School me

Thinking about hooking to the sled. I know a few things, just need help on some others, and if anyone has any tips that you want to share, please to. So far i have, put it in 4 low, i have an auto, so put it in 2nd. And put my chip on street race, because thats where i have the most power. Now i heard something about clamping your springs to help wheel hop? In front or be hide the axle? Just in the back of the truck? I'm going to hook my snow plow brackets and lights up so that will give me more weight. What about my tire pressure? I know i want more in the back than the front. My tire says 80psi, but i never run that much. I was thinking 55 in back and 45 in front? Sorry for long post another thing i just thought of, if i have my water/meth on in time, should i run only water to keep things cool? or more meth to give me more power? One last thing, do i want to get the sled rolling then floor it? or floor it right from the get go?

Actually made me a little hungry too. I have been wanting to Sled Pull but never have. I think by this time tomorrow you will have a ton of input.

Lunch time for me...............

if you havnt pulled before see if they have whats called a limited class. its limited to 15mph. thats the class i run in cause i dont have the power of the other guys that run the class. but for me i run 3rd on the low side and it keeps me right around 15. but then have a little extra pedal for when it starts to slow me down..
