    Your truck should run good. You're about 1000 lbs lighter!! And you'll be able to launch in 4wd! leave on the third yellow!!!

    Sounds like you had fun! Congrats..The nearest strip to me is about 80 miles of ugly freeway!. Lot of hassle to see what the dually would do!

    Ryan, what is the empty weight on your truck?

    I just stopped up at the Co-op and scaled mine, with my fuel transfer tank not even in the truck, I was at 7300lbs. God that seems heavy!

    I can't wait to see what she'll do. I would be very happy with mid 12's. Did you clamp your springs or anything?

    PHil, My truck weighs in around 7500 with a half tank of fuel and without me in it.

    I didn't run any clamps or anything. I just ran it. I was told in the 1/8th mulitply your et's by1.58 to get a 1/4 time. So I was just over 14 for a 1/4 pass. But I was spinning off the line everytime. I can't wait to get my sleeves to run in 4hi. Should get my a lot better times so i can leave with more boost.

    Why to go aggar, what to take mine to the track some time just have not got up the nerve. Live 10 miles from Atlanta Dragway so there is really no excuse not to.

    Get out there and give it a go. You'll be nervous at first but get a few runs under your belt and have fun. I can honestly say that has been the best $15 dollars I spent in a while. It was a test and tune deal and you could have run as many times as you wanted. I did 7 and said I had my fun on the Nittos! They didn't like it to well!
