yeah but with n/a the wheel didnt spin much at launch it wheel hopped more than anything else with that huge burnout I did right before and my jacked rear.

Skyy, how much time did it take you to install the explorer rear on your truck? And whats all the work involved with this I know I need to change the brake master and weld new brackets for the shocks, but I have no experience at all into welding, I'm buying a mig or arc welder next week.
Currently debating on if I weld the 7.5 rear for this summer or swap it right away to the 8.8 but I wan't to drive my truck this summer not next...

I'm sure when I start running boost (next summer probably) on either this truck or another truck As an actual project build I'll end uP destroying a 7.5" by then haha. I really want a drifter truck so I'm looking for a slightly older ranger that can take the old TC parts and just Mack on the track. Or get a TC that runs and strip it down into a monster lol.

You take your 2.5 and build it and run 30 psi boost and make it to a real monster. With a locked rear of course and 1 set of tire per week lol. Tonight was totaly insane on the track I had my dirtbike and damnnnn got kicked out cuz of too much wheelies loll did 15.20 on a REALLY BAD start (wheeling 2 times) with a 90 mph trap, was on cutoff since half the quarter(13,000 rpm) and let go a little to give that engine a chance lol my bike got banned from that place, too much wheelies and burnouts

Mhhh how stupid can we act sometimes LOLLL next time I go to that track is with my red truck.
