So we won 1st place at the TS outlaw race. We were the least broken in our field. LOL Alomost hit the wall when we blew out a freeze plug on our very first test runs Wed. night. Decided right then and there screw the cooling system, its not needed on a 1/4 mile race truck. So after the TS race I realized she needs a diet, so we cut out the entire cooling system, radiator, hoses, bottles, etc. ALso removed the right passenger seat, belts and mounts, all the carpet, and removed one battery, and one nitrous bottle and moved the other bottle next to the battery.

It can't make near the power of the 6.0. They are great engines, but limited to pretty low power without, MAJOR, and I mean MAJOR $$$$$

Beautiful truck, but is it safe to say, without a cooling system, you won't be driving it around town?

One more thing (or did I miss it?): show us a timeslip!

Now you got me looking for a Ranger to wrench on for the quarter (or even eighth)!

Sorry Guys, been gone for a while. Divorce! No not cause the Ranger, because she had a boyfriend.

Anyway, I put the truck aside for a few months. Got it out yesterday for the first time since Pinks in October. I have a sagging right front coil spring, a blown Head Gasket, and still have to put my sway bar on the rear. Just thought I'd stop back by and say hello. Timeslip, well I will get you some but so far its not all that impressive since we have had so few runs on it......5 total, and all sorts of suspension problems due to torque. I think I have a few vids though.
Here is one where it wouldn't shift out of first.
Little burnout.
