Yeah, yeah, yeah... He tree'd me.

Both of us had a terrible first Reaction Time since it was the first pass of the day (he had a .342 vs my .625). The next pass we both did much better (he had a .067 and I had a .064).

Sorry, I stopped the video at the point delibertly. More to show what a good treeing can do, what the rest of the video shows is him coming around me at the big end.

Indeed I did tree you on that one. Shows what 0.3 can do for you at mid track. However, the V8 did show it self and come around me.

The second run wasn't even close as we both caught good lights. Notice I didn't show that video......

Mine started to do that last year at the track. When it was doing a one wheel burnout,it was making a noise.
Last winter, we installed a JRE posi mod. Pull both wheels no problem.
Some also upgrade the diff to a Eaton truetrac unit that replaces the factory unit. Truetrac works verynice aswell.
