Little gem I dropped on the chevy kids today maybe it can help the confused souls just in case you guys forgot about the powah of the stinky stupid slow ass 12v's
I goat a few questions about this here 'Duramax Domination' thing....perhaps yew guys can enlighten a stupid ******* inbred hillbilly cousin lover such as myself.
1. What is the unit of measurement that we should use to determine domination?
2.After we determine said unit, what percentage aboe a simple majority (51%) do we consider "domination" ???
For arguments sake, lets use the 2007 DHRA Pro-Street and QD for the racing side, and all 4 DHRA pulling classes for sledpulling. On the East coast, the top 4 PS trucks are all dodges...stinky old 12v's at that. The East QD top 4 are all Dodges, 3 of those being 12 valvers. On the west coast, PS has 2 dmaxes. and the Champ still has yet to get to within .45 of the index. The West QD champ is a 7.3. (Mad ass props to my Boy Dille-HAY!)
On the pulling side, the WS class was dominated by Duramaxes (Kinda like Pro street and QD on the east coast) But sadly this was not the case for the other 3 classes (what was that rumor about a Modified class Duramax?) So out of the 8 classes I have listed, the Duramax Dominated Work Stock (entry level sled-pulling) and PS on the Left coast. (the chamipon of said class only running within .45 of the index) Lets see here :
8 possible classes to "dominate"
Perhaps because the CumminGs motor has been around for 700 years, we will only give them 1/2 credit for each class "Dominated" Lets re-tally our score:
Perhaps the fact that the Cummings has been around for 700 years and there has been more time to perfect it should eliminate it from competition? Lets re-score once again....
Dodge-5(score doesn't count to make it "fair") -0
Duramax. Dominaton. (over Ford and dominating the west coast)
All Hail (golfball sized) Duramax Domination
