I know of a few gasser guys that went.

From what I heard there were quite a few broken trucks in the gasser classes.

Heres a post from our thread in the INDP club thread for all you non-members. I also broke the G80 as well as the other parts listed.


OK guys bear with me. Its my turn to pull. I back up to the sled, stop to put it in 4lo, The button light just flashes and it wont go into 4lo. I try for about a minute with no luck so I pull off the track. Lately ive been having trouble with my nsbu switch so i start messing with it. take the plugs loose and plug them back in and BAM! it goes in 4lo. Now keep in mind the full pull mark is 186'. I hook to the sled build some heat in my Danville/Garret charger, let her go and it hardly does anything! It hits third gear at 100' and it finally takes off. Wind up going 185.32'. Turns out I forgot to set my programer for no defuel on shifts so it was defueling till 100'. Ok i talk the officials into letting me do an exhibition hook right before the pulloff before they changed the sled. I set it for no defuel on shifts and went 187.44', full pull. In the process I broke both traction bars and tweaked the rear differential. Got 4th with my first hook but I know I could have had at least third if everything would have cooperated. Sorry for such a long post.

p.s.- Mark, awesome freaking turbo!
