more details will come, probably from 1badharley

The truck had some throttle pedal issues, so we made something work that probably shouldn't, but we ended the day with a [email protected] 109, I don't have the slips in hand, the other Adam does, but the 60's were is 2.2 range, having problems pushing through the brakes, but overall, for shakedown runs, a 12.9 we were all well pleased, few more things to be addressed and we should be back at the track on Wednesday for some test and tune.

These times were a stock motor and a X-Race tune. and the truck weighs 3591 with driver.

I will post some videos (they suck) but I will post them none the less.

Adam H, Joel, Junebug, and Matt all did a great job!!

What is it with both 6.0 powered rangers having problems with pushing through the brakes??? can't watch the vids since i'm at work, but 12's is real good for shake down passes!!!

No. Ya'll almost killed the people in the PT Cruiser! LOL The truck seems to be running very well!
LOL, goes to show that smoke screens really do work, people freak and would rather run into on coming traffic then go through a cloud of smoke :doh:

Yea, dunno, guess its the coincidence.. we have an aersospace dual rear caliper kit on order, should rectify the problem.

very nice work. lol about that pt cruiser
Thanks!

both rangers are so light that with all the torq the diesels put out it cant hold it. that is why you see all the really fast cars have trans brakes. there is not to many options for the trans brake on a torqshift trans, higher stall on the converter, dual calipers on each rear rotor, and a trans brake might help. dont know at this time. give me some time. i will figure it out.

If the brakes aren't holding what about putting a parking brake on the back of the trans or on the rear axle like they do on medium and some heavy duty trucks. If you can't hold the wheels why not truck holding the drive shaft:shrug:

that is one of the thoughts we had. just dont know what the rules say about driveshaft brakes. when you start getting under 10 sec the rules get really strict. mainly for safety reasons. we have a few ideas we are working on. hopefully soon i can launch it better. 11.88 at 129mph is pretty good with a 60' time of 2.2. still getting tire spin but next week we should be alittle more dialed in on the suspension.

Hmmm those are still very good times I think. Only other thing that comes to mind is bigger wheels and bigger brakes which translates to more weight usually.
