what's 2step? is that lsd?
.........:bash



two step is a rev limiter you can set to launch with. For example...MSD'd digital 6 ignition has a rev limiter and a 2-step. The rev limiter you set as the max you will let your mtoor trun..in my case...8600.....the 2step you set for your launch rpm..in my case..7500..When you apply 12 volts to the 2step system it will use that rpm to limit the motor..when you release that 12volts it goes back to the max rev limit..basically all you do is runt he wire fromt the two step to a button..and the other side of the button goes to a 12volt source

i have a daughterboarded ecu. my tuner set my 2 step at 4800 rpms. cool thing about how he did it is that i now build 7 psi whenever i use my 2 step so i get a launch wiht 80 percent of my boost from the get go. really nice to use against awd cars

ohh.... i think i have that... i slam the gas and it stays on 3000rpm it makes this cool sound too... if i press the gas slowly to 5000rpm and then just slam it... it will do the same... and i take off with 6psi doing that... only thing is i spin for days.

you're fwd. physics is your enemy, you need to ease the clutch and get lsd with better tires.
