Re: Stupid ?

You might be able to drop the time just by tweaking your current setup. Talk to your tuner and find out if there is any fuel left. Get your suspension dialed in and get sticky tires. Also spending more time at the track and getting your reaction times, etc. dialed in helps.

Re: Stupid ?

Put the truck on a diet. Take everything out or off that you don't need. Cut down on your fuel level - not a full tank. Leave your tools, spare and tailgate with a buddy while you run. Every couple hundred pounds you can shed make a difference.

Re: Stupid ?

Just a really good launch might make a nice difference too. Do they have any test and tune nites near you?

Re: Stupid ?

Yep weight will make a difference.That fuel tank in the bed had to cost you some ET.

Re: Stupid ?

Yea a few more runs to find out best launch method would help a lot and shedding weight should be simple, get rid of the 110 gallon tank in the back, spare tire, tools, one battery and half tank of fuel, check, check, double check. Hard to get better tuning over the phone though, live tuning would be awsome and need to do something about ICP, was a bit low at 2400 at 37.5 duty cycle. Did I mention that was way fun.

Re: Stupid ?

12's are very easy for you.I bet you could do it with just a diet.That track had some serious traction issues especially the rt lane.
