My first pass

I made my first pass at the drag strip Friday night, it was cool as hell. I ran a 9.1 in a 1/8 mile , not bad i guess for a 8000lb dually. I was in 4wheel high and my front end was going all over the place , what can I do to help the front steering to keep it straight?

Edge insight CTS. Mbpr 5" exhaust. Up pipe. Down pipe. Detrimmed. Next on the list, Trans-go Jr.shift kit.



I don't normally drink milk, but when I do , I drink dos boobies.:

My truck has a plug does that make it Eco friendly.

I actually don't have one lol. It's in my to buy list, but funds are tight right now.

Did you air your tires down?

Yes airing your tires down makes a huge difference. Everything I've read, and my personal experience, I air down to roughly 35psi.

I haven't done enough research on a stabilizer to give you what I feel to be an educated response. Gonna have to do some looking
