I'm at Cecil right now.

I'm here at the dragstrip testing for tomorrow's race.

Truck is doing ok, but still has the same problem.


Launches suck... it falls on its face but still running respectfully. The trans fluid is spot on, and I put a brand new alternator on so it's not a charging problem.

Here are my slips.
1.872 60'
8.62 @ 79.99 1/8
13.529 @ 100.21 Fuel only, trans temp 110*

1.944 60'
8.63 @ 80.94 1/8
13.46 @ 101.52 Fuel only, trans temp closer to 120*


1.920 60'
8.606 @ 81.09
13.42 @ 102 50 shot at 600 psi, couldn't keep the bottle warm. Line blew off




hey i gtg... lines are moving again.

Are you launching with too much boost. Maybe it is small problem of turbo stall.

Tried spraying this run, but the line blew off at the intake manifold where I have it plumbed.

1.929 60'
8.606 @ 81.09
13.42 @ 102


I see that the threads are stripped but still run anyway. As I was staging the O/D light started blinking and I knew the launch was going to suck. It was a "input shaft/output shaft not matching or something.

2.255 60'
8.9 @ 82.54
13.67 @ 103.16

Tried again. OD light was blinking again as soon as I spooled up.
2.205 60'
8.841 @ 82.74
13.57 @ 103.64
