I went to the local race track last night with a buddy who regularly races his 1990 Mustang GT. I've never been to a drag strip so I wanted to see what it was like along with all the other street cars and bikes. Needless to say, they convinced me to run my 05 Tundra on the 1/8 mile for a time trial and for the heck of it. A lot of guys were offering advice on how I should do a burnout first and other starting tactics. However, I just went for putting the pedal in the floor method since it's all I knew I could do.
Needless to say, my Tundra ran the 1/8 mile in as low as 10.24 sec (the highest time was 10.34). I know nothing about what a good time is but some of the track regulars said it was a good time for a naturally aspirated 4 door truck. I never ran side by side with another comparable truck, but I did see other comparable trucks run at around 10.9 - 11.2.
I guess some of the guys never have seen a Tundra run or maybe never seen one run well. I'll probably go back again some other time to give it another run.
