Is my truck a freak??

So I have a 99.5 7.3 quad cab 4x4 I have a ts 6 position chip n intake, straight exhaust, hpx, over boost innilahator, IAH delete, n gauages I keep it on the 100 hp tune usually jus drive conservitally but whenever I've been challenged 5.9 duallies, tuned 6.0s,6.4 n 6.7 n a duramax I always basically destroy them! Is this normal? Thinking of taking her to the track n boostin her anyone ever launch in 4wd then switch back to 2wd? Kinda unsure bout it.

sorry to say with those mods you are not going to out run a tuned 6.0, 6.4, 6.7 or a duramax but launching in 4 wheel drive is fine

It wont switch out of 4x4 until you let off of it. I'd like to run you in my 6.4. I used to find people to race all the time in my 99 but now for some reason only a handful of people have wanted to play with me haha. So far I've killed everything.

haha trolan? sounds like some other word . . .
Just my honest opinion, but while driving and then switching to 2wd would be a bad idea. But I just have a 2wd dually, what do i know

leave it in four wheel drive, I leave the chevy in four wheel peel when rippin from red light to red light. usually launch it at 12 psi boost at 2200 rpms just to watch blow the tires off.
