Spartan At the Track

Well I took my truck to street fight in Bristol, Va at Thunder Valley and wow it really moves on. I ran a 14.5 at 95 the first time cause I went through the water and all 4 tires was spinning with a boosted launch. The other 3 times I ran 14.1 at 95. One time I had my cell phone in my cup holder and when I launched my cell went flying and landed in my back seat lol. It has some power lol. Thanks to John at Cobbs. My cousin video typed one run.

What did you run? 210, 250 or 275? Your signature says 275 so I'm guessing that's it?

u should be able to get your 60 foots down to about 1.8 or so maybe better than that even, roll up to the line stage once, wait for the guy next to you to stage once, boost your truck up to the rpm or boost that you want, then roll up to your second stage and dont move the throttle, watch the lights leave on the third yellow, try leaving at 1800 rmp or so.

My old 6.0 would pull 1.83-1.86 EVERY run using a similar method to this. It would really piss off the locals when I'd take that thing out to the bracket races!

screw reaction time... work on those 60's you could easily get your truck in the 13's.
