Default YEEHAW.. 1/8th mile drags

well, yesterday I went to my first drag event in 10 years, and the first time in my truck.. I had an absolute blast.. it was a small town thing, but about 600 people showed up which was really good.. I only got about 5 runs in, but that was fine by me.. truck ran good, there'll be a few tweaks for next year of course.. best time was 10.055.. I was SOOO close to breaking into the 9's, MPH was at 75mph for pretty much each pass except the last one where I smoked the clutch through the last 2 gears.. Guys at the water box were asleep and didn't water nearly enough, so I wanted to roast the tires off for the last pass but got traction instead.. First 2 passes I launched in 2wd, but roasted the tires in 2nd and turned them in 3rd, so after that I did 4x4 launches and it helped a lot. I should have had the smoke screw turned in a little more, it bogged a little at the 10' mark until the turbo lit up, but through the gears it stayed on.

anyhow, enough babble.. here's the vid

4th pass.. poor chevy gasser slept at the wheel and it all went downhill from there
So tell me how this auto-embed works?

And I was so close to getting this old muscle car.. I ran a 10.24, he ran a 10.12.. I had a 2wd launch which would have made that difference (see attached pic)

I really have a hard time believing it.. but apparently a girl took a picture at just the perfect time during the launch and at least one of the front tires came off the ground.. I know my physics, and I gotta think it's an optical illusion.. I'll get the picture tomorrow supposedly.. time will tell

Now if I can get it to do a 1/4 mile in that time I'll be stylin'... Somehow I doubt a 10 second truck is going to be a very good work truck though
