Well, I went to a 4th of july festival this local small town holds every year where they have mud drags. I thought i would go over and just watch. When i get there I see a buddy of mine whos entered the race in the 44 street class. I thought it would pretty much be professional 1500 horse machines running so I never even thought about entering until I talk to my friend. So I go get weighed in and qualify for the 44 street class. Now I am running a 502 Ram Jet, 350(no stahl)/205 40" Boggers w/ 4.56 gears. I am air locked up front but never used this day. I run the pit in 4 lo. When i hit 3rd gear she just bogs down like I am in a 4' pit of clay. Now mind you, this pit is set up for speed, as it is a timed mud drag, so the pit is only 2-3' deep at the most in spots. Where do u think my truck is ailing. I've been told i should have went 5.13's but with the torque I am pushing I really didnt think I needed it. I finished 4th out of 7 trucks. I am seriously considering having it dynoed somewhere to see the actual rwhp I am running. I want to make this truck competitive in these types of events but still street worthy, what do u guys think?
