My 350 track results...

Well to start off it was a very hot day, like 32C, not good day for racing. My first pass I had no tration and had to let out.

First pass:
60'-2.328
1/8-9.521
1/4-14.373
mph-101.51

Best pass:
60'-1.809
1/8-8.291
1/4-13.081
mph-102.29

My best pass previous to date with the 310 was:
12.901
102mph

Traction and wheel hop was an issue all day. I strapped the front end. and aired down the tires 25psi.This truck is a CC/SB with 35's and 4 inch lift, traction bars also, at 8200lbs. I made 3 -13.08x passes but ran out of runs to get any better as well I only ran the 350 tune. Trans shifted spot on with Spartan tcm and Suncoast converter. When I made the 12.9 pass with the 310, the day was much cooler. I agree with Jeff that the 350 might need a bit of tweeking as I do feel there is more power with the 350 than the 310 on the street, but the track isn't showing it.

Is the problem a traction issue? Has anyone tried slicks?

I wonder how much the hot weather affects these trucks. I ran my truck with the Spartan 310 this last weekend, (it's 90+ degrees here now ), and its 3 MPH off the pace vs. when it was in the 50's.

I live in Puerto Rico (Hot all the time) and I have found that the best pass has been very late at night when it is cool. My best was 8.1 in the 1/8 mile with 1.79, dont quite remember the mileage. It was cool that night it was somewhere around December.
