    113.88MPH trap speed on the 11.951 pass. The N2O passes dont smoke like that ;) On the N2O passes I look too much like a gasser running down the track :rolleyes:

    My Buddies running 12s with a 480HP 396 1968 Camaro. I can wait to bust his balls! Let me tell you it's fast but It will not hook up like 4 wheel drive!

    Have fun, you crazy man!

    13 flat to 12.70's or so depending on track and weather. Hopefully with a bit more traction tweaks, good weather, good prep I will be able to get in the 11.8's on spray and 12.5's on fuel.......I may do some tweaks though that will hurt my fuel times all in favor of getting better times on spray. We shall see. I have a few more tricks to try out.

    Does your tts programming run off of a laptop where you can set up separate profiles for n2o and without it????

    That'd be the cat's a@@ if you could set up n2o/gas/mileage configs - 11's at the track and 21 mpg on the highway!

    I alwasy run with it set to kill. It drives just fine and gets normal milage if I keep my foot outa it. Well once I hit the interstae for a raod trip and hit the cruise I turn it down. Other wise all the extra power can flake out the cruise, you go up a little hill and it gives it the throttle it thinks it needs witch is too much and then backs off when you crest and it takes it awhile to figure it out and settle down, kinda gives you a surgeing. Its switchable on the fly, 80hp added or so, 120 or so added and then the level that puts me about 500 to the rear wheels total. www.ttspowersystems.com Its Steve Cole's company. I also plow with it turned down to the 80hp added level.

    Does the tail gate really cause drag? I see you have it off.

    not really its more of a weight deal. I drop the spare and try to clean out the tool box ect. Even with "lightening" my truck up I dont pick up much ET. A heavy diesel motor that torque heavy dosnt seem to respond as favorably as a gasser if you pulled the same amount of weight off. It falls into the every little bit helps and it cant hurt category.
