    Thanks, I got a good laugh :driver:

    Guess there were a few pointers for those that haven’t had to work until 11:30 Friday night to get up at 4am to make it to the track at 7:30am
    Just to get rained out.

    I should have titled the article a "primer" for first time drag racers. Still, there were a few pointers for those of us who are veterans of the track.

    In a recent post from SRT-TOM (Drag racing tips with street tires) it mentioned pulling a fuse to reset your computer ("....... or you can pull a fuse. The fuse number depends on the model year of your car. Wait 15-30 seconds before putting fuse back in. That amount of time will give the computer time to reset itself to factory new specs.") Where do I find out which fuse to pull and does it work on 5.7 R/Ts as well? How often should this be done to maintain the peak performance?

    i know on mine it is the #2 fuse , and i pull mine about twice a year......you will have to look at your owners manual to see which one powers the PCM , it depends on the model now since they have changed them up a little since 2015
