    First track I ever raced at back in 1983. Broke two cars that night! How is the track doing after the BIG storm? C.M.S.Racing

    I think with enough money, you might think about it a little more. I hope!

    I’m the Lightning you raced in the 2nd race. My truck was stock but you still tore me a new one. Look forward to seeing you back here in Gulfport soon!!

    What’s up! 😀 Unfortunately that won’t happen again- sold the truck. It now resides with its new owner in Maryland. Next truck you see me racing in Gulfport will be either my ’68 Ford Ranger with a 6.0 Powerstroke, or the tube chassis ’86 Toyota with the 7.3 I’ve been working on. 😀 How’s your truck running now?

    Been a best of 12.6 @ 108 now… Adding a few more toys as we speak, should do a high 11 by Christmas. Why did ya sell it? That truck is a legend in these parts. There are 2 dodges that run over here now that have a single tip in the back pointed up and one ran a 13.1 this past week.

    Look on my vids… Truck did a 12.6 @ 108 last December. Still not the 12.1 you did but i am only a pulley and dyno tune right now. New toys going on as we speak, should go high 11’s by this Christmas. Why did ya sell?

    Yeah, he’s on a diesel forum I’m on. Actually messaged back and forth a couple of times about Gulfport.

    Getting the money to finish a couple of other diesel projects I have going. 😀

    I’m one of the dodges running over there..not quite that fast but its fast enough for me. I’m the blue 06. I’ve talked to Danny a couple times. Best i can get is a 13.5 @ 100

    What’s up buddy! I might be out there sooner than I thought. There’s a 6.0 that’s been for sale over here for some time now. ’04 F250 4×4 extra-cab xlt with around 80,000 miles and they’re asking $10,700. Ford report came back pretty clean on it. I’ve been trying to hold out but don’t think I can anymore, lol. Let me know next time you’re going. I wanna come watch.

    I might run during cruisin the coast..I need 2 stock size tires and ill run it. The 35s and 20s are kinda hurtin me

  19. imelmo September 15, 2008 at 12:40 pm #

    Yeah, rotating weight is a pain. I went ahead and bought that ’04. Picking it up today. Should have at least a programmer and the requisite supporting mods on it by then. Might be able to run mine out there by then too.

    sweet truck…

    great run,reation time must have been 0.00,at 3.19 pause and then quickly double click the play button,on the far right hand side you can see the christmas tree changing down the lights,you can see the truck move and the light still hasn’t changed…….well done 🙂

    Not sure if you drag race or not so I may be telling you something you already know, but you wanna launch on the last yellow light, not wait ’til the green. When you stage there’s another light just ahead (I forget how far) that actually starts the timer when you break the beams on it.

    hey nice truck man. what turbo are you running on your truck? or does it have twins?

  24. imelmo October 6, 2009 at 5:07 pm #

    I no longer own the truck, sold it about a year and a half ago. Back then it just had a single drop-in Garrett 38r turbo.

  25. mk37mgteboy October 6, 2009 at 8:59 pm #

    oh ok. cool. I have been trying to decide whether to put on the Garrett turbo or the Hypermax H-2. Thank you
