    Default Had my first few passes this month..

    Just wanted to share my satisfaction and enthusiasm with some of you more original RAM guys. Looking back at this page and seeing how you're all mostly 10 years or more older than me, and how great this site must have been when you were 25, I'm sorry to see how things have slowed for this site. As everyone says I hope it returns to its former glory.
    Anyways, I've been wrenching on my truck for the past few years of owning it and wanted to share my times. I went to an 1/8 mile small town drag strip a few weeks ago and loved it. Couple of nights ago went to a big 1/4 mile and kinda felt overwhelmed. All in all a good experience, maybe I just don't like crowds. I ran an 8.49 @ 81.45 in the 1/8 after accidentally running my first pass on an 87 eco tune . Fast forward to this weekend: I did complete prep and this time on Sunoco 100 oct and ran a 13.20 @ 101.22. I'll be done for a few months now, but I'll keep the site updated periodically.
    Jay, if you're reading this I appreciate all the random questions I've sent you and for always finding time to check a log!

    Thanks. I think so too considering it weighs much more than a single cab. Vehicles don't have to be record breakers to be impressive!

    You can take advantage and use the weight for traction. Did that on my 03.
