Going to Irwindale speedway tonight (1/8th mile)

I finally have a Thursday night free! I am going to Irwindale Speedway to see what my PSD can do.

4" turbo back exhaust
Kitty de Muerte kit (no cat)
Looney Tune
2wd
ANY PREDICTIONS ON TIME?!?

I still haven't learned how to launch my truck. If I PUNCH it, I spin for a while. When I ease it, then when I'm WOT I still spin. I try to launch it with about 5lbs of boost, but I just sit & spin.

I'm going early so I know I can get 4 or 5 runs in.

I'm praying for 9.5 or less.

If you are in SoCal, meet me there & we'll go head to head.

Proverbs 21:9 It is better to live alone in the corner of an attic than with a nagging wife in a lovely home. Now you might not believe in God, Jesus or the Bible, but I'm sure you can appreciate the wisdom of that verse. Amen?

2006 PSD Dark gray.
SCT Tuner
4" turbo back exhaust (sounds amazing)

Prayers were answered.

FIRST RUN: I ran a 9.51 at 77
SECOND RUN: I ran 9.62 at 79 (doesn't make sense speed was higher)
THIRD RUN: This is the impressive one, I ran 11.something at 55! Woooo! (truck wouldn't shift out of 2nd gear, played with SCT too much)
FOURTH RUN: 9.68 at 78
FIFTH RUN: 9.89 at 88

If I can master my launch, I think I can get a below mid 9's. Problem is, once the turbo kicks in the wheels start spinning. When I'm at the track and I try to ease the pedal down, I get panicky when I see the ricer get away from me and I MASH IT and then start to spin for a while. I still catch the ricer, but .... I need to learn to launch.

I toasted a Mustang, Roush stage 2. OK, didn't toast but beat by a fender.
Got eaten alive by a Civic (ran an 8.5)
Got murdered by a H U G E semi truck looking chevy dually 4x4

All in all it was fun, but I need to learn to take off. My 60' times stank! High 2's.

I need to find me a set of slicks that will help me take off. A nice 12 or 14 inch wide rim.

Proverbs 21:9 It is better to live alone in the corner of an attic than with a nagging wife in a lovely home. Now you might not believe in God, Jesus or the Bible, but I'm sure you can appreciate the wisdom of that verse. Amen?

Try some sand bags over the rear axle, the extra weight wont hurt much.

Did burn outs, had an empty tank. Next week I am going to make sure I have a full tank and I'm going to practice launching and easing the pedal to WOT. I know I can break mid 9's.

Yes, it was a 1/8th mile. As far as I know, there is no 1/4 mile track in SoCal (public anyway).

Proverbs 21:9 It is better to live alone in the corner of an attic than with a nagging wife in a lovely home. Now you might not believe in God, Jesus or the Bible, but I'm sure you can appreciate the wisdom of that verse. Amen?
