Dude 9.69 9.70 UF has pinion angle issues bad day for him blowing the tires off.
I never like to use slicks the first outing trying to set a best. They seem to work best after being heated and then sitting overnight. I know Frank dropped a bit of weight. But to cause drastic pinion angle issues???That would be weird since the truck is well dialed in.

Probably tried to add extra pinion angle. Would invest in double adjustable shocks if he hasn't already. Would be interested to see what the time slips looked like too.
