what gear does everyone pull in(auto)

i usually pull in 2nd gear 4 low but am worried about turning the cummins 4000 rpms. i have already blow one motor. Thats why for any of you that were at stergis and saw me pull i sucked it up at the end, because i was only holing it at 3000rpm. i know im a sissy, but the $12,000 did not come out of any of you guys pockets:deal: :

u need speed u use torque at the begining of the run to get the sled moving and relay on speed so the truck has an easier time pulling it and then torque at the end of the run to finish the job

I put 800lbs on the front a Elite sledpulling tune = 420RWHP. Running 33" BFG's I pull it down to 3rd low range, powerbrake on the line and off I go Full wheel speed on the line.

I pulled like 8 pulls in 07 I got 1st 2 times and made 3 or 4 full pulls. I was usally in the top 5. A big pull in east farther I pull in a class of 20 street trucks and took 2nd.

Never ran out of power running 3rd low with the converter locked she spun em hard at the end.
