    Default This winter has me excited

    A little update if you've followed anything from me on here. I was FBO the last time I went to the track... which was last July. Well I bought a Circle D 2600 after my last set of passes and finally got it installed last month. Made my way to the track and met some great people over the weekend. For what my truck weighs, I feel like it runs it's ass off. I went 8.52 @ 80 in some nasty 1500-2000 DA (depending on what site you look at).

    I pulled up to 2.5 degrees of timing, which I think I can attribute to the motor torquing on shifts and truck shaking at higher mph due to unbalanced tires. All of those push my stock dipstick onto a header primarily. I've got a few things to do coming up, like installing a flexible Lokar dipstick, balancing tires and installing a wideband. I want the wideband to be safe and also to squeeze the last bit of juice out of the 5.7 that's pushing 98k miles now.

    Here is my new mods list:

    2015 Ram Crew Cab 4wd - 8.52 @ 80.82 in 1913 DA
    Mods - Greene Racing custom tuned, JBA 1 3/4" LT's, No Cats, Fastman 82mm TB, ATI 15% Underdrive pulley, Circle D 2600 converter, Clutch Fan delete, Cutout, and 160 Tstat.
    Prep - No gate, spare or rear seat, and running SS/T wheels with 235/65R17 street tires and a can of Madditive Octanium.

    I'll attach pictures so you can see how "goofy" my truck looks in track form compared to daily driving. I have TTC 1223 overload springs in the rear and Bilstein leveling struts set @ 2.1" in the front.

    And I'll add this.. You guys that don't race much or at all anymore, get free time to go to the track! Youngsters like me appreciate seeing yall. I met some awesome folks this past weekend and am glad I'm back in my home state with a great community.
