Well went to No Problem again last night.
Got only two runs in, it was quite busy and at 8 o clock they started the Gambler's Race, which I wasn't going to do, so I got only two runs in between 6:30 and 8 pm when the Gamblers race started.
Both runs in 2WD
First run I launched a bit too hard and spun a decent amount off the line.
Resulted in a
15.517 @ 91.01
Then after 45 minutes of cool down I decided I'd give it another go.
DA was like -700
Did a nice tire warm up and was ready to go.
Absolutely nailed the launch.
60 foot time was 2.076
from a Laramie Crew Cab 4x4 in 2WD mode on the stock street tires!!!
I knew this was going to be a sweet run that beat my last weeks time of
14.798 @ 92.00
on that run my 60 foot was 2.129 and the DA was like 200 feet.
BUT, then third gear for some reason or another decided to short shift.
I didn't see the rpms that it was at, but it shifted to third and a split second later
it shifted again and there was a stumble and drop in power.
So my time was
15.087 @ 89.33
I'm confident that without that short shift I'd of been high 14.6's @ 92+ mph
out of a this tank of a truck. btw, this short shifting isn't new to me, i've had other cars (including both my BMW 335i's that would occasionally do that, it's just a shame it happened on the best run this truck would of made. 2.0 60 foot time on a truck of this size and weight in pure stock mode is pretty insane)
All runs were with the truck in full auto mode, 2WD, traction control off with a bit of brake torque launching. Mirrors were out and tailgate was on and in the up position.
This truck has the 8 speed auto and 3.55 gears.
