AutoBred speaks the truth
it only matters where the rubber meets the road and there's a slip in your hand.
Brad babied it off the line, rolled into it gently and backed off the throttle when it was shifting, then eased into it again....repeat.
Very conservative driving to say the least, not sure I could have resisted going balls out if it was me, but he wants to preserve his tranny until he feels more confident.
With that said, he still ran 13.7's, just about 100mph iirc at 2500+ DA
all stock shift points, 5600 rpm, 3.55 gears, open diff full street trim.
His previous best NA with 93 tune, maxed shift points (6200) was 14.5's-14.7's
I know on my Reg Cab (400 pounds lighter) with my 3000 stall TC,
and 4-DR's on my lightweight rims it will run 12's with Boost.
My best time NA is 13.8's at 2500' (13.4 corrected)
As far as Dyno #'s go to adress concerns
#1 Mustang vs DynoJet
That one Ripp did was on a Mustang Dyno
on an R/T bone stock with 4.10's, and a 2600 stall TC
and likely a 3rd gear pull
Our Dyno guy is also a Diablo CMR and prefers 4th gear pulls
He also uses a DynoJet , not a Mustang.
Truck is a 10' Sport QC 4x4, 3.55 gears, stock stall (2300)
Not sure how or if weather comes into play, or DA
but the temp is on the bottom of the dyno sheet (68ºF)as is the humidity
we are at 2500' elevation in Northern Canada. if that matters to you.
