Just a quick update from our visit to Bonneville salt flats for speedweek.
Best run of 179.2mph
6 runs total
Qualified for the B/DT record and backed it up at 177.9mph
Broke the lower shaft in the quickchange differential and replaced it out on the salt .
We were fighting drive pressure issues (pressure in the exhaust manifold) it was holding us back to about 2500 rpm in top gear.
New turbo/manifold and external wastegate going on for the next meet.
The truck is still street legal only difference is I run the skinny tires on the salt.
Here's a few pics from the meet.
