Hook 'em up...you may not believe this

Found this in a myspace bulletin from a friend of mine. Before you look, it's a HUGE dual stacked Super Duty which sounds like a 7.3 versus a stock height hood stacked 6.6 duramax. Really I laughed my butt of at this!

hey smoke...not to burst your bubble or anything....BUT

That Dmax was chipped HEAVVVVIIILLLLY......you dont blow black smoke like that even on a moderate tune.....

Secondly that lifted ford would lose to Alans truck due to the fact it has half the pounds per square inch of traction.....

Thirdly...the minute they started "equiling out" the ford backed out....hench the smoke lessening and completely stopping. You can listen to the engine noise that proves this....

Now.....i want you to look very closely at the video.....look at the chebby's brake lights.....this was an unfare match and thats probably why the ford backed out. The cheby gave the ford an intentional heas start. The chevy had its BRAKES ON and powerbraked it till his boost got up while the ford started pulling as a real man would. The chevy used the powerbraking to slow down the ford till his boost let up and then carefully released the pedal so as not to loose any ground and then let 25 plus PSI of boost kick in. The chevy didnt win squat....he cheated.....the brakelights tell it all

Yeah, what Marc said. And anyone that has a single front stack, has a lot more than that done.

I always agree with you Marc, but this time i'm going to have to disagree.

First I know the Duramax was heavily chipped, I saw the smoke and heard the engine. I posted the video because I thought it was funny to see such a large truck that most people would think will win against such a smaller vehicle even with the obvious higher power lose the pull. I didn't really post it to have it picked apart or anaylyzed and broken down for me. All of the hooks I have been to and the "hookers" (no pun intended ) I have talked to have said it's not just hittin the gas and goin. It's also in the technique to maintain traction. I've seen big trucks win and lose being higher and lower powered. And I really don't think there is any real "man" issue. If it's a competition, the objective is to win by any means necessary unless there are rules that state otherwise. I've reviewed the video constantly and it pretty much starts while the trucks are already into the pedal, so there's not a real great way to tell if he gave the Ford a head start or not other than clicking stop/play/stop/play. Also I can't see any brake lights on the ford at all so who is to say the Ford wasn't on the brakes at any given time either? Now sure, you should be able to see a glimmer on the side of the light where the light is located, but then again, who is to say he does not have an aftermarket set that doesn't enable you to tell if they are on or not from the angle the video was shot? It reminds me of watching Pinks the other night, a team felt it got cheated when they were actually outnegotiated for a matchup. The Ford probably would have lost anyway, but if he didn't use his brakes then he got outplayed and outpulled fair and square. I like to put my money on trucks based on what i've seen and if I had seen this matchup I for sure would have put my money on the duramax.

i would disagree with you on one point...to build boost with the brakes is one thing, but the smoke doesnt start on that dmax for at least three quarters of a second AFTER the ford starts pulling it. The idea of standing on the brakes to get the other truck to start spinning its tires may win pull, but is not fair in any bumper to bumper competition.

Also smoke....are you SURE thats a ford...the cab body line doesnt look right to me. The only thing yo have to make it a ford is the parking lights, and im still not convinced after watching it many times....just a thought..

Marc, I think it is a Ford. You can see the chrome around the grill with a larger dark spot in the middle. I bet that is a PSD grill.

Figured I'd step in and let the truth be told...

The "smaller" truck is BBunting's truck, a pulling 7.3 from blackwidowdiesel who is sponsoring our fellow member Mech2161. The HUGE truck is a 2005 Superduty from JHoss with F550 badges on 2.5 ton rockwells.

Bbunting's truck was driven by Elmo in the parking lot after the diesel showdown in Houston. JHoss's truck runs 16.2 in the 1/4 mile. Bbunting runs low 12's. JHoss had him and thought he'd show off and ended up boiling the tires which allowed Elmo to drag him off... There will be a rematch next year.


Here is a picture of the big truck during the day...


Here is a video of BBunting's truck... back when he was in the 13's...

This is Elmo's truck... the driver of Bbunting's truck that night..
