Going to the track tonight - Videos added

So, as long as the rain holds off, I'll be heading to the track tonight. Any guesses on what I'll run? The truck weighs 7200lbs with me in it. See signature for truck description and mods. The track altitude is approx. 2400'. I'm hoping for 13.50s (or quicker) but I guess we'll have to wait and see.

in the 1/4? You should run mid 14's I'm thinking. It takes a little more to get into the 13's.

Good luck!! Let us know how you do!

That's odd - I've seen lots of guys with similar trucks running race files that are in the 13.30s at sea level. Even guys with 05 and newer trucks, which are a little slower to start with, running 14.00s with heavier crew cab trucks. I guess we'll have to see what DJ and the Looney can do.

Well, the rain held off and we got to do some racing. It was the first time for me at the track with the truck so it took a bit to find the right launch and everything but the best for the night was:

R/T .255
60' 1.921
330' 5.708
1/8 8.952
MPH 75.80
1000' 11.750
1/4 14.116
MPH 95.11

Overall it is pretty quick but not what I was expecting. I guess I should look at installing my crossover fuel line and get an AFE or Volant and see what happens with some more practice.

So, can someone shed some light on how some trucks can run so much faster than others? I see that some guys with the 05-06 c/c s/b trucks running as quick as me - I thought the 03-04 trucks were supposed to be 3-4 tenths quicker in the 1/4? I need to figure this out. Is it maybe because my engine still isn't broken in yet - 3500 miles on it? Any suggestions are welcome.

Well if you have done the research and you know that you are running the same mods the other guys are that are running 13s then maybe the next question is how is how did they launch? 2wd or 4wd? if 2wd then did they heat them up? what kind of tire were they running? did they leave it in "D" or did they manually shift it? there are a whole bunch of questions. I assume you launched it 4wd with the turbo spooled, if not then try that next time and watch that 60ft and 1/4 mile time drop...... and get a big ol smile on your face:burnout
