Normal operating temp for C6 in Race conditions

Post  HorsinAround on January 5th 2018, 12:52 pm

What is the normal operating range for a C6 launching off a brake with a higher stall converter? Also is it common to run faster times as the transmisison warms up? I ask these questions because during 2017 I only did TnT's but noticed that my Et's would get quicker as the engine and trans warmed up. The last night I was out before the track closed for the season, I ran the truck enough that the trans temp was up to 210F (going to add another cooler/fan this winter) but I got the best Ets I've had at this temp. Also had 2 back to back runs that were within a couple thousandths.
Don't know if it makes a difference, but I am running max life dex/merc synthetic fluid.

If you've ever done a burnout while watching the trans temp in the outgoing cooler line, it gets hot. Especially with a high stall convertor.

I like ATI's SuperF synthetic for hot usage.
