how do i kill in a 6.0?????????

I have an 04 6.0.I am new so from reading forums if you want to race someone from a dead stop, first you put the truck in 4X4 high then build boost by powerbreaking. Is this correct??????? if you put it in 4x4 high do you just leave it until the race is over??????????

not exactly.. if you want to minimize the risk of breakage here is what you do ..

put in 4HI, and then roll the vehicle forward a foot or two to let all the gears engage in the hubs/transfer case (keeps breakage down)

then hold the brake down firmly. FIRMLY !

apply throttle to build boost/rpms , you will learn which combo works best.

let off brake and floor it !! after you've gone a couple hundred feet switch it back into
2WD to take drag off the drivetrain and keep binding to a minimum. it is not good to drive on hard pavement in 4WD due to binding issues and tire wear etc will slow you down.

I thought the 4wd wouldn't switch out to 2wd until after the load was let off???

I believe you are correct about this statement. From my experience with several other 4x4 drivetrains this is how they work. I have actually found on my truck that if im cruising down the road in 4x4, and shift back into 2wheel it will not disengage till I let off the gas...thus unloading the drivetrain. This is an arguement I have had several times with guys regarding 4x4 launchs and switching into 2wheel once your up to speed.

yes to an extent you guys are correct, but remember that once you get up and going you can switch to 2wd. now if there is any difference in wheel speed, the front wheels with either disengage, or stay locked until you let off. sometimes an upshift is enough to let it disengage, but either way, it keeps you from forgetting to do it later..

In my personal experience i have found that my truck goes into 2wd very quickly after switching back during a run.

ahh, gotcha Titan -- so it basically allows it to switch out of 4Hi at the earliest possible moment...

... instead of completing the run then trying to drive around with 4Hi on and possibly screwing something up. That makes sense

Yes Brant I did and I was told that it should not unlock until the load is off of it but I don't have a 4WD so I could be wrong.
