Drag racing a dually

I took my 2000 F-350 dually crewcab longbox with stick shift to the track last weekend, just for fun.

How much damage am I really doing to it by lighting up the rear tires under hard acceleration? Am I going to drop a driveshaft on the ground or split the transfer case in half? Currently, the truck is totally stock.

Realistically, how stout are these trucks in regards to that kind of abuse?

Are you getting a decent burnout? I am curious as to how you went about it...Dropped clutch in 1st, 2nd, or third...and at what RPM? Or did you do the ole reverse to 1st, or 2nd or 3rd? were you able to keep the tires lit while shifting?

Im pretty sure you should be fine! just want to know how you went about it...

Is this an after fact that you've already laid it down?

I revved the engine oto about 2600rpm a couple times trying to build boost as soon as the tree started to drop, and dumped the clutch in 1st (technically 2nd, not low gear) and the truck just spun off the line. It winged well past redline which I hadn't noticed. Didn't seem to hurt anything, but made me wince. Then just hammered through the gears into 4th at about 3/4 track. I could still hear the turbo whine between gears but have no idea how much boost was happening while shifting. Recorded a max of 16psi didn't want to abuse the clutch, so didn't slip it against the brakes at the starting line.

They chirped, but hooked up quickly. The other two runs were in 4wd. I had the waste gate control line disconnected.

I figured he would have seen a little more than that but then again I never had gauges when I was stock lol... What did it run? Is it a 2wd truck? I know with mine it's impossible to get a good clean launch where it's enough boost to cut a good 60ft without blowing the tires off

Easiest way to do a burn out with a manual in a pik up rev it drop clutch and stomp brakes, not to hard it will bogg out and die tho, but just hit em and hold em if your still going forward get them tighter.
