My first time at the Track!

Well this is my first time ever at a drag track and had to learn how to do it first 3 runs were not so great but these are my times after that. And I was the only Diesel truck out there everyone was impressed that I talked to and I was almost like a Sales rep for spartan lol.

They should send me a sticker so I can advertise for them LOL!!

All 1/4 mile runing the Spartan 250 tune!

13.973

13.808

13.814

13.974

and my best time was.....

13.777

What do yall think?.

can I get in the 12's with the 275 or 310 Spartan tunes?

Pretty good times for your first time out on just the 250 tune.

What size tires are you running on and what is the configuration of the truck?

What did your 60fts look like?

You may have a little more room to improve without changing anything. My friend is running the 250 tune, S&B, 4 inch full delete pipe with Magnaflow 4 in cat back in 35's and has gone a best of 13.83. He is also running a 6 inch lift and his truck is a CC/LB.

Couple questions.. 1. this was recently? what was the track DA?
2. what was your trap speed? I dont think your 60ft times were that terrible, but depending on track DA you may be closer to the 12's than just your times indicate but you have to have all the information.. Forgive me Im a drag racer who just got rid of my LS powered car to get into diesel trucks, so the track i know... still learning about these trucks though..
whic reminds me.. do u have a delete pipe as well? whats your MPG looking like
