this thing is HARD to drive... :rofl:
launched around 2k in 1st... spun...
shift into 2nd... spun...
3rd... 3k rpm hits almost immediately
then its 4th and 5th
i think i was in each gear for a good 2 or 3 seconds... max...

and all that vigirious shifting and i got a 16.8 and 86mph

exciting... :doh:


any tips? should i just skip gears? or should it just stick to towing my cars...

its a 99.5, 6spd, dp tow tune, sb ofe, regcab, long bed, lsd, 2wd

I dragged my 6 speed it was a joke cant use 1st gear at all.. take off in second I covered my white box sides with rubber ... I tried different launch rpms and nothing really seemed to work.. I did install a true trac in the rear diff so I may try it this summer again now that I have power at both rear tires rather then just 1...
