Red face Truck only ran a 14.85 @ 89 mph?

I have an 06 6oh. It has a 6 inch lift with 35's. Superchip, stack, and airfilter.

I launched in 4wd and cut a 1.9 60. I thought it would go faster?

I only gain 15 mph from the 1/8th mark to the 1/4 mark though.

How much time would smaller tires help me get?

If you don't drink Dos XX's, you need to start today.
2007 F-250 Lariat FX4
SCT w/ Matt's SRL
37" Toyos on 18's
75,000 HARD miles and absolutely no problems. What's the deal Bill?

youll be alot quicker once you get that SCT you want.. but your size and tires are a factor as well.... larger rotating mass with stock gears... plus your higher up so your getting more wind....

6" lift, 35" tires, superchips. Remove this stuff and add an SCT and you'll be much quicker

1/4 Mile


Well, you'll still be quicker than a late 1970s or early 1980s Camaro Z-28. Back then, they had a hard time breaking the 15-second barrier. Low compression GM V8 engines displacing 305 cubic inches and 87 Octane gasoline did not do much for performance!

dont feel too bad, i ran a 14.72 with 33" tires AND an SCT! this could have to do with my tranny having 194k miles or maybe my reaction times, either way im looking to get quicker
