I don't think I can duplicate Tom's 60' times on stock tires. I was able to get down to a 2.0. Maybe I can get some more. Now when I have slicks on there, the gap between Tom and I will narrow. Launching with slicks is easier and nitrous doesn't care if it's hot outside.D Davis said:Congats Steve.
It's nice to see the truck puttin down some 12s, also those are some GREAT 60' times, if you can duplicate his this summer, it will be awsome.
sorry to hear you didn't get to have a full n20s run.

Slightly let it out. He actually thought he slipped it too much. Sure smelled like he did. I've only run a couple of time since his run. Each time better than before but no huge breakthrough.adams2003 said:Slipped the clutch? Do you mean he popped it or he slightly let it out?
Nice slip, Bill Fletcher just ran a [email protected] MPH in his 2WD Cummins.9 seconds said:For your viewing pleasure.
Yep, when it comes to Cummins Diesels, nothing can beat them in torque specs.Got Juice? said:Nice slip, Bill Fletcher just ran a [email protected] MPH in his 2WD Cummins.
Mark Harris's RED ROCKET a close second with a [email protected] 144 MPH also a 2wd Cummins.
Both were not using N2O yet as they are getting their suspensions dialed in.
Object lesson#1 When racing a diesel, check for a 4" or dual 4" exhaust (its not there for looks folks)
Object lesson #2 NEVER EVER race one for cash.... we usually use the side bet money for more NAWS or an even bigger turbo or another turbo or bigger injectors so we can really whoop next time.
Object lesson #3 When handing over the BLING BLING try to be gracious in defeat. It really is hard for ust to take your money without smiling, so try to be consideraqte of that.
Object lesson #4 If you wanna go 2 out of 3 the bet Quadruples. NO EXCEPTIONS!
Good times overall.... Keep pushing the envelope guys!
FYI if you purchased a 1994-7 Ram with mechanical 12valve engine in it and threw 8K in mods at it, it would cost less than half of an SRT-10, get twice the fuel economy, pull a trailer with ease AND make you laugh like heck!!!
(torque makes most people giddy, and we got that in spades!)
