Default My runs at the track tonight (short video)

Camera wanted to act stupid so only got 2 runs worth uploading.

Anyways,

1st run, 13.59 @ 102.97 with a 2.07 60'

2nd run, 13.59 @ 103.01 with a 2.07 60'

3rd run, 13.51 @ 103.21 with a 2.05 60'

4th run, 13.46 @ 103.71 with a 2.06 60'

5th run, 13.57 @ 102.95 with a 2.07 60'

I think track prep was less than great tonight, talked with others who felt the same. Especially on my first run I was spinning all the way down the track, which right after that run they prepped some more and it seemed to help some but I was hooking better last November in 40* temps. Think it's gonna be hard to beat last years best without that crisp cold fall air.

The duramax ran a 13.32 @ 101.80

Didnt sound like you were spinning. At least you were pretty consistent. That truck jumped out quickly. When I race that Titan he jumps out on me as well and then I have to reel him in. Maybe the track prep will be better next time

The runs in the video were a little later in the day. I had started shifting into second on my burnouts which seemed to help. What was happening was someone kept pulling water out of the box bad and I kept getting lined up in it and my tires wouldn't bite when I rolled out of my burnout so I started hitting the water at an odd angle where not too many guys where going which seemed to fix that issue

Close to it. I've got a magnapack catback, a k&n drop in filter which I don't really count as anything and a handheld tuner. And drag radials.


I have an eaton laying on the floor about 10' from me lol..... now if only the parts would randomly appear so I could put it on.


There was another guy out there with an 04 auto mach. he had ported heads from what he told me, and I could hear exhaust. he cut similar 60's to me but couldnt get his car out of the 13.7's-13.8's

You shouldnt be having traction issues on DRs.

I could have aired down some more. But usually 30 psi will hook. Last weekend was opening weekend for the season but got rained out. The track seemed like it needs rubber. It looks different IMO right now

Well when I first ran the car last year I had aired way down and was bogging. There's such a long wait between runs I'm afraid to air down more mid day because it takes up such a big time window if it causes me to bog

I gotta blame the track on this one. Even if you had those tires aired way up, there's no reason why you shouldn't of been able to leave as hard as that stock stalled 3.55 geared Mach would let you.

Watched the vid again. Did you not heat up those DRs?

Edit..nevermind, lol
