Tonight was the first chance to get to run my truck with the new injectors and studs. I ended up running a 7.7 at 95 MPH in the 1/8.

What was really funny was that i put out so much smoke the guy i was racing ( and older trans am) couldnt see when the light went green and had to wait till the smoke cleared a little, by that time i was halfway down the track...LOL
He ended up with a over 2 second reaction time. The staging guys actually came up to me on the return lane a were laughing and everyone in the crowd cheered me on as i went past them. The guy in the trans was stopped too and they asked him what happened,(on microphone) he said (jokingly) "He cheated, I couldnt see anything!" LOL

I got some video of it and ill post it later so check back, but for now i got to hit the sack, im waking up bright and early to get to the diesel shootout in the morning!

HA! Hey,if it's not illegal why not? I never though about all that smoke hiding the tree. How did you see your side?

Good job on the ET. I never thought of diesels as race vehicles till I saw a PSD rip off a 13 sec 1/4 a few years back.I was shocked.

Now that Audi is kicking butt with one people are changing their thoughts on the trusty oil burner!
