hey guys, how you guys pulling these?
4low, 2nd gear, if i hit the limiter give it 3rd?
traction bars, and second shock up front to kill the wheel hop, also rear suspension will be blocked
just did my first one last month at local fair for auto 6.0 you want 4low 3rd gear or 4 hi 2nd gear. DO NOT RED LINE hold about 3500 rpms unless you have the mods to handle or a ride home.
I talked to bunch of guys on base who did them all the time....
start in 4 hi 2nd gear (you wanna get to 20-25mph) and did a 10psi boosted launch but dont just drop it. let it roll like half a tire turn and floor it so you get momentum. also dont ever slam on breaks or the sled will rip your truck a new one just let off the pedal if problems occur.
try 4 hi 2nd and 4 low 3rd and see what rpm range is best for your tire/ gear etc... your hitch where the sled connects will most likely need to be under 27inches, and a huge hitch is required. also be a good idea to get some heavy tie straps and tighen your front suspension to reduce any wheel hop. if you feel the front end hopping kill it or your gonna break stuff.
