First Track Run!

I am STUCK in West Tx, been out here fer a DAWG's age .... So I was heading out to get some grub last night, and I drive by a 1/8 track on I-20 so "the Big Girl" decides she is going to do her own driving "KITT" style and first thing I know we are looking over at a Dodge Dually 5.9 with an exhaust, and a Smarty... no 4x4 though ... that was his mistake .... ... granted I had 120+ gallons of fuel in the truck since I just filled up. This is the first run I have ever made, but I am READY for more! I don't know if it is a good 1/8 mile time, but I ran a 9.4 to his 10.1. Maybe you all can tell me how I did? I figured .5 throuh the 1/8 was a romping ....

Do remember that I had well over 900 pounds of fuel in the truck at the time....

Bob~!

9.4 aint bad with thath much fuel, I'm 2wd and ran a 8.96 with canned SCT tunes and no boosted launch. I imagine the Cummins with the Smarty is just spinning.
