F-250 Makes Black and White Clouds: Tire Smokin’ Tuesday
Diesel power helps this F-250 Super Duty put on a great show in a burnout competition.
This week’s Tire Smokin’ Tuesday video comes to us from the Hotrods & Harleys YouTube channel and it features a first generation Ford F-250 Super Duty. Thanks to a set of huge stacks in the bed and what is likely a modified diesel engine, this high-riding workhorse puts on a fantastic show with two different types of smoke.
The truck in action in the video above is a Ford F-250 from the early part of the first generation of the Super Duty. The Super Duty was officially introduced for the 1999 model year and it received a facelift for the 2005 model year. This truck doesn’t have that newer face, so we know that this big Ford is from the 1999-2004 model years.
We also know that it is powered by a diesel engine, but since we don’t know the model year, we don’t know which oil-burner is under the hood. From 1999 through 2003, the F-250 came with the 7.3-liter Power Stroke diesel engine while the 2004 models got the then-new 6.0-liter diesel. The odds are good that this truck has the 7.3, but it could have the 6.0. In any case, it packs plenty of diesel torque, allowing it to smoke the tires good and hard.
The Smoky Action
The video begins with the Ford F-250 Super Duty rolling up to the burnout box of a drag strip. After a few seconds of talking to the judge, the driver begins smoking the tires by gradually leaning into the throttle until the rear rubber starts to spin.
At first, there isn’t much smoke coming from the tires, with the stacks in the bed creating almost as much smoke as the tires, but within a few seconds, the burnout really picks up. What started off as a drab burnout turns into an awesome smoke show, engulfing the back end of the truck in smoke until the run ends.
Crank up your speakers and enjoy!
