ran my 99 250 today

this thing is HARD to drive...
launched around 2k in 1st... spun...
shift into 2nd... spun...
3rd... 3k rpm hits almost immediately
then its 4th and 5th
i think i was in each gear for a good 2 or 3 seconds... max...

and all that vigirious shifting and i got a 16.8 and 86mph

exciting...


any tips? should i just skip gears? or should it just stick to towing my cars...

its a 99.5, 6spd, dp tow tune, sb ofe, regcab, long bed, lsd, 2wd

I dragged my 6 speed it was a joke cant use 1st gear at all.. take off in second I covered my white box sides with rubber ... I tried different launch rpms and nothing really seemed to work.. I did install a true trac in the rear diff so I may try it this summer again now that I have power at both rear tires rather then just 1...
