Took my first step into ECU tuning and changed the line pressure settings, WOT shift points, and torque converter lock up point.

Actually moved the shift points down as the factory program shifts after peak power, just spinning and not pulling anymore.

Good tell the difference when I floored it.

Looks like the suspension held up fine, didn't find anything loose. Trying to motivate myself to actually clean the thing, maybe I can get my daughter to do it.

Results of autocross, car started cutting out in the sweeper with Mr. Shields driving, should have had him take all five runs. Lesson learned.
