Default Went to the 1/4 mile

this is from when i went to moroso for there event on March 2nd and 3rd of this year. I forgot to post it on this site.
(NHRA import nationals)

I ran in the E.T. 2 class which was all cars 13.99 and faster.

Ambient temp was 97*
Track temp was 115* surface AND MY INTAKE site about 1' off the track....... i know......

my best time of the weekend came in class qualifieing.....
this was on 13psi with a 93/100octane mix in the gas tank...
i didnt use the methanol cause it caused me to go incredibly rich so im gonna wait till i can get HPtuners.
1/4 mile E.T.- 13.194
1/4 mile MPH- 98mph
1/8 mile E.T.- 8.198
1/8 mile MPH- 81mph
60'- 1.866
R/T'- .033

I was running 13.3's to 13.4's pretty consistant.
so my dial in was in the 13.3 to 13.4 range through out the competition.

my 60's all weekend where low 1.9's to mid to high 1.8's on the pegleg

IT WAS HOT ALL WEEKEND....... bad sunburn

there where cars in my class- this was all bracket racing so no BS-
i did so well bascially because i had more experience then the competitors.... my best R/T of the weekend was a .007 the rest where all .03x or .02x so thats what got me so far in the competition. plus i dialed back the boost to 10psi to run the 13.4's and 13.5's consistantly.

ran a total of 12 times over the weekend.... so that shows you the reliability of my set-up and its slowest run was a 13.8 im not gonna count the bracket races because i was on the brakes before the end to make sure i didnt break out. so i was running slow times. nice being way out ahead and having the option to slow down.....

i was RUNNER UP @ THE EVENT- won $300

GET THIS ****!!!!!
i was runner up BECAUSE..... my dumbass didnt put enough gas in the truck. ran outta fuel @ 1000ft mark on the last run and he caught me...... they had us run the last 3 rounds consecutivly so i couldnt add any fuel or have really much time for cool down. i asked the official if i could have 1 minute to go put a gallon of gas in and he said no so i had to finish it off........ and ****ty for me i ran out..... rookie mistake. im gonna start going to alot of bracket races. this event was a huge event and im glad i did so well......

people loved the truck.... no one could find the turbo . and people couldnt beleive that it is daily driven and its a bone stock motor and a ONE TIRE FIRE.......


had fun...... gonna go to bradenton ASAP prolly this next thursday for T&T.


truck can hit 12's no problem...just need a cool or cold night. it was hitting third and bogging really bad. i need to move the 2nd to 3rd shift back 200rpm or so and just tune it in general.

next mods-
HPTUNERS 3bar SD and tune for methanol
Progressive controller for methanol
Turbo rebuild- 60-1 w/ .82a/r turbine
3000stall w/ tranny cooler
Ford 8.8"
1.6rr's + valvesprings

will easily put me in the mid 12's on 10psi

if you have extra money do a torque converter and HPtuners i guarentee you will hit @ least high 12's.....

my next goal is a 108+mph trap speed along with mid 12's on stock bottom end.

Nice runs despite the fact that it's been blisteringly hot down here recently.
