Nice job man. I ran my old 350 with a th350 yrs ago. I think I ran 16.4os 16.50s ,, but I'm positive I could get more now. It's not as choked down anymore

You might have a lower e.t. or top speed if you run with a tailgate up----maybe.

Do iiiiiit. Nothing like seeing the lights coming down to get your blood pumping. Btw good times there

Had the tailgate off. My brother did mention after that trucks have some weird aero characteristics and it might be better with it on and up. Guess i gotta go back again and see. Hah ;) anyway if nothing else,  i shed a few pounds with it. I couldnt launch hard at anything over about 2500 due to no weight back there though.

It is a hurst shifter. Was it stock? I have no clue. Anyway the throws are still very long. Took all my speed to shift decently fast. On the drive home i seat swapped with my brother in his mustang with a short shifter and i was amazed. All i had to do was twist my wrist and i could get to any gear. :O

I did run my my truck thrusday night
I went up a against a stock 2016 powerstroke dually and a stock 2014 Z71 with 22's. I lost against both but. It was close tho, losing by a truck and a half to both . I could read the plates well lol
I'd Say my truck almost 40 yrs old did pretty good. We did some roll races and that's were it was even closer. Those tall tires kill my take off.

Holy cow man! A truck an a half ain't bad. Those new trucks are no slouches. What's your setup?
