Dad’s F-350 Does a Monster Burnout: Tire Smokin’ Tuesday
Puff of diesel soot is followed by a massive cloud of tire smoke from this 6.4-liter-powered Ford F-150.
This week’s Tire Smokin’ Tuesday video comes to us from the YouTube channel of Joshua Hornberger and it features his dad’s Ford F-350 Super Duty putting on a multicolored smoke show. This second generation Super Duty looks like your average, hard-working pickup, but that doesn’t stop it from putting on a remarkable smoke show in the family driveway, painting to thick lines all of the way out to the road.
There are no details on this Ford F-350, shy of the fact that it has a 6.4-liter engine. In fact, it doesn’t say that this is a Ford F-350, but we know from the exterior styling that this is a second generation Super Duty, offered for the 2008, 2009 and 2010 model years. We also know that it is powered by the 6.4-liter PowerStroke V8, which delivered 350 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque with help from a 5-speed automatic transmission.
Well, this engine offered those power figures when stock, but the puff of black smoke preceding this burnout action suggests that this PowerStroke V8 diesel engine has been tuned for extra power. We don’t know what else may have been added, but we know that a stock engine won’t roll coal like this Super Duty, so it is packing more power than stock.
The video begins with ‘dad’ easing into the throttle, tightening up the suspension as the diesel engine slowly adds power to the rear wheels, but before the tires begin to spin, he lets off of the throttle. The driver immediately climbs back into the throttle, and that is when the smoke show begins.
At first, a puff of black smoke blasts from the exhaust, but as the F-350 inches forward, white smoke begins to pour off of both rear tires. The cloud quickly engulfs the rear end of the Super Duty as it nears the road, at which point the driver lifts and ends the burnout, turning onto the roar and driving off into the distance.
The clip ends with a look back at the dark, black stripes painted on the driveway.
