First time at the track last night...

So I headed out to the track last night to see what the truck would run (08 F350, spartan275 v3/v2, DPF delete, AFE)

First run, great launch but then the truck lost all power at about the 330 mark. Tried to get it going again and it wouldn't get going again until I slowed down at the end of the track. I was using 275 V3/4x4/Tow Haul off

2nd run, loaded 275v2, turned Tow Haul on and ran a 13.9
3rd run, 13.7 with lots of front wheel hop
4th run, 13.6, but I had the mirriors out

Is this the times I should be seeing?

Is Tow Haul slowing me down at the end of the track by not letting me lock the converter in O/D?

And, what happened the first run? Tranny go into limp mode?

Thanks

the only reason i ran it was because i thought it would make the tranny shift harder which in turn would stop the tranny from slipping and throwing it into limp mode...

Yeah good times i would say.

When you post track times 60' foot times will tell us alot and things like tires,tire pressures, altitude things like that help alot, but it sounds like you got the hang of it, and i think there is a 13.5 13.4 left in your truck with a good good launch

What were your 60' times anywho?

1.9s, with a bit of front end wheel hop. Im sure if I could clear that up and had my mirrors in I would of seen a 13.5.

I guess when I think about it the stuff that I have on the truck could add a cpl lbs. The liner and cover must be around 150-200lbs, knock that off and thats around 2/100ths...

You guys think tow haul mode would of slowed it down a bit? Also V2 is stonger than V3 right?
