The slush box tranny really reduces the violent start compared to dumping a clutch in a stick so ... used more psi.

Could probably break boost higher rpm's and run lower psi's to improve the 60' and improve the ET. But dang, that's a lot of stress on things.
Yeah drag racing can be pretty brutal on parts if you get overly serious about your times.
