7.3 dually vs 05 duramax dually tow off

So I was at the bar and talking about having a tow off. I got in with a 05 dually duramax programmer. Intake and injectors. I have intake and exhaust. We hooked them up. No weight in the beds. Rear to rear. On dry pavement. Both boosted then pulled. My 7.3 draged him. His tires never spun or budged. He broke his universal tie rods and front drive shafts...... I drove away fine. Great success!!!

i had a buddy rag me about how bad a solid front axle rides, blah blah blah. i asked him how expensive tie rods and axles are, and he shut up. i'll take my strong solid axle that rides a tad rough (rough country shocks and leafs up front) over a IFS ****box anyday. IFS is for cars.

took him for a ride in mine and he goes "wow, it rides better than i thought"

boost launch and destroy him next time.
