    Was the fourth pass of the event and we still didn't have enough time. Still need to activate the 2step.

    That was a 1.48 sixty.

    This stupid truck easily did a 9.4sec pass without any effort; made it look easy and very deceiving and quiet. And it's pissing me off that it's on the coat tails of my truck and will soon pass it, lol.

    LOL you built the machine that will take yours down! I bet that 2step is going to help tremendously. It was pretty deceiving off the line, it looked like it unloaded and then just barely moved foward until finally rolling out, but damn 1.48 is still impressive

    Ya, it did just that. When we get a harder/more psi launch, the truck will stay in the squat position and not pop back up.
    Then we'll start fine tuning the shocks.

    I'd like to see a 1.299999 to 1.30001 sixty foot.

    thanks skeet, ya that was alton, the owner. he'll be piloting once it's line out.

    it has ladder bars; just needs more tweeking. it'll stay down with a harder launch.
