I've only had my 06FX4 to the track once. But this year will be quite often.
So far my best on that day was a 15.58 @ 86.7mph (9.99 @ 70mph 1/8th)
I've got three mods to do this winter (two already done) which will put me into a high 14. All I care is to run repeatable 14.8s afterall this is my daily driver.

Oh.. somewhere around the 14 second mark.. We only have an 1/8th locally and I usually run low 9's with a .100 R/T ( average ) on a 5 speed manual.

I intend to run sub 8's in early spring.

I ran a 16.01 at 83 (1/4) when my truck was lowered on 20's. If I was on slicks and on my 93 tune I feel I could easily run 15.7-8

The day I ran the truck my times were all in the low 16's. Except for my first run, it was 16.7 or something. It was also my first time to run at a track.

I have a track story. One night I took the Saturn SL2 there. As I was just hanging out by the car some guy walking by said

"If I new Saturns were gonna be here I would have brought my bicycle"

I got a best of 14.79 with that Saturn. Never stopped the comments though. It was pretty entertaining.

Ran a 14.9sec 1/4 at 93mph in my stock Tundra. Was alot of fun, Im not much of a go fast guy but I wanted to run it at least once. The coolest part was watching the Snowmobile guys run the track. They were putting down solid 9's on their sleds.

thats funny there was some saturn there and some dodge broke down the run before but i think the guy was high s he started to do a burnout but he couldnt go no where cuz the track wasnt clear but he kept doing it in the middle of the wet box to so it was pointless i know i was gonna runa slow time but i had a good time and plus i want to see what it does before and after turbo
