Ok guys.....ive come to the conclusion my truck loses all its power after it shifts into 3rd at WOT.  Im really clueless as to what exactly i can do.. Not sure if im just running out of power or if the gear is just putting me out of my power band or what.  

Ive been doing a lot of thinking on this, and im just lost.  So im asking for your guys opinions of what i can do to help correct this (if possible) so i can hopefully finally break 14s consistently.  Here is a vid of me racing so you can see what happens when i hit 3rd etc.

I think it is a powerband / Horsepower issue.
