In cab sled pull.MP4
This is the in-cab view of my first hook. The truck is a 99 Ram 2500 with
a 6-speed. Notable mods are Quadzilla Adrenaline, 4" straight Exhaust, and a BHAF. It's got 3.55 gears with
rear factory limited-slip, I run Goodyear Duratrac's in 285/75R16 on the
stock steel wheels and I weighed in at around 7200lbs. This is a Mid
Atlantic Pulling Association event at the Cecil County Fair 2011.
I faced a dilemma going into this event. I couldn't decide which gear to
pull in. I know I'm limited by the stock clutch so 5th/low was out. That
left 4th/low or 3rd/low. I tried 4th at first because it looked the the
rest of the guys were moving pretty fast on the track and I thought I could
too. But, that clutch had to slip a little too much for my liking to get
rolling and I didn't want to feed in more power. The second attempt was
3rd/low and that got me to 252ft. On power level 5 (custom tune) the
Adrenaline recorded about 3300 RPM max, 14 MPH max, and 24 psi Boost pressure. EGT is on a stand-alone gauge
but I didn't look at it.
