Congrats

Truck died like at the end of the run when you let off? Maybe it was tired?


Sorry dude, just jokes. I don't know why it would have died.

Where is the video at?

It's not really uncommon for the truck to die after letting off at full throttle. It used to happen to old carb vehichles all the time. But it still happens to injection vehichles some times.

Piece of advice take off a little slower next time and get the sled rolling a little bit before hammering the throttle should help some and turn the steering left to right just a little to gain a little traction as well. And of course get a bigger tune.
