Default Took the Express to the drag stip

Took my new 2011 Express to the Famoso raceway test&tune this weekend and had a blast!

All runs were done with tow/haul engaged and traction control disengaged, manually shifting to include second prime.

Here are the highlights:

First run out straight off the highway, 40 psi on the tires - 14.822@96.62

Best run of the day @ 30psi on the rear tires: 14.672@96.40

Sunday I decided to do some mild weight reduction to see what I could squeeze out of her. Removed spare tire, tailgate and jack, took me 10 minutes. Best run of the day and the weekend: 14.363@98.49

Overall I am very impressed by this truck and very happy with my times

Excellent run, and that's even with a lot of room for improvement with the 60 ft time.

Did you pull out the air filter cartridge to make your runs?

@Dustinmc15
Yeah I think with a 2.0 60' I should be able to cut a 13.99. There was another ram out there on 265/65/r17's and he was sub 2.0 60' and ran 13's but trapping around 95MPH. Its got the power If I can just get it moving a little quicker off the line. Maybe some more weight reduction and smaller tires.

@GTyankee
Kept the filter in, didn't really mess with anything under the hood. You thinking of a poor mans ram air lol

@blue beast
Nice! Looks like 13's will be easier than I thought! I was running at the same temp, around 55 deg.

@moparornocar72
I wont be turning the truck in to a drag racer or anything, just wanted to take her out and see what she will do. Trying to unlock the performance potential of this truck while spending the least amount of money.

Thanks. I had my spare tire out too. I'm trying to get mine dyno'd this week to get a good base line on what it is doing now. Still waiting on the programmers to come out. Got big plans for mine. 
