3) change the serpentine belt to the short belt
4) tuck mirrors in (or if I'm in the mood..take side mirrors off)
5) remove tailgate
6) adjust the caltracs
7) lower tire pressure accordingly
What psi do you run your slicks at?

When i was running slicks on my last truck i was running 12 pounds. Start at 16 and work down . if there is a wobble as you go down go back up 2 pounds.

Default Drags for the 1st time

This is great advise. I've been to the drags hundreds of times. Last fall was my 1st time down the strip. I went to a test and tune night. There were only about 30 cars there (Wednesday night). Track People we very cool and helpful the didn't make you feel like and idiot. Had a blast. Ran a 15.8 at 87.2 MPH. Cut great reaction times. Bet every one at the tree every round.

I wanna say i have my slicks anywhere from 12lbs to 15 lbs...luckily when i had them early on I was able to go to a test and tune with not too many cars (I counted 12) and i was able to test different pressures.. and like AZ said, there was a guy with a really fast car and he was advising me about slicks and would watch me run and tell me what to do (guy in edelbrock shirt)...

Default Excellent heads up! Thanks

Great to see someone put a thorough list of "do's" and "don'ts" to make things a little less stressful at the strip. Great Job !
