What should my truck run in the 1/4?

I'm going to be at the track tonight with a customer and I was thinking about disconnecting the trailor and making a few passes. What do you guys figure it should run on 37's with the Spartan 275v4, (power numbers are in the sig)?


Also, my truck has an 8 inch Fabtech lift w/o any form of traction bar on it. Will it be fine to launch hard in four wheel drive or should I baby it out of the hole?

Thanks for any input!

You should run mid to high 13's in the 1/4 @ 100 + MPH. Boost the heck out of it at the tree! Have FUN!

i'd start out slow and just work on the launches, paying close attention to how its taking off. 37's and 522hp... im guessing 14.0

I am running my CC/SB tonight with 310 tune. 8" lift with 37's. Hopefully I don't break it, I would be truckless.

I agree with Dusten, slow at first then feel it out. He should be pretty close with the times also. Launch it in 4X4 and see what happens, if it hops, ease out then get on it again. You really need traction bars with the 8" lift.

I would like to be running the 310 tune tonight also.

Seriously though. It didn't take you very long to go from "I don't think I'll ever race that truck again now that its lifted" to "hopefully it don't break"!

I'm going to start off some what easy with the launching and see how the lift/rear diff. takes it.

He's got racing in his veins and the drag truck is down, might as well use the tow truck.
