New from Nebraska

Post by DSLStuff on March 17th 2010, 9:11 am

I was linked to this from the mopar forum, which is fine because I was only on there for the rustoleum paint forum.

I have ZERO training in body or paint. I don't even really like doing it. I do like saving money by doing things myself. So if you see dents in the vehicles I paint it is supposed to be there....lol!

My only project to date was my 94 dodge cummins drag/fun truck. My brother and I did this paint job in our friends 2 car garage with no previous experience.

Glad you joined DSLStuff

What times did you run?

I never did any body work either but getting ready to learn, did you roll or spray your truck?

Roll on.

We broke a lot of parts last year and didn't get any good times. That picture was taken during the burnout before we blew our first head gasket.
The year prior, 2008, we ran 12.39 @ 109mph. The truck weighs over 5000lbs.

Pretty good times for a truck that heavy, how many pounds of boost?

I don't know exactly. On the dyno we buried the 60lb boost gauge. So something north of 60lbs!
New turbo for this year so we will see what happens?

Hey DSL

Just watched your video and that thing hooked great! What 60 ft' times do you pull, 1.5-1.6?

Anyway, you still drive it on the street right?

I wish! The video when we blew the head gasket was the best the truck had ever hooked. I don't remember what the 60ft was. I don't think we have ever been below 1.9 yet. The video of the truck when it had the white box was before we redesigned the traction bars. The design was originally binding the suspension. This year we are trying another big single. If it doesn't work the truck will definitely get twin turbos. The reason for our decent times is our second 1/8th. Our back half is usually pretty good since the big single makes good power on the top end.

The truck is still driven on the street some. The hood stack isn't legal though.
