Sunday night I tried my luck hooking to the sled at one of the local fair. Pulled in the work stock diesel class. Pulled 274.38 ft and got third place. I had the first place truck beat the first time but being as he was first in the class he got a rehook and won it. The second place truck was a 07 GMC c/c with a flat bed that ended up pulling with the bigger diesel classes and placed in the top of those classes. He had the PPE+2 which on it's top setting is good for 300HP I think so there was no way I could catch him. On to the vid and pics.

No I pulled in the work stock class. No weights on the front end but you can have them in the bed. I need to find me something that would work for weights.

your rear rims look funny in the video haha
I thought they looked pretty cool in the video myself.

what should i set my PPE at.... tow?
Idk I'd go at least level 3 or 4..I mean, they always say the 4-5 and 5-6 shifts are the ones that kill your stock clutches. Your TC might not like you after that though, but it probably never did :crazy:

Set it as high as it will go. Your only going up to 3rd gear. The guy that go second in my class had an 07 GMC Cab/Chassis and runs his PPE+2 on the top setting daily. He has an 04 that he ran it the same way. Some how his 04s tranny is just now starting to show signs of needing work. Blows me away that it has lasted that long seeing as both trucks are farm trucks.

If I had cut the bucket out so there was a hole then yeah it would have made sense to do that but I doubt the gains would have been there with it blocked off.:crazy:
