    Default First Time

    Popped my trucks 1/8th mile cherry tonight. Beat 2 mustangs, a honda, almost beat a neon and an SRT8 Charger (treed both of them).

    Mods:

    M1, 52mm TB, Spintech 3" True Duals w/cats, Flyin Ryan tune, Detroit Locker & 4.56s, Riken Raptor street tires, Hipotek transmission crossmember, 1.7 HS RR's, hardened pushrods & MP .600 springs.

    Ignition is Performance Distributors firepower kit with plug gap @ .065"

    It's not amazing, but I was impressed. It felt so easy to tree the fuck out of everyone. Yet my RTs were still crap

    I'm # 232, right lane

    Good Job, some better tires would drop that time about 2 tenths, or so.

    Yeah, I was just curious how it would perform. It was rough first off, trying to balance out bringin up the stall and the right amount of throttle out to about 60'. The first run I made, it completely lit up the tires. I am talking like some top fuel dragster stuff! Haha. They thought I was TRYING to do another burnout. I can't imagine what having a real motor and a big boy stall would be like.

    Clary don't be surprised if this combo doesn't really shine until the back 1/8th of the track. Combos that make their power above say 3000 rpms are going to be somewhat faster than their 1/8th mile times would suggest.

    Lots of fun eh Matt?
    I've spent most of my money on women, booze, and my truck. The rest of the money was wasted!

    Smartphones are a menace to society and are creating a zombie apocalypse!

    If you don't like me on the phone get off the road!

    I'm glad I went, for sure...gave me some new things to hash out with the truck. Made me really enjoy it a whole lot more too. Sad to say but going to a back country 1/8th mile drag strip has been one of few positives lately, haha
