Think I kill this CHEVY!

My want a truck pull and thinks his chevy will pull my ford backwards. I just keep laughing. Hes got a completely restored 1970 Chevy K20 with a 350 v8, 4 speed, 4x4, with 35's and 4.10 gear. I see this as taking candy from a baby. My obs automatic powerstroke should just take him down with ease. What yall think?

he wants to do it on pavement so i think he will stall but he does have a really low first gear in low range. Im mostly afraid of breaking my truck than losing.

yeah, if he's got the np435 then he's got a granny low.. 6.69 ratio.. plus 4.10s in the axle..

i'm not good with all the math that goes into this, but i do know that you're significantly heavier and a powerstroke should outpull a 350 any day


i just looked at your mods, you should take him, your bigger tires give you a significant advantage. also just be aware if he has lockers he'll have all 4 tires pulling. so be careful about that, though 38's vs 35s you should be fine

Pavement it will be close. Dirt neither will win. Both are heavy trucks. I think I am going to have to go with the stroke on pavement.
