Boost and rpm through shifts makes for a faster car.

This is true if you are making a drag car auto is the way to go less strain on the drive train and holds boost through the gears

Your builds are super clean. I love your work man. I can see all the details you put into the last build.

Do you do all the work yourself? At home? How do you know how to do all this?

Valid point. Great build
Upgrading the clutch packs . . . or using stock ones for now?
