cleburne red will become famous soon enough

The tach shooting up like that makes me thing it's something with the transmission. Like it slipped for a second.

I know on mine, when it's pretty low on atf, the torque converter won't stay locked. It'll unlock and lock randomly, resulting in the RPM shooting up for a second or two, before coming down when it locks back up
