well, meet was awesome!! everyone was having a good time and got to see all the trucks in person that i have only seen online... and if you ran post up your times!!!

my first run ever was a 15.334 @ 93.02 mph (launched to high of rpm in 2nd and got horrible wheel hop)

second was a 16.309 @ 93.72 mph (launched in third and bogged )

third was my best at a 15.280 @ 94.72 mph (launched a little over idle in 2nd)

i know my runs can be inproved on, next time im trying 4wd!!

my last race of the night against the 1stgen was one of the best races... if you look at the times were within 0.1 the whole time!!!!


sorry about leaving so early too.. my girlfriend was cold and b*tchy... needless to say im coming solo to the next meet lol

It was definitely a good time, met a few people and had some fun. I was launching soft in 2nd, 2wd about 1200rpm to try and keep tire spin to a minimum. Next time I'm gonna have some methanol in my w/m tank not just water, then I should be able to break into the 14's. I tried to scan my time slips so I could post a picture, but the quality wasn't good enough. I guess I forgot to introduce myself before we raced Matt, my name's Sam, and that was a very close race.

Sorry I missed the meet and greet. But it was great to see a bunch of Diesels down at the track.

First Pass
12.29 @ 109

Second Pass
12.27 @ 108

Third Pass
12.24 @ 109

Fourth Pass
12.19 @ 109

Got to love the cooler air as the Nite went on.Rip started to get the new motor in the 05 race truck dialed in and on the last pass of the nite the head gasket let go.

Hey Matt,
Are you running the TNT on #9? Do you have fass or airdog? Just curious because it looks like we have the same mods. Just wondering where my truck falls with 1/4 times since I haven't been to the track yet.
