I haven't watched the videos yet, but those are some cool numbers! Now you need to get on the meth and put the grocery getter on a diet.:beer2:

DJ should be happy to see that you ran your best time with his tunes! You didn't even have a great RT on the DJ's run. I gotta tell you though, now you've shown your cards to Rodslinger! I bet even if he makes a run at the track, he won't post the results before you two meet again. He's going to sneak up on you with that alien intake elbow of his!

haha oh yeah i know me and alan will be at it for some time to come.

i forgot to mention i was running with a full tank of fuel, probably right at 320 ponds of fuel

i think next time im gonna run with less fuel, no spare tire and take out everything that i can to trim it down a bit

I really like the cajun commentary!

For your fuel weight calculations, #2 fuel weighs just a little more than 7 lbs per gallon. Gas is down in the low 6 lb/gal range. Anyway, a 1/4 tank of fuel and lose the spare tire along with any other unecessary junk and you should drop a few tenths.

Since you launch in 4wd (hopefully) you should be able to run your air pressure up pretty good to help with the rolling resistance.

It's something you will have to play with. I wouldn't recommend more than the max rated pressure, but the more pressure you can run without causing too much wheel spin, the less rolling resistance you will have.

I haven't done any drag racing with the truck yet so hopefully guys with some experience can help you out.
