Hot Digidy Dawg ....

Tickled pink. About 100 miles was on 30psi. Beats my best mpg on the RAM by 20 MPG. Upper Grill block today.

Nice work!

Now the RAM
I drove the RAM w/ trailer in tow to our USAC XC MTB event site yesterday ... you can just hear the coins hitting the bottom of the bucket.

I plan about 8-12 out of town trips this year for state, regional and national events (80-450 miles). Probably 3000-3500 miles total. Guess I need to do some aero work on the truck and box trailer. The upper grill block will be a piece of cake. I'm not so sure about getting the drag down on the 6x12 box trailer. Maybe some airtabs would help clean 'er up a bit.

Pictures to follow.

What was the mileage like on the truck?

You should start a new thread about cleaning up the aero of your Ram + trailer combo. This might be one case where I'd suggest the addition of a square bed cap on the truck, as a starting point...

16.25mpg with passengers (25%/75%) City/Highway
11.5-12.0mpg towing the box trailer @ 65mph
13-14mpg towing the 5200lb. open racecar trailer @ 65mph

The wind load on the 6x12 is killing me. My first thought was nice bed cap ...since I've wanted one for some time.

I'll draft a new thread.

It was worth the Tow $$s today. My first shot at a Regional Race and I made the podium, albeit the second spot. The first guy "dropped me like a bad habit."

I'm learning and adapting
The ScanGuage continues to educate me daily. After last weeks tank, I added a few baffles to reduce the amout of outside air to intake air, thereby raising the IATs accross the board about 10-15degrees on average.

Everything else, including continued monitoring of right foot remained consistent. Ambient air was a bit warmer this week, up around 8-10degrees during driving times, but RH was 20-50% down appreciably from previous cold damp weeks.

41.26 mpg. Up almost 2 mpg from two weeks ago. Getting closer to a 40 mpg 90 day average!

I doubt it can't be all IAT mods, but I'm not complaining.

Nice job! It's always nice to break a level like that.
