First time at the Drag Strip

What's up guys. Took the truck out for Imports vs Domestics at Raceway Park today in Englistown, NJ. I only got in 2 passes where I ran a 14.40 and a 14.9. On the first pass I barely built any boost because I was afraid of loosing traction in 2wd. On the second pass I decided to let her spool more and I ended up blowing off the tires. I was running my highest tune from Rob (110 hp). Racing is so much fun haha I'm definitely addicted now! Can't wait for a built front end and some bigger tunes. I didn't air down my tires or do anything fancy since I was just out to have some fun for my first time, but now I'm seriously considering a lot more upgrades for the truck lol.

Here's the video of the crappy 2nd pass I made

I'm curious, have you tried airing down your tires yet and did it help or hurt your ET?

I have the exact same tire/wheel set-up as you, I dropped the tire pressure from 45 to 30 and noticed a drop in my 60' and 1/8 mile ET. Raised tire pressure back to 45 and picked back up on 60' and 1/8 ET.
