First time at the track!! Spartan 275

I took the truck to the track last night. Is my first time at the track .

So to be a noobie my first 2 or 3 passes bad..... I didn't have the 4X4 on the first .

I did like 10 passes, best time 8.94543 on a 1/8 track.

Bad reaction time on this pass 1.16631, Tree Speed .500, 60 feet 2.015, 330 feet 5.77 total of 77.67 MPH

Spartan 275 and powerstroke 67 delete, pipe everything else stock. What you guys think?

Reaction times are only important when you're actually racing. They don't factor into your ET. So don't sweat slow reaction times.

Its fun isn't it!

It will def go faster than that. My first time to the track wasn't very good either. I only ran an 8.7xxx. I agree with the above post, they should run 8.5 or lower.

Jose,

When you are in 4x4 it will automatically turn off the traction control with the 275 tune. One less thing to worry about at the line.

Definatly get the other "bolt ons"! This will further improve the efficiency and HP of your truck!

Keep us posted!

For the suncoast solenoid you have to drop the pan but the tcm I hear is a really easy install and only takes 15 minutes or so. You might as well buy the 310 for $100 if you are going to the track as well, and S&B is a great intake for the price!
