Track Tonight...

I REALLY need to learn how to brighten these up b4 I post them if I'm going to continue to take video's at night lol.

Long stories/short.
Ran out of diesel
Tried running the SCT live data, didn't work.
My T/C started messing up
Launches sucked, times sucked (best was 15.5 so I guess not THAT bad).
Ditty owes me a 6 pack. lol

Here are some video's...
Ditty's 2nd run against some little car.


Here on the launch the front tires spin, the truck "bogs" and then takes off...


The main event... Maintain vs Ditty


I got some more video's but most of them were of a bunch of Cummins that my friend Kyle was drooling over. I had one guy tell me he had 550hp with a chip and tranny and then he ran a 14.7 lol... I asked him which dyno he got that number from and conveniently he got a phone call and never came back over LOL.

Either way, it was great meeting ditty, thanks for the help, and I'm glad we ran em. Next time hopefully you'll have a turbo, and I'll have a built tranny!

2 Friday's from now, but I won't be running my truck. I'm going down to see Dockboy's new motor and times and I'll be video taping for him.

In the race "Ditty vs Maintain" he ran a 17 flat and I ran a 16 flat. Not to make up excuses but my truck wouldn't launch b/c of the T/C...

It's my buddies, I can't install it on my truck for 2 reasons, it's truck specific like Super Chips so you can't install it on more the one truck at a time. And it's also specifically programmed for my buddies truck who has injectors and turbo so it wouldn't do me much good! I was trying to run the live data with it last night, but couldn't get it to work

I still owe. I didn't want to risk taking the beer to the track and then getting 'em broken through the launches. I'll be paying up on the 16th. I had never launched in 4WD before friday and MAN it's violent. I did a little testing on Sat morning to see the difference on traction on a track and on regular roads. The track is better, but not by much. I don't think they do much track prep at Cecil Co. for the fri/sat night races.

I definately need either gears or stock tires size for racing. I'm turning right under 3000 rpm's in 4th gong through the trap. If I had to shift into 5th, it would loose me a lot of time. Anyone want to buy me an Auto tranny and swap it w/ my 6 spd? LOL

Ohh...I almost forgot. I'm not seeing any compressor surge on the track. I get it on my daily driving but Fri night, I didn't hear it or see it in the boost gauge. Kinda Weird.

It's exhilerating to run at the track. No worries about cops, stop signs, pedestrians! LOL

Oh Yeh...

My buddy found a complete 12v Cummins w/ intercooler for 1500 bucks... Kinda makes you think

lol!
