1/4 mile times for an F350....

F350 1/4 mile times....

My regular race truck wasn’t ready in time for the NMRA’s season opener in Bradenton, FL this past weekend so I decided to take my F350 tow rig instead so I could still get some points for the season. I wasn’t sure what to expect because I’ve never raced the truck before so everything was a shot in the dark.

As I rolled around the water box the person on PA system said the normal stuff and then made a comment like “I wonder if the truck’s going to fit between the staging tree and the wall”… I just laughed. My first pass was a 14.98 at 101 with a 2.76 60’ but she spun pretty good off the line. The PA was shocked I just took a 8,600 truck through the traps at 100+ mph and ran under 15 seconds. I was pretty happy with the run but knew there was more in her.

On my next pass I launched off ideal with no spinning and clicked off a 14.54 @ 101 with a 2.46 ’60. I followed that with a 13.98 @ 101 mph with about the same 60’. For the 4th pass I got on the convertor a little so it wouldn’t flash from a dead stop and this time she ran a 13.63 @ 102 with a 2.24 60' and a .049 reaction time. The dude on the PA was going nuts because he couldn’t believe a truck this size just went mid 13’s @ almost 102 mph. Needless to say I was a happy camper and very surprise it went that fast. I didn’t win the race but she still ran a 13.93 @ 101 on the last pass so I was pleased.

These truck don’t move very fast off the line but with a little work on the the 5/10ths pro tree I crack off an .049, .090 and a .076 reaction time while keeping the times in the 13’s.

Here’s the info from the quickest time and a little detail on the truck and track

60’……….. 2.243
330’……… 5.834
1/8……….. 8.832

Here's a picture of the truck as I stepped on the throttle... (poor camera guy, he had no idea what he was getting into standing behind me ).
