Re: Play time is over!! its 2wd time

those steel wheels are going to offset the gains you get, Shawn....

not to mention the suspension is not setup to hook up in 2wd

Re: Play time is over!! its 2wd time

I'm guessing you'll drop .2 of a second. Better get some practice before hitting the strip for the first time in 2wd mode. Truck will launch and drive very different. Also,try not to freak out at the top end of the track when the back end of the truck starts to sway side to side. Took me a few runs to relax and not try to correct it when this starts. Running on soft-sidewalled slicks takes some getting used to.

Re: Play time is over!! its 2wd time

Are you still running the 44A in the rear? Do you think it'll hold up?

Good luck at the track Bubba - hope you get way under 13.5 so that bug guard will come off!!
