I usually run 1/4 mile, so I will have to double check my slips when I get home, but I'm pretty sure my 1/8 mile times are 9.3s/9.4s at Virginia Motorsports Park but I also run at Maryland Intl Raceway (MIR/Budds Creek). Its a 2011 RCSB 2WD Express, 99% stock with 3.55 gears, the factory 20s on back, 17s on front, Sonnax and a catch can. I go through the water and do a mild burnout (turn off traction control!) just like I do in my cars with drag radials - just enough to start seeing smoke in the side mirror, then drive out of it. Still with traction control off, it doesn't spin and my best 60ft is 2.175. On New Years Eve, my girlfriend and I raced in the New Years Nationals at Richmond Dragway which was 1/8 mile. She raced my truck while I raced the Camaro. We left the factory 20s on front and back and she drove around the water, no burnout and left traction control on. I don't remember her 60ft, but she ran a 9.51 on her 4th pass getting faster every run because she had never raced before and was still getting used to it - picking her dial-in was a nightmare!!
