VID'S ADDED Last Min Question on Pulling

Tonight is the Truck Wars show an it said on the radio it free to get in if you compete. I'm gonna give it a try. I guess its bumper to bumper pull off. I was gonna put Gearheads Unlimited Tow in it an drop it to 4low a give it a shot.

Anything I should know? I've never did something like this an any advise is a big help.

My bottom end is ALL stock. DRW/4x4 with 22.5" rims an tires. My tires suck and are hard compond. How much air should I run?? I think its on the road?

your ticket to get in would be less expensive than when you break a front shaft by using 4low on concrete. not to spoil your fun, but i sure as heck wouldnt subject my truck to that for less than $1000

secondly if you choose to ignore my warning i fully support you to video tape the pull and post on here for the rest of us to watch

Chatham036: thank you for the wise advice

So I pulled n the dually class an that was the toughest class. My first pull/tug was against a built F550. We lined up an it went back an forth a bit an I blew my front end. I was pulling in 4low an I blew the outer shaft. I sat around and felt sorry for myself until the end of the night.

The truck that beat me was undefeated all night an the closest fight was my truck. Anyway, the last race was that 550 and a 450/6.4 built toy. at the end of the race the 550 that beat me won. They checked the truck over an he had been cheating!! (I would have had I thought I could get away with it) he had a bunch of elevator weights an his spare tire was full of weight.

The night was over an we had a grudge pull, 2wheel drive. I had blown' my 4wheel up already.....

4min pull!!! We fought back an forth. In the end they called it a tie,!!!! **** HIM, thanks to you crazy people my truck was/would have been the toughest ***** at the pull

As always Thank You

As long as you don't complain about breaking something then it's cool. If you are into the mantra "pay to play" then we respect that. It's ppl who use daddy's money to fix their !@#$ ups that don't deserve much anything but a scooter to drive.
As long as you had fun

Now before we get all upset I got called 17 (took it in good fun) an then I read Rofl an hehehe. I had to look up the Rofl as although I might still act 17 I'm 43.

The actual pulling was pretty cool. There were maybe 7 DRW trucks in my class. I've never been to something like that an had no idea how to do it correctly. Of course I had to go first in my class but after watching some of the other earlier SRW trucks thought it didn't look that hard.
I lined up against the 550 an pulled him at first then he just held his ground. My 17yr old maturity got the best of me an I got frustrated an pegged the skinny peddle an had all 6 tires smoking an the motor popping off the rev limiter!!!! The front end started to hop an that's when I blew the outer shaft. Again the little kid in me just couldn't calm down to reality an I stayed in.. I guess the sparks got out of control an they made me shut it down.

After 4 1/2min of puling back an forth they asked if I wanted to call it a tie an as I said no right at that time all my warnings on my CTS went off.
Tranny:249
ECT:240
EOT: 243

I put it in neutral an said its a tie.. Announcer said it was the best match of the night. Out of the whole night I think only one other truck broke a front end.

I drove it home. An I have a great video as soon as I learn how to get it off my buddy's iPhone.

To anyone who isn't afraid to play in the deep end of the pool the trick (as I was learning) is to stand on the brakes an let the t-converter do the work. Slow an steady an keep the tire spin down. At one point both our trucks where spinning the tires VERY slowly.

You'll all love the video.....
