Looks like it will be a good time though, definitely need some strong Fords to give them Dodge boys a run for their money, gonna be tough to beat a 12v on the pulling track though :doh:

Sounds like fun, I would love to hook up one of these days, just trying to make sure the driveline will hold together and that I can be ready to fix whatever might break. My u-joints in the rear are already going out, sled certainly wouldnt help that.

There is a pull coming up soon in Exiter, RI too. Its only the stone sled though and not a weight transfer sled
