Tire Smokin’ Tuesday: Original Super Duty Ford F-350 in Action

By -

Big tires and big torque lead to a monster F-350 burnout.

This week’s “Tire Smokin’ Tuesday” video comes to us from the ‘Marston Boys YouTube channel and it features a first-generation Super Duty doing a massive burnout. Even with the big tires, this diesel-powered beast puts on an impressive smoke show.

While the Super Duty name had made appearances in the past, the official introduction of the Ford Super Duty line up trucks came in 1999. When the then-new ’99 F-250 and F-350 were introduced, they were the first to be visually different from the F-150, so while they were all F-Series pickups – the first generation of the Super Duty began in 1999.

This SuperCab F-350 appears to be from the earlier part of the first generation, so it likely derives its power from a 7.3-liter Power Stroke diesel. In stock form, that engine would have offered 235 horsepower and 500 lb-ft of torque, but this truck at least has some exhaust work, if not other modifications to increase power levels.

First Gen F-350 Super Duty Burnout

Unfortunately, there is no mod list, but it is clear that this F-350 has more than enough torque to roast the big rear tires.

Big Smoke Show

The video begins with the F-350 sitting stationary. The driver eases into the throttle a bit, and then rolls in harder with the brakes lock. The rear tires only spin for a few seconds before smoke begins to pour from the rear end.

In less than 10 seconds, there is so much smoke that we can no longer see the rear tires of the F-350. After roughly 15 seconds, the driver lets off of the brake and the truck begins to roll forward, pushing the back end out to the right as the smoke show intensifies.

Even as the early Super Duty races off into the distance, it keeps on smoking the rear tires, looking more like a pro stock drag car than a heavy duty Ford truck.
