I'm thinking about it. I've never been because I always go to bloomsburg and they're pretty close to eachother.

Yep, I'll be with FSC as well. Fairgrounds are 7 miles from my house, no reason not to show up.
Have a good trip up! :D

You didnt see my dually get spanked by the Dodge in the tug of war right on the mainstage? I couldnt believe it! The dually weighs 9700lbs before myself and 2 passengers that were inside and the 7200lb standard Dodge pulled me away! I spoke to him afterward. He said he aired down, pulled in 4w low and low gear. I smoked all 6 tires trying to pull him but man it was fun!!!

Haha:D. I wish I could have beat him my man! That freakin Dodge beat out everyone and won! Liberator had atleast 2 of their trucks there and were all beat too. It was so funny, the Dodge was an old 12V xcab dually all beat up rusted and dented (not that it changes anything). I spoke to the owner, he said he hooks chains every week with it and almost always wins! Believe it or not he claims his gas powerwagon is even better and would beat the Cummins. Im not going to lie, I didnt prep anything. I just drove in as is and hooked up. No airing down, no special tires and coolant was blowing out of my reservoir from the head gaskets:D. I just did it for fun and hoped I didnt break anything.The dodge had gears and bald tires for traction. The owner told me he brought it that way just to do the tug.

LOL thanks man. I hopefully will have my motor finished next year and be set up a little better. I was so freakin excited i didnt pay attention to the rpms and/or the wheel speed! I believe I made a mistake by not doing it in 4wheel low. The acceleration is very slow b/c of torque management or some crap. I didnt want him to get a jump on me having to wait for power to build so I ran 4w hi. Hence the rapid tire spin:D
