Sled Pulling

I was wondering if any of you sled pull with your 6.0? And if you pulled in 2nd or 3rd gear with it. I have been pullin in 3rd but sometimes it shifts to fast and up to high. Whats your opinions?

Put her in D and gooooooooooooooooooooooooo LOL....

J'K i'm sure more experienced 6.0 drivers will be along to help out. I do know for sure you don't want too high of a gear otherwise you'll lug it and won't go anywhere down the stretch.

I think the best way is to go 4 low and start in 2nd and then shift to 3rd. If I am wrong, someone please correct me. I think that is correct though.

PS...I moved this to the sled pulling section for ya.

As far as my 6.0 is concerned, you are correct Logan... I just pulled for the first time tonight, and kept it in 2nd. I got my revs up real early and never shifted in to 3rd... If I had done so early on, I could have kept my revs up high and had the wheel speed to go with it. I'm sure I could have pulled much farther... But for my first time, I still had a blast!

Just my advise so take it with a grain of salt.... But if I were you and its your first time I'd put it in 3rd right off the bat and let it shift itself (providing you have an auto tranny?) I know its better to be able to shift yourself, but if your anything like me as it was my first time I was a little nervous, didn't know what to expect and that'd be one less thing to worry about. So long as you've got good traction you'll be ok, just get it rolling and hammer down. Another piece of advise if I may, don't wait too long to hammer it so long as you don't hop. If you wait too long you'll never get your RPM's up as the sled will already be coming toward you...

How are you pulling in a modified gas class? Is there not a stock diesel class for you to run in?
