right or wrong

Hey out there I hear alot of PS guys talk about rolling tires and great performance. My 7.3 will in no way turn a tire on pavement and I wouldnt even consider racing a Honda. This doesnt bother me, Im just wondering if Im missing out on performance and mileage. It pulls my camper great, never shifts down on highway and I get respectable mpg. I have modded my air filter, MBRP 4 inch, and 50 horse chip. Its been given a clean bill of health. Thanks for reading

You guys must be doing something wrong. Even when my truck was stock it would break loose with a brake torque burn out.

But I don't do it, why because tires cost to dang much to keep replacing. When I was younger and doing stupid things with my 86 t-bird. I learned that lesson.

I've always been able to spin my 7.3s tires with a power break or going around a turn stomping on it. I even got them to spin with around 850 pounds in the back.

PM ME FOR VINYL DECALS!

I could spin my 35s with just intake and exaust while power braking..now with my custom tunes its no problem to spin them whenever I want...burnouts are very hard on the trucks ND TIRES ARE WAY TO EXPENSIVE FOR ME TO BE FRYIN THEM
