San Antonio Raceway (1/4 mile drag) closed down for a few months.  A guy that runs a dirt bike track a couple towns over bought SAR and reopened it.  Mustang wasn't ready, so I took the tow rig the day the track reopened.  It was nuts how many people showed up. 

Completely stock 2013 F150 EcoBoost 4x4 with 3.55s.  Tried brake boosting it, but couldn't rev it past 2500 without spinning.  Launched it in 4x4, but it was a couple tenths slower for some reason.  Best was 14.8 @ 93.  Red lighted by .0007 on one pass.   


So far I love this truck.  20.5 MPG is the best I've gotten going to and from work.  That drive is some city some highway with a dozen or so stops along the way.  I really have to stay out of the gas to get that MPG.  Usually it's mid 18s because it's a fun truck to drive.

The 4x4 (with locking rear diff) handles the loose sandy soil out here really well. 

It also tows a car/tractor on a trailer with ease.   Ford Smilie 2

Also saw Texas Mini Farm Truck at the track.

Not bad. I like mine a lot. Gas mileage isnt too bad in the shitty CA traffic. 18+ in constant stop and go to and from work. Open road on long trips, 22+.
It runs good and is surprisingly quick for what it is.

If we go by claimed power and torque... It has more than my V-10 did, so I would believe it.

That's pretty incredible for a stock truck.  You guys are significantly better on gas than my 6.2L Denali XL and my '08 Duramax 2wd crew cab short bed as well. That Ecoboost F150 is one nice truck.  The only down side I can see is the price.  The Limited version is over $50k.

Nice!  My Denali will run on mid grade but is suppose to use premium.  I'm going to do the first Eco Boost to Yukon conversion! LOL

That's a good deal.  I guess I haven't paid attention to just how much these new trucks cost.

Before I bought my truck an old man test driving it at the dealership backed it into a pole.  They fixed it.  I haggled a bit and got it for $29.2k.  XLT, tow package, 4X4, off road package, locking rear diff.  Sticker was $41k IIRC.  Cheesy
