Not so great night at the track!
First off I borrowed a trailer and decided to tow the truck rather than drive it. (save a little gas)
So I get to the track, make a pass and noticed that I am out of fuel! But, the truck ran a 8.90 & 75mph 1.90 60ft! So, I get this brillant plan to run some 112 race gas! Make another pass and my mph drops to 72!! So I decide to hot lap to make sure that this was right!
I leave the starting line, then notice my truck isn't shifting! Huh?? (What gear is it in?) About 550' out I realize it left in 2nd! It ran the whole 1/8 mile in 2nd and ran a 9.3 @ 72 with a 2.00 60 ft! Opps!!
So, I let the truck cool for 2 hours. I get back in and decide to make another pass. Except, this time I am going to shift it! (Brillance) I leave in 1st, shift to 2nd, then 3rd???? 3rd???? jiggle??? !!!WOOOAAA!!! "neutural" 8,000rpm here we go!!
Ouch,, trailer here we come!!
It only made some funny noise in the shut down, then it cleared up!
I wonder what I should check??
