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.
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.....
