My daily driver is a race file! It all depends on how you drive.

Ted at ID said that's what he runs daily and it's safe and alot of people are running the extreme race daily too. I've been running the extreme street for about 300 miles and will contine too. I would run the extreme race but I'm a little gun shy about that. BTW I have a 04 f250 cc long bed with a 8" lift and 37's and I can smoke all 4. Great tune

Xtreme race is my daily driver file for over a year now... So yes, you're good to go.

Shu873, were you trying to say over a "year" now?

Would you guys still say it's safe to run extreme daily if you have stock engine. I've noticed that most have a lot of aftermarket goodies and studs. Is it easy to damage stock engines and transmissions. What about 4wd trucks?

I don't have any aftermarket goodies on mine. I was told that I would be fine without headstuds with the Xtreme Street. Now granted, I don't beat on my truck and I am sure if I was a 17 year old launching off every light, it may not be a safe setup. I am sure headstuds are required or at least highly recommended with an Xtreme Race file, but for a stock setup, you will be fine with the Xtreme street. Make the plunge. :thumb:

Hey guys i have an 01 350 I have a sctxcal2 and my tunes are max power , tow torque, and tow power. Daily i run on the max power but i'm not that impressed with the tow power. Just wondering if you guys liked the extreme street. Or the extreme race I think I am going to get some new tunes.
