 2.0 60 ft you would have ran a 13.8 on that exact same pass!
I hope this clears things up for you! Please shoot me a PM with your order number included and I'll have a bama tuning specialist hit you up directly to get your tune squared away.
