Default Track day @ OSW

Finally ran the big blue beast! So let me start by saying it's the first time I've ever taken my truck to the track. I'll post up pics of my times slips but thankfully I had a fellow Z member there by the name of SnRusnak who can verify lol My truck set up is JBA headers, TCI 2600RPM stall torque convertor, Magnaflow Y-pipe with 14" Flowmaster muffler (i know i know go with magnaflow) and 285/45/22 Fortura tires on R/T rims. I made 4 passes and the slips look like this:
1st
16.6 ET @ 89MPH, 3.7 60', R/T 3.77, 1/8th @73.34. I spun really f-ing hard out of the hole. Got nervous and just floored it when the green light went off and let off before the end by accident. It gets better I promise
2nd
R/T .700, 60' 2.42, 1/8@ 70.81, ET 15.6@87.38MPH
3rd-learned a bit more
R/T .618, 60' 2.182, 1/8@ 72.35, ET 15.157@89.30
4th-last run hot lapped after the 3rd before the track closed
R/T .294, 60' 2.128, 1.8@ 9.575, ET 14.957@89.71
I was stoked to hit high 14's before I left. I was hoping for mid 14's but it's hard to launch this damn peg leg right. There's definitely room for improvement even on the 22's, hoping to have some sticky 17's for next time though
Overall I had a blast, and hopefully SnRusnak will run his truck next time. Word of advice if your ever lined up against a white 2011 RCSB Ram in Orlando, don't run him just walk away nicely lol He ran a low 12 with that bottle fed baby of his while another guy ran mid 13's in a QCSB 11 Ram

Peg Leg 3.55, my downfall. I can't launch hard or I just spin really bad which is what happened on the first run. I took everyones advice that was there and "rolled" into it giving about half throttle and then gunning it from there and on the last run it worked pretty well. I think I could get it down to a 14.7ish if I worked on it a bit more maybe, just felt like there was still room for improvement on the launch to knock another tenthish off.

OK OK I'll run next time, as long as you keep running in the 16's with me

Follow this advice lol. I raced Josh from a roll on Hwy 50 after leaving the track and well...you know the rest haha. Man his truck flies (12.4 ET) but he sure is braver than I running 175 shot...

I had a great time, looking forward to next time.

You're an evil little man, even if you are taller than me I'm sure Josh took off like a bat out of hell, he said he wants to go up to a 200 shot, I'll be there with a camera to watch the inevitable kaboom

^haha all in good fun, just messing with you. Yeah he's a little nuts running that much. Only a matter of time IMO, although he swears it's not dangerous lol. And it's amazing how much faster it looks on Hwy 50 than on the track...

My exact thoughts.

You know though, I'll be the one screwed when he does blow it up, since he only lives 5 minutes from me I'll be the one towing him home

Days at the track are a blast when you have other guys with similar trucks to run with. My first time at the track with my 03 ram was good for a 15.2. 6 months later I was going 13.9, and then it was all over from there. Once you get hooked, its a tough habbit to break.

Your times are only going to get quicker from here.
