Brothers 1/8th mile, first time out

So we got to take my Brothers 05 F350 Crew Cab Long Box SRW to the track this past friday. we got there bout half way through test and tune and he was still able to make 8 passes in the 1/8th. It was his first time Drag racing a 9000 pound truck and let alone in 4x4. I rode along for a couple runs and the lights are hard to judge when u have to build boost in a short period of time. All he has done to the truck is 5 inch exhaust, DJs Looney tune, Accufab Intake, Cold air intake, and a shimmed fuel regulator. Had full tank of fuel, tool box full of tools, 325/60/18s, and a passenger for a couple runs. guess on weight is around 9000 pounds.

1st pass:
Forgot it was in nuetral.....
.00 Dial in
1.5344 RT
2.8009 60FT
6.9984 330FT
70.18 MPH



Last pass with passenger

.00 Dial In
.5582 RT
1.8805 60FT
5.8995 330FT
9.3841 1/8th mile
70.48 MPH

There is alot of room for improvement, and for the first time out for the yr i think he did a heck of a job, and i just love that it smoked the whole 1/8th mile. Thanks to Vivian and DJ at DJs Diesel Performance.

Nice runs and that's a very nice looking truck.

We'll tweak the file a little and see what we can come up with

I had a blast, rode for the 2 fastet passes and all i can say is **** ive never been put that far into a seat in a truck b4. Oh and i figure we can cut it down to about 8200 pounds if we really wanted to but its for fun, and maybe it will hit the track at 8400 next time but depends on what track we go to. And DJ i look forward to the "tweaked" tune. this one is awesome, maybe this time we will see wat the pyro is runnin might have to set up a second camera just to watch that, since we never had a chance to look at it.
