A couple of things you need to keep in mind about the black dragster - and I agree it didn't have a very good showing, BUT:

The driver was still getting his license, so the first pass was only 1/2 track on power.

The stand alone trans controller was giving them fits, and it wouldn't shift out of first gear. Once they figured out how to correct it, the drags were done and the focus was shifted to the pulls, so they didn't get another chance to run it down the track

The shop that owns and built the dragster (WOP in Sandy) also owns and runs the white OBS truck that lined up with the orange Chevy in the pictures posted just after the dragster pics. It currently holds the record for the highest HP Powerstroke to date, having put down a little more than 870 hp in Idaho a few weeks ago.

Given some time to get that thing dialed in, I think the powerstroke community will be pleasantly suprized! You've gotta admit, it's a little hard to tune a rail like that on the street

No bashing implied from me, I just wanted to make sure it was understood the dragster is still new. If I sounded like I was upset about his post, I appologize. Even the announcer didn't get it right: He stated the dragster was a "7.3 liter quad turbo cummins" about 10 times before someone got his attention Oh well, I guess everyone is entitled to a few mistakes . . . in the end, it's all good!
