    Thats a cool vid. I love hearing how fast that A8 transmission can shift. Those A8 Hellcats are no joke.

    Owner speculated a missed shift over spin but a few that know a few things on these blowers nailed the cause to the use of water meth, you can't compress water.

    yep, can't compress a liquid. Its better to know that it was because of the water meth than the over spinning. If it failed because of over spinning thats cause for concern.

    Agreed

    Injecting liquid into the inlet of the blower - check
    18 psi - check
    4th gear lets go in trans and engine overspeeds - check

    Recipe for a bad day.

    That second run would have been quicker but he was sleeping at the green light.
