All hooking proves is who weighs more and who has better traction.. Since the OP has a chevy, expect to loose everytime against a dodge or ford. Pointless and stupid IMO

Hooking back to back isn't the smartest thing to do, but it will give you bragging rights if done in front of a bunch of people and of course if you win. Most people who say this is stupid are people who are scared, or can't afford to break things.;)

Weight and traction are the biggest factors, not horsepower, it really doesnt prove all that much

Alright, all you dads out there. If it comes down to it, he's gonna do it, so give him tips instead of warning him. Everyone knows it breaks parts, but parts can be fixed or replaced. Some people are into that (like me). He already said he drives like a maniac, anyway. And like Powerhouse said, it doesn't prove anything, but when you win in front of a crowd, its the coolest thing around.

You want a tip about hooking up? The best thing to do is go to YouTube. There are literally thousands of videos of this in action with all kinds of trucks, and you can see the similarities of all the drivers and trucks that win. Tip: the ones that usually lose floor it immediately and do a burnout while being dragged.

And BTW, in that video, is that a gasser Z71 with stacks...Good Lord.:eek:

Don't do it unless you like to replace broken parts. I hooked to my friends 05 Dodge 4dr shrt bed last weekend and he has 35's. He has Bank's stuff on his also. Says he weighs about 7600 compared to my 7k. I know I shouldn't have done it and now that i did, I know now that I definitely shouldn't have. The front right unit bearing was on it's way out according to my one friend who helped me replace the stuff Sunday on his lift.

Theres so many things you should and shouldnt do,but I seen a 1500 extcb sb dodge w/360 drag a 2500 reg cab cummins and a 3500 reg cab dooley v10 dodge.This happened the same night then a boy in a F150 reg cab sb drug the boy in the dodge 1500.So does weight really matter?It helps but ,If I wouldnt have seen it I wouldnt believe it.If u do it use a strap take ur tailgate off in case strap breaks and dont get greedy with the peddle and really turn truck back to stock.Traction is key,like the other guy said a geo could pull a ton truck if he gets his tires spiinin to much.Do it in dirt,no asphalt this is were ya break.But if ya start to hop let out,bout the only way Ive seen drivline parts break in dirt.Have fun

set the truck like your pullin sled. if you way more then the other it help high hitch helps. pull on pavement or concrete easier on stuff then dirt. I wouldn't do the just hold your brakes and wait for the other guy to spin if your close in weight and the other guy has a clue you'll loose. and don't overlook anyone you challenge.
