5.9 cummins kill

Lined up my F450 6.0 6 speed w/Edge with my buddys 03 3500 6 speed dually w/smarty. He pretty much kept up, maybe a cab length behind me until I governed at 130km/h. He gave me a wave and put about a length or two between us before I remembered to turn the key forward. Poor ol' 6.0 blew his doors off at 3600 rpm in OD, straight pipe just a'screaming! Rolled onto the highway and left him behind again, way behind, choking on a little smoke. I've never heard my 19.5s howl like that.... worked it out last night, with 4.30 gears and 3600 rpm, I was 170km/h+ ..... closed course with a professional driver, of course

Nice one! Good to hear about someone racing with a 6spd behind their 6.0.

All real trucks have three pedals.

Nope, I was already in overdrive. Key forward (start position, and hold it there) to override the factory governor

As far as I've seen, that only works on 6.0s
