I don't think it's be posted/asked here before, but what are details & specs on your Super Duty? I've seen a burnout video long ago, and nothing else.

Awesome trailer, work bench and cabinets look great as well!

Put the pinion brake on a hand brake now. Should make it much easier, and safer. If Strange will overnight my shocks, I will be at the track Friday night in Baytown, TX

Not very impressive so far. 1.84 was the best, but we have to get the pads worn in on the pinion brake. We are only leaving at about 25 PSI, where we should be about 45. When we took the pads off, a section about the size of a dime was all that was worn on both pads. Gotta drag it around a few times to get the brake pads worn in so we can grip. the Sway bar will bring the 60's way down also. Lots of bugs to work out still.
