I just joined the forum was wondering if yall have any people that drag race?
Welcome to the club!
Hi Techman, welcome to the GM Truck Club. I used to in NHRA Division 6. First with the '56 in my photo, & then ran a drag bike for a few years after that. How quick is your truck?
Welcome to the G M T C !
I love watching the NHRA stuff on ESPN.
Never have driven down the quarter mile, but would like to next season.
My '76 Impala has a new 434 stroker and 700R4 pushing 500hp back to the 3.73 gears.
(check out my album)
It is great on the street, but would like to see how the boat would do in the quarter.
Keep us posted on your progress.
Were is Lufkin, TX near? My daughter is over in Presidio.
My buddies and myself used to go to a little track in Central Ga, during the Friday night "run what ya brung nights" and run our street cars, and talk with the guys who were competing etc.. And it was always a good time to be around like minded people and 90% of them were just fun loving and outgoing! kinda miss that but now im back in truck land and love that just as much HA... Also was part of my buddies crew he won 2 different import weekends at the same track, with his 2003 Lancer EVO that wasnt quite scarry enough for him HAHA!

The truck runs 11.60's in the Quarter mile @ about 118 mph. The truck weights 2669 with me sitting in it. Hopefully in about 2 or 3 yrs it will be lighter than that looking at an all fiberglass body.
Did you mean 3669 lbs? If not a typo then how did you get it so light? Do you already have some fb gl pieces on it? Didn't this truck weigh around 3500/3600 originally?
