1st pull

hey guys , I'm realitvely new to your site, so i thought id say hi and see what the pros think of my first pull last night at the fair they had their first pulling sled so i had to try it . there were only 8 diesels 300' pull some guys there have pulled before. i placed second first pull went full 300, next 294.2 lost to a pstroke 350 dually 9' dump he did full pull both runs , 3rd was a dodge crew cab 8' dually that had been worked over "he wasnt happy" beat him by 2 feet! there was an07 dmax everyone said had big dollars in mods but he went 27? not sure exactly a couple older cummins with some work done they wouldnt say what they had done just smiled at me like i had no chance! i have an 04 350 psd x-cab short bed sct sf, zoodad, filter, mbrp turbo back. thought i did ok first pull took second place , only single rear wheel truck to do a full pull! but what i liked best 2 fords entered- 1 -2 finish! the crowd was upset that the duallys got to pull with the single wheels but long as i beat the dodge i didnt care. any tips for the next pull ? i did my performance tune agressive tow both runs the first was 4hi drive second was 4low drive i was in 4th gear by 275' never really felt the weight the second pull but lost traction
