Recently purchased a former super gas car minus motor and trans. We have our motor and trans in it now and need to set the throttle stop RPM. Throttle stop is a Dedenbear base-plate style and co2 activated. From doing some reading it looks like around 4000 rpm is a good starting point for the rpm while on the stop. Anyway, how does one set that. Do you turn the air off so the stop is closed?
Can you do it in park or neutral or does it need to be on jack stands and in gear?

Thanks

Ok - read thru that thread. We are new to this style of racing - coming from a mid 12 sec, back half, foot brake car, so maybe this is a stupid question. My question is if we put it in low and hold the trans brake button won't it just go up to the launch rpm? Which we have a 3800 chip in to leave the line at.

Zeke is your launch RPM is lower than your T stop RPM you need to pull the launch chip test your stop RPM on jack stands and after your test the RPM let the tires turn to cool and move the trans fluid around before you shut the car off.

Yes - was recommended by a fellow racer to launch around 3800 and have about 4000 for stop rpm.
So pull the launch rpm chip. With the rear on jack stands off the ground, put it in low hold the trans brake button then go to wide open throttle and check the rpm, then let rear tires spin a bit to circulate some trans fluid.
We will give this a try and see what we can accomplish. Thanks for the help.

So we do the procedure outlined above, but with the air bottle which would make the stop blades closed?
