well i went to our local track here last night (Lebanon Valley Dragway East Nassua, NY) and ran the truck. it was our first test and tune and it was packed so i only got 3 runs in. i ran with no taligate, dropped t bars, sleeves, no transgo jr, removed the headlight, lowered tire pressure to 30F/25R (stock PYO's w/ 245's), spring clamps on front overload and ran with the mods in my sig. quad was set at 110

i tried gettin my spare tire down but couldnt get it to release and next time i might take the rear bumper off!

1st run: 8psi boosted 4hi launch

60' 2.008
330' 5.881
660' 9.077
mph 77.76
1000' 11.797
1320' 14.109
mph 96.96

2nd run: 10psi boosted 4hi launch

60' 1.956
330' 5.825
660' 9.014
mph 77.66
1000' 11.738
1320' 14.023
mph 98.99

3rd run: 12psi boosted 4hi launch

60' 1.936
330' 5.781
660' 8.921
mph 78.51
1000' 11.622
1320' 13.889
mph 99.82 :drink

this was my first night doing boosted launches it felt awesome! pulled straight as an arrow no bucking barking or jerking and wheels went straight! last run of the night i held of a C5 Z06 til the 1/8th :rockin

the truck def has low 13's in her! do you guys have any tips? or suggestions to get her outta the hole better i was think maybe a lil less weight and some more boost along with lower tire pressure? all suggestions and help would be sweet i want a low 13!!!!! :mad:

thanks
john

i heard of guys running slower on the 135 tune because it drains the rail so i didnt try it and i was tryin to get outta the hole better it should cut a low 1.8 maybe even a low 1.7 ive seen a few trucks before do it. im thinking the tire pressure has something to do with it. wat did you run your truck at for tire pressure?

Get a lift pump and try the quad on 135. I too noticed the lack of fuel at the top end with the quad. Throw a hot EFI tune on it and shred the tranny for sure.

i dont have a muff either. they didnt look at anything on my truck just gave me a hard time about not wanting to put my address/phone info on the paper

Maybe try launching a bit harder...and play with tire pressure.
this is wat i was thinking she came outta the hole nicely but didnt spin at all... i might drop the pressure some more and try building 12-15psi off the line! hopefully that will help i was very happy with the trap! she was moving pretty good for just a canned tuner! and no tranny mods!

30lbs front 25lbs rear. i ran the 135 with lift pump so never experienced draining the rail. get lift pump and be done with it :D you should be in mid-high 13s with 135 and LP depending on your 60ft. 8-10lbs seems to be the sweet spot for launching anything above 12lbs gets a bit sketchy.
