hi Steve, I was reading Dave's calcs on FB and looks like you were only in 3rd gear? Is that right or did you get to 4th? Will be interesting to see your vid which I am sure you will post....

I had to use 4th, when the intake temps came up around 1/2 the ECU dropped timing so didn't want to rev so I stuck it into 4th
