ZF6 Drag Racing?
Went to the Carolina Diesel Nationals last Saturday, and I don't think I seen a single straight drive run the track.
I know that technically, an automatic will out run a manual every time, when dealing with these trucks, considering shift time and turbo spoil and such. My question is this.
If you own a ZF6 and have ever drag raced, rather it be on a track, or just wanted to out run your friends, what do you typically do?
What gear do you launch in? Around about what RPM do you launch said gear from? Are you popping the clutch?
Not that I intend to race my truck, just following the G.I. Joe code. The more you know.
