You ran 11.3 quarter mile with the skid steer?

Alex
They only run 1/8 mile on the towing drag race so 11.3 in the 1/8th. Very respectable
James is correct, it is 1/8mi with a trailer and skid steer. My time was 13.13 seconds (not great that day) at a speed of 71.41mph (2nd highest of the day behind Richard Coker).


The truck has ran 11.39 ET at 126.85mph at ~8800ft DA. While not the most impressive, I'm not going to complain for my 2nd ever full power 1/4mi pass (2nd time with a tree) on 35" 4ish year old (315/75R16) BFG Mud Terrain tires. Needless to say, I'm hooked on asphalt racing vs sled pulls at this point. With the new turbo setup and the better coupling converter I think 10s should be extremely easy for this 7600lb pig.

So your 126 mph trap speed and 7600 lb weight puts you at 1,000 hp at the tires, I know you said the truck made 1340 but I'm guessing the variance there would be altitude?

7620lb @ 126.85 puts it around 1055hp to the tire according to Powerstroke Army's HP calculator (pretty accurate). 1340/2200tq is what it's corrected numbers were. The manifold density (pressure and temperature) the truck made on the dyno with nitrous is the same if not a touch lower than the manifold density the truck makes here in WI. The uncorrected number was ~1080hp the day before on a touch more nitrous than I used at the track. At the track the truck was loaded harder/made more boost than on the dyno.

Well it's time to retire the ECSB chassis I took to DPC and started my performance journey with. At this point it's gotten a little more northern weight reduction (rust) in key areas of the chassis that I think are going to pose issues.

I have now picked up a 2005 regular cab long box rolling chassis to swap 100% of my parts into. I'm also going to be putting my entire LT interior (obviously without back seat) into it making a regular cab chevy with bose/console/steering wheel controls/dual zone climate etc. Since the wife wanted to build an older truck to cruise/take trips in I figured this could be a nice holdover until that happens. Plus it stops me from buying a C5 vette so she's happy haha.



Once I get the roller I'll start a build thread. I've got no space for it now so I won't be picking it up for a few weeks.

I don’t know man. A C5Z has been looking REAL appetizing lately....

But happy to see you committed to the lighter chassis

Dude right? C5's (hell, doesn't even need to be a Z) are always appealing, but I'm not giving up that easy. My POS already, I believe, was fast enough at 126.85mph in the 1/4mi to easily make it onto each list (1/4mi and 1/8mi) and I'll be damned if the reg cab doesn't make it onto each list.

Well, since the new chassis is an 05 LLY I figure I'll keep going in this thread.


As mentioned earlier in this thread, a good friend of mine and myself are in process of fabricating triples for my truck. I was initially going to run an SDP billet LBZ y-bridge and fabricate the snout piece for it. I have decided to give the Wagler street cast intake a shot and see what gains/impacts there are. Based on fluid dynamics/airflow, the Wagler should distribute the air charge much better as well as keeping a larger high-pressure volume of air ready to enter the cyclinders.

The wagler cast intake performs tremendously. It even holds it own against the big runner type stuff when street use and hood clearance are not issues.

That's really good to hear. I figure it has to be better than an aftermarket LBZ bridge setup while still maintaining clearance and valley turbo placement.
