i tried using the transbrake after doing suspension mods on first pass of the day. It went how you would expect. i don't think ive seen any ecoboost 10r80 transbrake 1/4 mile runs. I definitely wasn't paying enough attention to boost and datalog shows i tried to leave on 9psi with rpm limit set to 2200. Is the transbrake useable at all on street tires or is 3.55 and 1st gear too much torque? Or is there a way to change boost level via load setting on the accessport?

You’re just going to blow away the stock tires leaving off a transbrake. It comes to a point where suspension and slicks or drag radials will have to come into play. Here’s a photo of my 95 leaving off the brake, cutting a 1.2 sixty. You don’t want to dial any power back. The whole idea of a transbrake is to leave under full power. And more consistency at the light.

I also run a 10 speed Ecoboost, (but in a NMRA foot brake only class).
I've thought about activating my transbrake and running in NMCA true street events. What is your RPM at launch? Our cars launch differently, mine is smooth, with no wheel hop.
