08 f450 vs. 2006 dmax

i got a 2008 f450 kr stock with 4:30 rears.my drinkin buddy has a 2006 dmax dually.hes runnin an intake and exhaust.he kept on talkin smack so i said we should race sometime.

so anyway he left.the next day i was haulin my emty 32ft goosneck to go get my new jd tractor.then i see him with his 30ft gooseneck.i flag him down and say lets race.so led him to this old road which was only about an eighth of a mile long maybe a little longer.so anyway

1st race:i had him off the line and at about 40mph i pulled ahead of him about half a truck lenth and when the race ended i pulled a whole truck length.

2nd race:{we went a little further down the road this time}i had him off the line again but by about 50mph he had pulled even with me but we didnt have enough road to keep going.so we had a pretty good tie.

so it was a pretty fun towing race.i realized this weekend though i need to get a spartan tuner pretty soon.next weekend were gonna race without a load.

Considering how much more you weighted then him i say you did very well. The 450 is very impressive when i comes to towing.

I'd say you kicked his butt! With a bigger truck and bigger trailer, that's pretty impressive that you were able to out pull him. I'm guessing you probably had close to 5k lbs more than him. ?
That's the way they out to do diesel drags, hook a trailer to them and make them really work!

Hey what's this doing in the competition forum???????






































































F450 vs. ANY Dirtymax that's not a competition It's a way to let the Chebby boys know where they belong (looking at the tailgate of a Ford pulling away).

Nice work!!!
