Hey yall I just went out last weekend for the first time and feel i got some pretty good times... best time was 14.2 @ 92 (mods are in my sig) 60ft times were all around 1.8-1.9 .
The thing is if i tried to launch at anything over 12psi I would get a lot of front end hop. Ive heard a lot of guys talkin about strapping the front end down but cant find anything on how to correctly do it. any ideas on strapping it down or anything else would be great, thanks guys

When I had my 04 I always launched at 1900rpm with no hop on 35s. I ran a 13.9 with intake, exhaust and a tune from Eric. I don't know how fast you think it can go but with your lift and tire combo I'd say your 14.2 is pretty good!

As far as strapping the front down, if you wanna try that just take a heavy ratchet strap over the frame and around the axle tube and crank it as hard as you can.

If you want, Mason Dixon Dragway in Boonsboro MD is doing their diesel drags this weekend. Test and tune on Saturday and racing on Sunday if you wanna give it another go.
