Default Hit up Little River tonight

I took my Ram to Little River Dragway in Temple tonight with a few buddies. Lots of fast cars there but we all had some traction issues. Some worse than others. I didn't go all out but wanted a few shake down runs to see where I stood, full trim, street tires, no weight reduction and still had my tonneau cover on the back.

My first run was against a Mustang, maybe an ’02-04 model. Traction was a bit of a problem but not too bad. My reaction time was .4173, 2.16 60ft, and ran a 13.14 @ 104.36. Was babying it a little as it was the maiden voyage with the new setup. Oh yea… I got the win. He ran a 14.25.

Second run wasn’t all out but with more gusto. Ran a 350Z. My reaction time was .4231, 2.0962 60ft, and ran a 12.9656 @ 106.11. I got the win. He ran a 13.98.

I only got to run twice because one car dropped oil in the left lane while another dropped antifreeze in the right lane and they needed to clean it the whole length of the track... long job.

I'm pretty happy with the times considering traction and running full trim. Had a great night!

Thanks Freddie,
It's a 360 stroked to a 410ci, forged, 8.8 pistons, R/T heads flowed to 285, hot cam, M1, custom exhaust, built tranny, 4.56's, gear vendor, and that night only pushing 6lbs of boost through am intercooled Vortech YSi, tuned with a FAST XFi2.

All wrapped up as a sleeper...

I used to run bikes back there in the 90's. loved running the track but I found it hard to slow down in the shut down area going around the curve in the end with an 8 second bike.
Hopefully they have fixed that and straitened it out by now. That track means alot to me as its where my Wife and I first got together.
Have fun.
Rick
