F-250 Power Stroke Won’t Smoke the Tires, Commenters Go Crazy

By -

YouTuber with ’17 Ford F-250 Super Duty with the 6.7L Power Stroke V8 can’t figure out how to do a burnout. Viewers lose their minds.

The video above comes to us from the BlacknWhiteBuilds423 YouTube channel and it features a 2017 Ford F-250 Platinum powered by the 6.7L Power Stroke diesel V8.

Honestly, the video is incredibly boring, but the comments are comedy gold. The video is mostly the host talking about how he is trying to buy his wife a new Jeep while driving around town in his 2017 F-250. When he is unable to order the new Wrangler, he heads out to do some burnouts in his new Super Duty. With the 6.7L Power Stroke V8 delivering 440 horsepower and 925lb-ft of torque, this Ford truck is one of the most powerful sold in the world, so it seems likely that all of that diesel twist will have no problems roasting the tires.

However, a vehicle is only as good as the driver, and this YouTuber can’t figure out how to get a truck with 925lb-ft of torque to spin the rear tires. As you might imagine, the viewers who took the time to comment let the guy have it, and for good reason.

Failed F-250 Burnout

Starting around the 5:30 mark of the video, the YouTuber attempts to do burnouts with his diesel-powered 2017 Ford F-250. I have put plenty of miles on a truck just like this one and during that time, I had absolutely no problem doing big, nasty burnouts, but this guy claims that his will not do it. He insists that the traction control is off, the truck is just too hi-tech to do a burnout.

F-250 Failed Burnout

If he’s hoping for some sympathy, there is none to be found in the comment section. Some of the viewers who commented criticized the guy for even trying to do a burnout with a truck that cost more than $80,000. Some simply couldn’t resist making fun of him for not being able to smoke the tires. Others insisted that he needed to hold the traction control button down longer to disable the stability control system as well. But the YouTuber claimed that he did and it still didn’t smoke the tires.

The Comments

Overall, the crowd made it clear that they blame this guy for his Super Duty not being able to spin the tires. Below are a few of the more colorful comments:

It’s called torque management. It won’t give you more than you need. – Ray Wilson

Oh and 440 horsepower 925 lbs torque is not weak lol. – KrazyWyteBoy 19

Just because a vehicle won’t do a burnout or go fast doesn’t mean its weak. When was the last time you saw a train do 0-60 in less than 15 seconds – Driver SS

the truck has been nannystated to death. traction ontrol. torque limiting in first and second gear…thanks government. – Gizmo Thewytchdoktor

The 2017 SuperDuty is anything but Super. Having had mine for 7 months, it’s obvious Ford builds these trucks for city slicker morons. – zfilmmaker

It’s not that it won’t do a burn out. It’s this f*****g moron doesn’t know how. – Troy Mustgrave

Great idea to try and tear up a brand new truck and burn those tires down. Might a well give the truck to a 16 year old kid. – bluebird5100

its because Ford limits torque in first gear so it makes a lot less torque than when it gets in 2and gear cause if it had it all in 1st it would roast the tires right at the smash of the gas. Ram and Chevy both do that to in their newer trucks as well. also another possible reason is just pressing the traction control doesn’t turn it fully off you have to hold it for I believe 10-15 seconds then a message should show up saying “advanced trac off” then it will spin the tires most likely. – Shawn Prickett

A fool and his money are soon parted. This ding-dong doesn’t need a nice truck. – Judge Parker

So, do you think that the problem is the truck or the driver?
