Should I be dissapointed?

So went to the local drag strip and ran my truck for the first time. Well the first pass i think i ran a 12 something. I spun the tires or tire for more than half of the track. My dp tuner was on the 80hp setting. Then i change the programer to the aggressive setting (140hp) I think and ran a 10.33. That was the best i could do. I never got my truck to hook up. I wanted to run it in 4 high but i have a bad hub assembly on my driver side wheel. So my question is should i be dissapointed. All i have on my truck is 5 inch exhaust, s & b intake, and the dp tuner.

There is no way with what mods you have that you made a 10 sec quarter mile. Please verify that it was done in the 1/8 mile.

Why is this even a discussion? He's obviously talking about an 1/8 mile strip. come on guys....

OP-That is not to bad for just having a tuner on your truck. What is your cab config? Post up some trap speeds and your 60' times as well. Launching in 4x4 will def. help your times

on edit: Just saw the cab config in his sig pic

He has to be running 1/8th mile.

And I don't think that is to bad for a stock truck with just a tuner and a few other mods.
