So I got drug...

Dirtydiesel and I hooked up last night on the pad back to back - it was not a pretty sight. I really thought I was gonna take him since I've got the BFG All-Terrains on my 6.0, and his tires are - uh... small; but I guess since he's got the damned 20ft long grey hound bus he out pulled me Weight was a contributing factor as well I'm sure; his Mega Cab prolly outweighs my shortbed extended cab by about 2000lb.

I really don't have any excuses either - the pad had 2" of dirt on it from fourwheers driving all over it, but after he beat me the first time we switched sides and he beat me again. I do know the damned coil-sprung front end hops something serious when the front tires spin though, and I couldn't even touch the go pedal or the whole truck would start hoping. He basically ended up just pulling me backwards with all 4 of my tires locked up - so I looked like a


So as of now, its;
Billygoat: 1
Stroker:0

I guess we'll see what happens at the drag strip.

I hooked up to my buddies 05 cummins in a old school parking lot, his truck is a srw and mine is drw his truck is 4wd and mine is only 2wd he left his truck in 2wd and we pretty munch just ended up having a smoke show. He didn't pull me and I barely pulled him and then it was back to just spinning. Felt pretty good tho knowing that he has a goerand transmission and a smarty jr. And my truck has a stock trans and a chip from PHP. I'm sure if he put it in 4wd he would have drug me but in 2wd he just couldn't do it, he has nitto trail grapplers on his truck and I just have some no name tires that are slap worn out on mine lol

Both of our trucks are bone-stock as far as performance mods go, and the only thing mine has is the BFG's/wheels and a leveling kit. Both are SRW, but mine is ex cab/shrt bed and his is mega cab/shrt bed - both diesel/auto/4wd and we both pulled in 4lo.

I bet your trucks weigh closer than you think they do.

Don't say that, although you're probably right
