sad day for spartan 250

well i finally got a chance to run my against my buddys 6leaker with a six gun (it also has a red rooster propane system but he says it was out of gas). we did a rolling run from 50 to a hundred 2 times. the first time he was on my as$ so i stomped it and i heard his truck kick down and i slowly pulled on him. not much but slowley. the second time i waved him next to me, when his front bumper reached my rear he kicked down on it followed by me doing the same. i couldnt pull him. there i sit side by side with a f'n six leaker with a SIX GUN!!!! are you kidding me! this guy doesnt even have an intake just a six gun and stacks and i cant even pull him! he shouldnt of even been close!!! i also know that all he has is a six gun and propane because i put the banks on there for him. all i can hope is that he was spraying. sad day for race fans everywhere

well im going to order it now but its not the reason to get it. i should have beat him with the 210 with him spraying pane. its going to cost me more for the 275 than what he payed for his six gun. man am i pi$$ed off. 300 dollars to beat a 6leaker makes my blood boil!!

Remember.. he weighs about 1500lbs less than you do. The 6.0L is a decent powerplant once all the issues were ironed out of them.

ive had the 250 loaded since the revisions came out. did it really learn enuff to lose that much power? its going to be a pain in the a** if everytime i want to run someone i have to reload the tunes. and im going to have the sam problem with the 275 when i get it.

I'm not a drag racer, but I do think I know what ungodly fast is.
I would love to take a shot at that truck with my 275 V2..
If you are running a V3, then that is where your problems start.
The V3 is super smooth and very very good, but it lacks that raw, ugly, nasty, crazy, silly, wild, ripping power of the V2.
I think I would be confident to throw down a *****load of cash on that run with the V2.

2008 F-350
KEM 345 tuned.

all i have currently is the 250 and i have both versions of it. i cant run v2 right now since its colder than hell. is the 275 that much faster than the 250? just seems WAY overpriced.
