First time out at the track!!!

Thursday night I went and ran the truck for the first time in the 1/8 mile. I was pleased with my times considering that this was the first time that I had ever run. I was launching in 4x4 HI at 13lbs of boost, then switch back to 2wd around the 30mph mark. My best time was:

Reaction-0.0278
60ft-2.0899
330ft-6.3426
1/8 ET-9.9786
1/8 MPH-67.11

This guy in a 06 Cummins really wanted to race me until I ran one time, then he back out of it, I think I kinda scared him a little. Two of my three races I raced a 99 F-350 Dually, he red lighted both times and I still beat him. I had the best times out of all the PSD's that ran that night, even a 6.0L!!

Thanks guys, yea it was a lot of fun. Hopefully soon I'll go to the 1/4 mile track in Fayettville NC, ( for those of you who live in NC) and see what it runs there. I'm hoping for mid 14's, we'll see
