Don't any manual strokers hit the track?

I check in here and snoop around looking to see if I can find any handshakers gettin' after it at the track, but y'all are either hard to find or borderline non-existent.
Where ya at?

Yeah, not too many manuals on the 1/4 mile. They just aren't as fast as the automatics with a boosted launch. You see them at the sled pulls, but very few on the asphalt.

I've thought about it, but the Ford ZF6 just isn't a fast shifting trans. Its as strong as all get out but slow. Doesn't bother me thought didn't buy the truck for the strip.

Neither did I, but I didn't let that stop me

Try the 3pedal shuffle some time. I used to dump the clutch, but though it launches HARD it's a good way to see exactly how strong your transmission is........or isn't

Heel on the brake toe on the accelerator, give it some throttle, slowly let up on the clutch pedal, watch the boost gauge, hits 10-15 psi come up off both the clutch and brake while laying into the throttle, as long as you have a decent clutch it'll shoot outta the hole pretty dang well.

I start in second. It works real good. If a guy didn't have a dual or triple disc clutch, he'd want to be real careful not to burn up his single. Just don't want to heat them up too much. I've tried 3rd but didn't have enough clutch to hold it. First in the NV5600 (6 speed) is basically a granny gear. I shift out of 2nd before the '60 mark.

Some of you guys should give it a shot! Unless you have a drag car or something then of course it would be pointless. First run down the track ever for me I lined up against a brand new say 09' GT mustang........blew his doors off, I was hooked!

Speaking of hooking I've yet to give the sled a shot. Doesn't seem like it will be as fun waiting all day to hook once when compared to making 10 runs at the track. I still want to try it though.

I've really only seen like 2 guys posting about racing their manual Fords! You go over to Cummins Forum and there is a thread with quite a few manuals posting their times.
