quarter mile ??

Hi everybody
im new to this forum but had a couple of questions.
i was at my local ford dealership and i was talking with the diesel mechanic and he was telling me that some people at our local drag strip that had propaine and nitrous on their 6.0 would run the 1/4mile in 4wheel drive b/c that was the only way they could get it to hook up. has any body heard of this? and do u think the transfer case will handel the power? or just fall out?!

It's the only way to drag...Why would you want to drag an extra 1500#'s if you were not going to use it!!! I get a kick out of watching people in 4wd trucks running in 2wd... The only ones I would be afraid of would be a chevy... Try it! You will never believe how hard you can launch in 4wd!!!

Ya alot of guys launch ther trucks in 4 hi. Hooks up and throws you back in the seat like you wouldn't believe. No feeling quite like launching that big truck of the line. I've only done it a few times but alot of people have made quite a few passes that way with no problems yet. But as with all the mod's etc. you play you pay theres always the chance to break something.

When we first started racing our Powerstrokes in 97 I tried some 2wd runs. Talk about ruining a good set of tires, ridiculous!

I took 2 full seconds off the ET running in 4wd high..

I've done one 2WD launch. All my buddies still say it was my best run. I was 3 seconds slower than my next slowest, but apparently everyone loved the mix of white smoke from the tires and black smoke from the exhaust. I think I left about 5000 miles worth of tire on the first 100 feet of track. I even tried to feather it, but all it would do is spin.

I've made several runs in 4X4. Just sucks when you are half track and the back u joint on the front driveline let's loose and flails around and busts the T case. But man when you get a good launch with it in 4X4 it friggin pulls!
