Response to No upshift on COM
I asked the same question and pointed out the second gear start. He did sort of answer that by saying that if he puts the lever into the kickdown position it goes down to first then upshifts when he releases the lever.
I am assuming from what he wrote that once it makes the kickdown to second shift it stays in second and never hits third. Stuart did say to tie the kick down all the way up (idle position) this should make it shift real early. Never got an answer if that made any change.
I will say that I did a C-4 with a high stall convertor and tryed to test it with the wheels off the ground and could not tell I was geting all 3 gears, even tryed to load it down with the brakes to simulate some load. Once we put it on the ground it worked fine so I am not sure the wheels up test is valid in all cases.
