Ding. Ding. Ding. We have a winner.

This stalling out, as the OP calls it, is almost certainly running up against the rev limiter and is operator error, not a transmission issue. Someone please correct me if I am wrong.

I think we can write this thread off.

Dinan compliment of stuff plus PF rotors and RG63s. Enough for now.
Why, yes. I am an abrasive bastard.
