Went back to the track to try and sneak past the 5 second barrier and was able to just pull it off. Last time we ran a 6.07 we were 4700lbs. We took off 120lbs for this pass and added 2 more psi boost. Still on our 100 shot as well. Also attached is our new PB boost only pass. Was on 16* timing for boost and I pulled out 3 degrees for the nitrous run. Think there is a video somewhere too. will try to get it up soon.

Thank you sir. We definitely need the spray to compensate for the weight but it works. Also had alot better air last night. I'm sure that was part of it.

Bad ass, welcome to the 5 second club.
Stiller 60'
Thank you sir. A promod went down our lane right before me so I figured I could hit it kind of early with the spray.

Basically only drive it on the street. We put it in race trim rarely. Sometimes going a couple years without racing. It is literally a grocery getter. Goes to the store, out to eat, or to the golf course lol. Running pump e85 (tested 83%). No cage (I know unsafe). Modified our wipers to work with the big ole 3.2 powerflow plenum. We drive it in the rain so we needed it. All solid glass. Stock interior still. No removal of front steel bumper or frame horns. No removal of steel supports in doors. A/C and heat working great. Our weight reduction on the street consists of a roll pan and fiberglass leaf springs. That's it. At the track we pulled passenger seat, tailgate, and run lightweight battery.

Truck is a beast! Would love to see more pics of your truck.
I will have to take some.. it is my dad's truck so I don't have alot on hand. I just wrench on it and tune it. In turn I get to race it.
