Re: Launch

I run 38 inch tires. Can I launch at 2000 rpm or should I be launching at 1600 because of my tires?

Re: Launch

Do you have traction bars, or any other measure to keep your driveline in place under said launch?

If not, I'd caution against it b/c of breaking sh!t...

Re: Launch

I am looking at traction bars. i am comparing them all against one another but they soome to be overpriced for what they include. What can I say I dont like to overpay for stuff. My rear lift is currently 5 inch lift leaf springs and stock f350 blocks with the overload that goes threw the ubolts that make it difficult to spit a block out. I am looking at tractions bars and will prolly end up wit jesses unless someone can fine me ones that are more bang for the buck.

I actually didnt get a good 2k launch as i said in the video.

I used to beat that cummins most of the time i run 8.80s and he runs 8.80s before 90hp injectors. I think he ran a 8.7 something that time.

Re: Launch

This is why you launch in 4H at about 2K:

Almost nothing 2wd can keep up.

Not that it was much of a contest.
