First time with KEM at the track....

Was at the track doing a little t&t with my bike to get ready for a race next weekend and decided to go ahead and make a couple passes with 350. I had the 275 tune loaded at the time and this was my first time running the truck.

Left at 10psi on this one.

60'..... 1.813
330.... 5.446
1/8.... 8.544
mph... 79.41
1000.. 11.220
1/4.... 13.499
mph... 98.61

Next I tried to leave at 20psi and it wheel hopped like a m/f so I had to let out.

60'..... 2.216
330.... 6.025
1/8.... 9.147
mph... 79.01
1000.. 11.831
1/4.... 14.112
mph... 98.43

Overall I didnt think it did to bad but next time I might do a few things to combat the wheel hop.

Anything over 13psi for me and the truck flops all over the place. Did you let some air out of the tires. I put mine down to 25lbs (all 4)

I didn't touch the tires, literally unhooked the trailer and pulled up to the line.

The best thing I have found for getting off the line is about 45 lbs in the front tires and 30-35 lbs in the rear tires. You SHOULD be able to cut a consistent 1.7X-1.8X 60 foot.

I will give that a go next time. I have also heard you can strap the front end down a bit, but I'm not sure on that. How much boost are you usually able to leave with?
