This was at the TS Outlaw Diesel Event in Bowling Green, KY this past weekend. Unfortunately the crank position sensor crapped out on me in the staging lanes during eliminations (a common problem with Powerstrokes so I had a spare) and we didn't get the other one installed in time to do it during the actual diesel event. So we stuck around 'til about 6pm when the Saturday Fun Runs for the track started. I was racing a V8 S10 with slicks. He must've been pretty irritated 'cause he started doing fishtails and stuff on the return road and did a "ricer fly-by" when I parked it. :D

Make sure you listen to David's audio at the end of the vid; he'd had a few pink drinks by then, lol.

Weight without the winch and tailgate is 8225lbs.  They were both still on for this run so I'm assuming it was at about 8400lbs which is just under 800rwhp by the hp calculator.

Lots and LOTS of thanx to David and the rest of the DI Performance crew for getting it together in time and to the event!!!

Thanx buddy.  We're going to shoot for the 11's this weekend.  Still got 2 or 3 jet sizes to go on the nitrous system.   ;)

Do people stare at you in disbelief when you run down their Corvette in a 4 ton truck?
