what do you think shell run in the 1/4

I know this is a dumb question but id like to take my truck to the strip probably in the spring and I was wondering if anyone has any guess on what it would run I would probably take the spare off and the tailgate boost it to around 10 and run a 100 shot of spray with setup in sig, again I know this is a stupid question but I don't have a clue what it'll run thanks mike

The difference between you running a 14 and a 12 would be you.
If you get a good dig then you should have no problem getting into the 12s. If you sit there and spin all day, you're looking at a 14. But that's why you run it in 4HI..
And leave the tailgate up. The trucks are designed to have less air resistance with a tailgate. Don't you watch mythbusters?? lol

Reaction time has nothing to do with your time btw....

I would say with 225s and a turbo to handle all that fuel and spray to boot I would say 12.3 @ 108. That is if you can put down a good 60' (1.8 0r better)

The weight savings of removing the tailgate would be more of a benefit that the little bit of extra drag you'll see with the tailgate on. Remember, myth busters was testing fuel economy, not ET.

I wasn't saying reaction time. What do you think I am?? A teenager with a rice rocket?
I was saying if you just romp the living hell out of it off the line or leave it in 2wd.. Well, you should know.

And you really think that removing 35lbs off an 8,500lb truck is going to help at all? lol. Sorry, but no.

If y'all wanna keep picking, I'm ready.. LOL. I've been up for 46 hours and counting. So papa bear ain't taking ribbing to easily right now.

My comment about reaction time wasn't directed to you.

But.... 100lbs is usually good for 1-2/10s in the 1/4. So if you take that off and drop your spare and some other stuff you could noticeably drop your time. Every little bit helps.

Ahhh, my bad. lol. I see it now
And yes, dropping the spare will decrease weight and drag. But the tailgate weighs no more than 35lbs.. And increases drag.
Like I've admitted on the .org before, when I'm grumpy I get a little hardheaded. But I just don't think that dropping the tailgate is going to do anything different.
If it was a 2door short box, then I could see trying to put the truck on a diet.
Spare? Absolutely. Agree with that one

(in red. Pay attention to what's in red.... lol!)
