Yeah, it's a great track and I'm fortunate to be only 15 mins away from it! Those are some pretty good times, what do you have done to your truck besides gears (what ratio?) and TC? What kind of numbers do you anticipate with the TC? Let me know if you do come up, I'd like to see your truck run.

For reference I own a Challenger with the 5.7, its got a custom tune through a Diablo Predator, Corsa cat back, CAI, catch can, and a 180 T stat. I've only run the 1/8 mile, but its been around a 8.90 at just under 80 mph. My 60 foot times were around 2.10. For comparision to Tyler B's times, you can see our speed is about the same, but his times are much better, mainly due to his better gears and the fact that he is hooking up much better. My Challenger probably weighs almost 2000 lbs less than your truck.

You'd be surprised but the LX cars are pretty hefty. I think they're in the neighborhood of 4200-4400. That's still about 250lbs lighter than my truck without me(225lbs).

Nice. Probably would take a lot more mods for me to get thoses kinda numbers out of my quad cab pig, lol.

Spare tire removal would help as well

Those are decent times for your mods, you would see a nice drop in times with ARH headers and a torque converter. You will at some point need a LSD rear, no matter what gear you choose, one wheel peel will only let you go so far. If you aren't going to heavily track prep the truck, you can't expect to get into the low 14's on those wheels, its just too heavy and not enough mechanical advantage in the rotating mass. Keep at it, every little thing helps, along with practice.
I should be going to the track tomorrow, hoping to get into the mid 13's in track trim, and 13's in street trim.
