Pics of the pull truck

Here are a few before and after pics of the YES DEERE 2wd Street Modified pulling truck that we just built.

Also wanted to thank Gene (WeWeld) & Sheryl for doing a great job on my vinyl and the personal touch of hand delivering to Iowa was great!

We keep tweeking and changing things as we go. It runs OK but nothing like some of our competitors. We are just testing and make sure that chasis is setup right and seeing what an automagic C6 trans will do. Nobody else will run one so we have to be different and atleast try it. We will be doing some minor things coming up and then play with the weights and see if that will help get us some wheel speed. Everyone said this motor sounded pretty decent but we just couldn't get the tires to break loose. If we can do that then we may be able to play a little.

You need to save your money for a good tranny either a Big$$$ c-6 fully rollerized or go with a slipper and a 4 speed. Ever thought of putting a transfer case on it just for more gear combos or possibly shifting it? Just cuz its 2wd doesnt mean you cant run a 205. You would have to swap tailshafts on the tranny tho.

You know you are doing something right when the Ford dealers call you for parts.

Thanks Gene.

As for the trans we are just testing the waters. All of the guys in our class run 4 speeds with slipper clutches. None of them have ever tried an auto. We like to be different so we are trying it out. At 2K for a clutch we can shell a few C6's but I know of a couple other pullers (other parts of the country) that run C6's with around 900HP so I am not to worried. Never thought of the transfer case. That may be something we look into.

Our first pull we went 105' in the heavy class. We have since found out that we were in the wrong side of our rear end (we have a 2 speed rear). The next pull we put some money into a couple areas and went 252' in the light class and 216' in the heavy class. This is with out getting any wheel speed and really getting moving. We are playing with a couple small things and then different weight settings to see if we can get the tires to break loose and get some RPM.

If you want to spin them shave almost all the lug off those back tires. Knife edge them.
