1/8mile Drags!

First time drag racing, had an awesome time. Best time of 10.44 at 70mph. I averaged 10.6 at 68.5. Was surprised how well the truck kept up with the Honda's and Nissan's. Was neck and neck with a 93 240, beat a Jetta GLI turbo, Blazer and an old 289 Mustang. All the Civics beat me, some by a lot, others barely. Lined up against a 350z and challenger, and I thought they'd actually be a lot faster. In the 8th mile you can't really destroy anyone unless you have a great reaction time and take off. For kicks I raced a corvette and SS camaro. Check it out!!

Video!

Sounds like you dropped the clutch a tad too hard but even then I think you would have spun. Lock it up next time.

I did drop it a little early. The track was slippery. I dumped it at 1500 RPM and tires couldn't catch just spun like crazy. You are correct, either way I would have spun. I thought about the locker but feared that I'd break it on the pavement. The ASLD seemed to work okay.. I tried a run with all electronics off and it was a bad start, so I kept the LSD on the whole time

At least it was good enough to beat that Jetta! Or I should say, smoke the Jetta haha
