Need some help guys--went to the track last night and was dissapointed yet again with my car--last year best run was a 15.9 with a aem intake greedy exhaust and stock rims---this year best i could break out is a 16.024

srt intake
greddy exhaust
jic-fla1 coil overs
18 axis spiders

my problem is i get a decent jump of the line and the 60 foots are like 2.3 which arent bad. But the transmission is slowing me down alot---the shifts are sloppy and when i have the car to the floor the car is holding up at 6k rpm and chiilin for a couple secs and then shifting. For instence i leave the line and 1st gear is good get to about 6k were it should switch gears and the car drops to 5500 and then back to 6 again and the shifts. Does it sound like a transmission problem or are these how the stock auto trannys are suppose to shift and what should i do upgrade wise.

esc from turbo east
valve body upgrade

Any help or input would be appreciated. Thanks in advance

If cheap is your goal an ESK will help. If not just get a valve body upgrade.
