To reach 12.00 flat off your 1/8th mile time you posted at 4400 pounds your running 500whp or close to 600 hp at the crank with 16% drive line loss which gives you the 500whp you need to move that 4400 pounds.


Here's a little something you can play with from now on.

Thanks for the kind words fellas. I've been owning the truck since new of 2004 and have poured a lot into it to have it where it is today.

And to LittleRiver, our trucks have more like a 22%-23% drive train loss.

can you imagine how much better our times would be if it were only a 16 percent dl lost?

Its got me up around 430ish at the crank, I figured I was around 410 at the crank so its close. We have more drive line loss like mentioned, so I think I'm close to what I figured.
Supposed to go to the track tomorrow so hope to get some decent times, no records cause the interior is staying in, but I am going to run the dr's and torque tubes. I also bought some octane boost so I'm going to see how much timing I can push, can I add fuel and keep adding timing?

All my dodge does is get the toys where they are going so I'll take your word on that.
