Default Bad day at the track

Went to the track today and all I can say is the truck needs a better tune. Well at least a better tuner. I would fire myself but who would I hire. With boost set at 20lbs it would either bog or spin hard. So I played around and got my meth injection working and bumped the boost to 26lbs. I lowered the pressure in the drag radials, did a hugh burnout and guess what another 2.0184 60', but it was the best pass of the day. My laptops battery died in the middle of the pass about the same time the clutch went south. Oh well guess I will get another clutch installed and do some more tuning for the Jan 2010 tnt.

0.2641 RT
2.0184 60'
5.9746 330'
9.1128 @ 79.91 1/8
11.6787 @ 88.22 1000'

Nope track is just 1000'. My guess is it would have been a 13.8-14.2 1/4 pass. I just need to tune tune tune.

I would have figured it was because you were making so much horsepower they limited you like they do the Top Fuel guys.

The tune is all most done and all I can say is it runs so much better now. Now it will spin the tires in the top of 1st and 2nd and just smoke the clutch at the top of 3rd and 4th. Just waiting on the new flywheel to arrive then the new clutch will get installed. Will also be installing the big valve head and bo 1.5 cam.
