Quarter Mile Time

What's the best thing to do to get faster on the drag strip? Or what's the best way to be faster out the hole?

Let's see some Lethal 1/4 or 1/8 times! All I've seen are a lot of dyno queens and 12 second cars!

I couldn't agree more Shawn and Nick will work with you to understand your goals and then meet them with only one problem.. After yo meet 1 you have another and so on. I went there and wanted to run 12.0 and did, then low 11,s and did, then break into 10's
@ 557 rwhp and did. Now mid to low 10's and we will soon see If you want 9's I believe they can do that too.. You just need a bigger check book than I have LOL... Bottom line they will treat you right, great service and not try and convince you that you need something you dont'. 1st thing I would do to go faster is give em a call!

I test drove one of those as well.... my final decision was between the Dodge Laramie Limited and the Ford King Ranch.... It was a tough decision... Ford gave me a way better trade in value on my dodge, and actually beat the dodge dealer on price point....

Both were really nice trucks with great amenities....

Another problem was Aisin trans wasn't available in any of the trucks in Texas at the time other than the C/C models........

Yeah no aisin, no deal. Mine was before Aisin, so it was just under the knife for a billet makeover. I like the ford truck, but don care much for the powerstroke, they just can't hold as much power.
