Default Took my '13 Ram Express to the track last night..

My truck is a '13 Express Reg. Cab 4X2. Mods are Vararam Intake, BD Tuner on Regular Tune, 3.55 Gears, 1/2 tank of gas. Made 3 runs, I'll post pics of time slips later, but my best run was a 14.749 @93.23 mph with a 2.044 60'. DA was 2,323' with some wheel spin, not much though, haven't corrected ET for DA but should be around a 14.2 or 14.3 I think. There was a '14 Ram R/T with 4.10's, stock with 4400 miles on it he ran a 14.178, didn't see the mph. With my gears and the few mods I have I'm very pleased for a 5000lb truck. Comments or tips welcome.

Thanks, I guess I could have took the spare tire and tailgate off and a little less fuel might have got me a 14.6 or 14.5.

I got my 14.60@96mph with the tailgate off and the spare tire removed. Mine was mostly stock at the time with about 4000 miles on the clock. I only had the stock muffler removed.

I raced last night but we are at like 5000 feet and I spun bad, ran a 15.5@91mph. I only got one run at the midnight madness event because there were about 400 cars. I sat in the staging lanes all for 3 hours. After my run I said "F this" and went and sat in the stands to watch because when you are in the lanes you can't even see the racing.

Wednesday I ran 15.10@94mph which I think is good for being up in the mountains. I went slower in Vegas which is lower elevation.

14.7 is pretty good for these trucks. I'd be interested to see what the truck does on a 93 tune. Did you manually shift it? Cross the line in 2nd or 3rd gear? Did you lower your tire pressure in the back?

No manual shifting, just put it in drive and let it shift. It was shifting into 3rd gear about 60' from the line. I didn't take any air out of the tires either, I wanted to run it just like it sets on the street, next time I go, I'll do all the track prep and see the difference.

You were actually shifting into 4th 60' from the end, if you had started off in 2nd and shifted to 3rd right after the 1-2 shift then you would have probably gone through the lights in 3rd.
