So i pull up to a backup car show spot (main show broke up) and hear some kid say "so this is the slow truck" and start laughing... I park and get out start talking to the guy. Hes got a white supercharged silverado and some of his friends told him about my truck. He said just ran it at the track n got a 14.00 at 100mph. He wanted to race me. I of course agreed and wanted to do a dig race. (i knew he'd win at the end of the 1/4 cuz well uh... i cant go 100mph)
So we talk for a lil, get another guy to follow us an tape it. (Which i will post here as soon as he posts it at the local racing fourm My friend also decided to tag along in his transam just for fun.

Drove for a while and lined up deciding to start off with a 40 roll. Honked it off... We stayed DEAD even till my TQ convertor locked up in 5th. (55-60 ish?) then he pulled about a truck and a half and we stayed pretty much dead even till we stopped racing. (i wanna say i cought up a LITTLE around the end, but well have to wait for the vid to see)
Next we ALMOST COUGHT A LIGHT, but it was only red for a few seconds and none of us got a good launch off so we kinda stopped.
After that we just kept going up the road...green light after green light...then we made a u turn, and got EVERY single green light on the way back. Ive seriously never gotten that many green lights in my life.
Anyways, we line up to do a 20 roll because were getting to close to the spot and its lookin like a dig race wasnt going to happen.
We go, i honk it off, and he immediatly puts like 2 truck lenghts on me, and that stretches out to like 3 or so by the end of the race.
After i looked down and noticed i left my truck in 4WD. so that kinda explains what happened there.

All in all i was pretty happy (as happy as you can loosing) with my truck an it was pretty fun. Dig race woulda been perfect. too bad it never happened.
im pretty sure I should be able to pull a high 13 if i launch right... right?
btw edge was in lvl4, defuel5, tow haul, defuel all shifts and we both had extended cab trucks

I dont think you are going to see 13s with just the edge, JMO.

high 13's with just an Edge is asking a little much...

Im not sure if I buy that guys trap speed. A 14 second quarter mile usually comes out to around 93-96 mph IIRC...

:( No 13s with just edge? (i wasnt 100% thats why i asked) i know someone personally whose run bullydog on a dooly and gotten a 14.1, with that info along with what ive read here i figured my edge'd extended cab 2500 would be able to pull a 13.9 with a good launch.
I saw the time slip by the way so he wasnt bsing

Slips dont lie, thats true. But, when I ran a 14 flat I was going 95 when I crossed the line.

A HOT juice w/ a tranny will get an LB7 in the 13's. My truck does 14.2's w/ a stock tranny, 2wd launches and 35's. And thats w/ the juice only on 4.

An LB7 w/ the Hot Juice runs WAY stronger than a LLY w/ the Juice. (there is no hot for LLY)

Yea..Soo i look at it this way.

I figure if you get 14.2 in 2wd on Lv4, then i dont see why I couldnt pull a 13.9 with a good 4x4 launch (i have tierods+ranchos?) on lvl4. maybe 5 if my tranny doesnt limp (havent limped it yet... *knocks on wood*)

Well keep in mind, mine is the HOT Juice. My level 4 is the same as your level 5.

I agree with Slick, first thing period if you want to play is fix that tranny. It isn't cheap but it's the only way you will every be happy if you plan to race your truck. I get a kick out of reading these kill stories, my favorite one was a young gal in a vette who pulled to my right and was going to pass me on the green light through the intersection. I put it in 4 wheel, turned on the pane and h20/meth and hot juice all the way up and buried her. Smoke wan't black enough to suit me but was till pretty thick. Got a double single digit IQ from her when she finally went around me on the left. Loved it. Still have the propane, h20/meth and aurora turbo for sale. Keeping my big injectors and extreme cp-3 setup till I see now the truck will run with the twins and TTS Extreme. Save your nickles and fix the tranny.:grd:

i live with my parents still and my father helps me mod my truck. Hes somewhat oblivious to what the edge does, i just put it on lvl1 low boost 3 when he drives it. he said he would pay for half of a SC5, but only when i NEED it. he refuses to change a transmission when "we dont have too".

there are 4 vids from that night

Turn up and juice and goat him into limping it a time or two just when it is really starting to haul a$$ and he'll buy the whole thing. :ro)

He thinks the edge is just gauges and a few other things, he doesnt know it adds that much power. :shrug:

u cant really notice, but theres some decent smoke (from an edged lb7) on the failed dig vid
