Default 12.3 @ 112.2MPH! Supercrew 5.0!

I made 16, yes 16 passes and most of them where 12.5** at 109.** with a few at 110mph. Track conditions were horrible in that no one was getting traction. My best 60' was 1.90*. I tried stalling to a lower rpm to gain traction but I found that my 60' times only got worse. I tried 2wd one times and the traction control kicked in at 4k rpm and shifted to 2nd making a 2.4 60' so I aborted the run.

I am extremely satisfied with my truck and my best time was manually shifting 2-3 shift to about 7300rpm. I also did this in the video but in the end the GTR shot past me. One GTR had 1100rwhp and ran a best of 8.97 @ 157 that I was, he was pissed because he couldn't get traction.




There guys were really cool. He has 710 rwhp from a procharger on a build boss engine. I beat him both times we ran, sorta. He ran a quicker et one of the times but only by 0.1 but I beat him through the traps.



My friend that was supposed to go with me ended up having to work so I didn't get any good videos. I also forgot to bring my window mount for my phone so I had to hold the camera or squeeze it between the headrest and seat.

Nice! Don't forget to add your time to the quarter mile times post under the engines section.

That's a great run!

Wow, that's some rpm. Not so sure I would drop that shift point just to take it easy in case the tune isn't spot on or you shift a bit late. That is moving in, congrats!

mechanic- Your truck is the epitome of SLEEPER. You should throw a set of stock 17" XLT wheels on there and nobody would know the wiser.

I did hit the rev limiter just one time and that was my second fastest run! did a 12.4 @ 111mph. I'm thinking of having the 1-2 set 100 rpm higher. Even though I've maxed the blower out it still loves to rev.

I believe 11s are possible with raising the shifts 100rpm, better track conditions, stock wheels, and smaller tires.

OH, the only weight reduction was removing the subs. These runs were with the spare and tailgate on!

Yea, my truck was the talk of the track. Almost everyone there came to look at my truck and asked questions. I never even entered the pit area until after the last run because everyone came to me lol. A couple GTR owners were butt hurt because they weren't getting the love and I was beating a few of them until about 1/2 way down the track because they were spinning so bad. There's more to drag racing than mashing the throttle fully off the line dudes!

Nice to see it running right, my only complaint? Don't drag and videotape. Use a holder. Would hate to see an injury. Nice running.
