Hi,

When you guys are running the SCT and decide to race either on the track or at a stoplight, are you using 4 wheel drive or just 2? I wasn't sure it 4 wheel drive is harder on the truck. Thanks for info.

When I'm racing light to light. I run in 2 wheel drive. Never tried running in 4 wheel drive. I'm guessing the only advantgage would be I'd get a better jump instead of spinning tires. But I'm not sure how or if it would affect the 4 wheel drive system or not.

If I know I've got them, I use 2WD, and roll into the throttle.

If I think its going to be a race, I use 4WD, and power brake.:woot: Haven't hurt anything yet.:Thumbup:

:agreed:

i alwasy stay in 2wd on the street unless the speed limit is at least 55 or if i dont think its gonna be an easy kill! i get goin too fast too fast in 4wheel! :sly:
ALSO a lot of the trucks that go to the track a lot have launched many many times....

When i'm at the track i always put it in four wheel drive. My times at the track in the 1/8 mile were in the 8.9's. And that was with the edge. Now that i have the SCT, eric at ID said the times will be faster yet. When i race from light to light i end up sitting there frying the tires.
