    09 red truck new time

    We went out to SAR midnight madness with this red truck again.

    Best time was a 11.00 @ 126mph
    60' was a 1.71. These little slicks have to go
    1/8 mile was 7.12 @ 100mph

    Gotta hit some 10's!!!
    Gonna change out the big all terrain fronts with race wheels and get rid of the brake booster setup, cant hold boost very well


    Nothing great just an update

    Oh ya. Was only allowed to run once then had to go back to 1/8 mile runs

    we'll convert them to manual. Probably a large wilwood master and disc brakes on the rear.

    How much are you boosting at the start?

    Total boost for that run?

    Truck can only build about 1.5psi, but then it hits hard once the light turns green.
    I'd like to be getting 5-8psi minimum at the light.
    It's up to 11psi.

    get a 2step and forget the brakes !

    Only reason 65e is holding is .......... who knows, but launching at 1.5 psi might have to do with it

    11 psi BS......no freaking way !!!!! more like 13+ psi !!!

    Allen the two step does work. I can now build 5-8 psi with compared to 1-3. Hooking it will be the problem.
