Why ask just race. Racing is not about winning all the time.

Are you all racing from a dig or what? If you race a full 1/4 and he has a good EFI tune.......the bowtie will probably be the first to the line. His trans will limit him and his front end will limit his lauch if you all race from a stop. Have fun with the race and LAUNCH HARD!!!!!!

yep, depending on how the race is set up (track, street, dead stop, etc) you are gonna have to give it everything you've got, i hate to say it but in the 1/4 mi he will probably win, that is if he can get off the line without breaking a cv joint

What tune are you running?

ive never ran erics extreme tune, but with cales when i stand on the skinny pedal in 2wd from a dead stop, i could roast my 35's all day...lock your hubs and put it in 4wd if you want a good launch, unless you guys are running at the track then i would race him in 2 and 4

see if his transmission is built... if not he will prolly limp it at the 1000ft. also check for tie rod sleeves. If he doesnt have any of this his truck wont have the potential it will racing on the street till 90 or so

Your hubs will be fine just make sure you don't turn ..... as everyone else says launch the $hit out of your truck, you should have in the 1/8 but 1/4 its going to be close cuz he will be comin'

I'm sorry man, I hate to say it, but a race tuned 6.0 by eric is fast.
But a efi tuned dmax is faster IF he does have his tranny upgraded. I haven't beatin one yet, or a ppe tuned dmax. It all depends on the tune and what he's got just like every other race.
But just because you think his truck is faster..so what. Race him anyways, he still has to drive it right. Can't win em all brother.
