How do you flash the TC?

I know how to breakstall the TC to get your rpms up and preload the drivetrain. If I am correct is flashing just mashing the gas?

Hold the break and hit the gas and hold it at the point right before where your tires break loose.

you flash the TC by not brake stalling. go from idle to WOT real fast.

While we are talking about TC's what in the world is a loose or a tight TC?

Loose TC's stall at higher RPMs, letting you brakestall into your powerband (if you have the tires to stick the launch) or they keep you from braking loose too bad if you just flash it.

Tight TC's, obviously then, have a lower "stall" speed.

lower stall TCs are for bigger vehicles, because it requires the low end torque. Trucks are the extreme example, an F150 stall is a good 500 rpms below our stock, and a mach1 stall is a good 1000rpms higher.
