I was just playin this morning and decided to share with ya'll. The first one is no boost from a dead stop. The second one is from 100km/h and the last one sucks cuz I can't hold the camera worth a sh*t lol. Enjoy:thumbsup

The light looks to be for the TPMS (tire pressure monitoring system) My light stayed on all the time because the aftermarket wheels and tires didn't have the sensors inside them.

I'd hope it goes a little faster:wiggle The wind drag with your lift and tires must really affect the top end. I know my 6.0 accelerated faster then this one over 100mph and I think the main reason is cuz it was lowered and lighter. This one is getting dropped in two weeks and I'll see if it helps cuz as it stands 128mph is were it stops with 3.55. Pahrump said he hit 130 and I was hoping for 140 eventually. Maybe I should try tucking some 38's under my fenders:haha

I gotta get more speed cuz my moms AMG ML63 goes faster then my truck and so does my buddies Challenger:thumbdown

The weight on my truck is 7370 lbs half a tank and without me in it.

Quarter mile times..................... Once I get a set of slicks. I can't launch with any boost or the tires go up in smoke. I did a 20 psi launch yesterday and left a patch the length of a football field(NFL not CFL:haha) With no boost my dash daq said I did a 1/4 in 15.8 and a 0-60 in 5.9(only managed that once otherwise it's in the low 6's). I have no idea how accurate it is.

I will for sure post pics of it lowered. I'm so tired of driving this tall truck:haha:haha:haha

Where in BC are ya? I'm heading to the okanogan this weekend and I'll be heading back there in few weeks once it's lowered.

I had the same issue with my daully... any type of boosted launch would spin the rears like crazy. I think your 0-60 time is pretty close because in the video you launched at approx. 5 sec and hit 60 at approx. 11 sec.

my 6.0 did 132 with 3.73s and 35s, it was still pulling too. im sure it would have done 140 if i had room.

How can you only hit 128? My 4x4 Excursion with an Edge will do a 130...

Nice video. I know what you mean about having to hold the camera and do a launch. Ive only done 95mph cause when i get on it past 70 it shakes. and when i get off it its ok? ive been told its the driveshaft.

I love driving my truck at 100 mph to 110. The revs aren't real high and it's very smooth. I can take my hands off the wheel on a nice road at those speeds and the truck goes strait.
