Just got back from the 1st pull!!!!

I just got home from the first pull with the new truck. Didn't get any video one of the girls is starting to get sick and momma stayed home with her. The truck ran great leaving the line around 5500 and turned 7500 throug the middle of the track.

Ended up in 5th outta 5 but the truck went straight and stayed in one piece. I've gotta fix some setup issues I think I've got the front end to low and it is'nt transfering till about 150ft.

The footages were:

1st 332.??
2nd 325.??
3rd 317.??
4th 316.??
5th 315.11

A little work and we'll go try the usual sled next weekend.

When in doubt mat it out!!

Good deal, no breakage, thats a good thing!!

That sure is a tight grouping 3,4,5. Sounds like the luck of the draw might have put you higher in the standing!!

Keep working, your on the right track.

I salute our troops. Thanks for your service.

Good run

Boy even though you got 5th. Looks like you were competing quite well with the distances so close. Truck pull season is upon us. Do you have any more pics off your truck? At your next pull get a video up. Love to see the truck going down the track. Good Luck on the rest off the season.

Its not a truck if its not a Ford
