Seems pretty low to me since you mention you've got a few more goodies than I. I'd figure your numbers would be above mine. Im turnin 38"s and am more wind ugly and can pull off 14.86 on paper, sometimes I can come up with much higher numbers but I don't get greedy because sometimes I let the pump click others Im squeezin every last drop. lol. Lie-o-meter won't come any higher than 13.4....

Have you done anything about speedo correction? Maybe the grapplers have a high rolling resistance?
