[quote=Agrajag;10688693]Wow, what did you do to lighten it up? I thought these trucks weighed around 3000.[/quo

I have nothing in the bottom of the bed, Lexan for windows, and fiberglass fenders front and back. Also no tailgate and just one race seat. I also cut off the back-half of the frame to add my own frame setup

here is my first day out with this truck ths is an 1/8 mile track.

1952 Ford F1 first day out ran a 7.21 - YouTube

That truck really launches. I'm hoping to pick up a set of slicks this month and hopefully get the truck out to the track again in October
