wheel hoping 4x4 boosted launch
.took the truck to the 1/4 strip for the first time. made a few passes truck ran great.. I dont know if anyone else has the same problems with watchin boost while trying to stage but I DO! i hit the first stage light..then boost it up and creep it forward to the second light and then go but i have trouble holding a steady boost level and its hard to watch the gauge and lights, IMO!
the truck was launching great but one time. i went up and staged like normal, i must have boosted the thing throught the roof some how because when i dumped the brake and mashed it the truck launched sideways. wheel hopped like a son of a gun in the front and i was forced to let go.. it hopped so hard i was certain the front end was trashed, i bit my tongue and they had to shut down that lane to clean up all the dirt the fell from my truck from the track.. the crowd loved it! I DIDNT!! any one else done this before??
