They’re down right nutty. That’s getting scary fast for what it is.
Or maybe I’m just a wuss.

That's why I said when comparing what they are....

They're both stupidly fast and heavy for the speeds.

Especially once they get it to hook how they won't have to lift like they did on that run.

Their setup in a rail would be flat nasty.... Or so I hear.

We are excited to finally get the truck closer to what our 2018 goals have been.
We are hoping to find another tenth in it, but going from a .47 to a 37 is a big undertaking. We have the power for more, but the ET is all found in the first 330' where power is just a small part of the equation.

We just added a wing with some downforce in preparation for running 1/4mile in Ennis, TX, NHRDA World Finals. We also broke a Heim joint in Florida, which was the reason we were getting hard left turns during the launch. We temporarily fixed it at the track, but are building all new 4 link bars with heavier tube and heim joints. We also found a crack on the bracket where the anti roll bar mounts to the axle, that we rewelded and added a gusset to hopefully prevent it from happening again.

We have been very happy with the Exergy Bosch ECU and Bosch Powerbox setup on the truck. The tuning capabilities are endless, giving us solid control during the burnout, staging and launching. Every measurement that is datalogged via the ECU can be referenced via the CAN bus system to enable/disable anything on the truck that is powered and since the Bosch Powerbox controls every solenoid, shifter, light, pump etc. I can't give enough credit to Phil at Exergy for the amount of time he invested in setting up this system before turning it over to us. It made the whole process seamless, from first start to race day and fine tuning. What i've learned about the Bosch system is that its only as good as the engineer who sets it up. A very powerful system when put in the right hands, and Exergy's team of engineers nailed it with taking the time to label all the measurements in plain English where i don't feel like i have to be Albert Einstein to maneuver through the software and datalogs.
