I have a few employees, that keep slipping on the dyno, too low of rpm or too high, especially with DIS. This of course, can be detrimental in the STAR scores. Any tips on how some of you guys never get dinged on incorrect gear section of test? They also mention that the screen blacks out at the last few seconds? Excuse? Sounds like it to me.
I have some dings for IGS but not enough to put me over the limit. I don't do anything special. When our scores first came out I was in bad shape but I would often up-shift to third on a manual trans and I would often have it entered as a automatic(default) when it was a manual.
People are usually shocked when they find out I'm not a very good electrician.
So the consensus is, test in 2nd and 3rd, keeping rpm's low or overshoot to 3000 to shift down? It seems some do it by the book, and some don't and get the same results. My tech keeps stating that by doing it by the book, is the right way. It may be the right way, but if getting dinged, then it doesn't matter. It's a pisser that most must do it the wrong way and thats how the stats have built up.
So I'm thinking keeping rpms low and shift up to 3rd and back off when possible?
