Default 1/4 mile runs - 2011 Express!

Went to Z-max tonight. Took off the tailgate and spare tire. Other than that truck is exactly how i got it 2 weeks ago.
Best Run:
R/T: .125
60': 2.34
1/8: 9.67 @ 74.53
1/4: 14.898 @ 91.84

I realized on my first run that if the truck is in "manual shift" mode, then it only shifts from 1st to 2nd. At the top of 2nd gear it just hits the rev limiter. But when I put it in drive and let it shift, my MPH was a little higher but my E/T was down. Highest trap speed was 94.76 (don't know how that happened)

Worst Run:
R/T: .172
60': 2.36
1/8: 9.75 @ 73.99
1/4: 15.028 @ 91.24

6 runs total and only a little more than a tenth between best and worst runs....the truck is consistant!!

Nice runs!

Now you have a baseline to compare against when you start to mod.

Nice times for a bone stock truck! Is it RWD or 4WD? Also what gear do you have?

That's pretty good for that big ol' truck with that gear. I wouldn't have guessed that at all. these trucks just have a ton of power.

Quick time. My R/T did it in about the same time full weight with the 22s and bald tires. But my track sucked lol. These express are really impressive, reminds me of the fox body 5.0 lx
