any got a "smoke switch" on there truck? was reading a thread on here and it seems to work on LLY or LBZ but bot to sure on LB7...
If you read my post I said if you have to smoke do it on the drag strip or pulling track, not the street, yes Max'd Out will smoke when your on the line, it has massive injectors and huge turbos and it take a bit to light them. If it smokes going down the track then something is wrong with it. It is street legal but no fun to drive on the street at all with the race seats, roll cage, suspension and spool in the rearend. It is a trailer queen. I run a 550 hp tune in my daily driver and if you get on it quick it will throw a little puff but not much. I can tune it to not smoke at all. I don't intentially smoke anyone out, there is no legiment reason to smoke anyone out period. Yes I get pissed at tail gaters but I don't smoke them out, if I step on my truck it takes off not smoke. A little smoke doesn't hurt anyone you say, which one of they guys who wants smoke tunes is content with a little smoke? What I want to see end is these guys smoking out intersections and acting like idiots in parking lots at these diesel events. It's killing our sport. They are no better than those idiot ricers they love to smoke out.I can agree with you 50% subman but the other 50% of me will not agree with you simply because its fun to do but just not all the time. Most of us on here probably have legiment reasons for smoking people out. Like for instance tailgaters not everybody drives fast not everybody drives slow now when some butthead rides my tail I myself smoke'em because I dont want to have to buy a new bumper when they rear-end me. Now you cant sit there and tell us not to smoke people out when all the videos Ive seen of your truck on youtube are pretty darn smokey. Infact look at your avatar look at all that smoke? I bet sometimes if you ever drive that truck on the street thats if its street legal (not a trailer queen) that you get the urge to blow some smoke and dont lie? You do don't ya? Now for turning other people in thats just wrong a little smoke never hurt anybody. If your gonna turn them in you may as well turn your self in to cause your just a guilty blowing smoke at the dragstrip as we are blowing smoke on the road aint no different. If your gonna lecture us about smoking on the street clean yours up at the dragstrip.
You hit it right on the head, and I don't know what to do about it. I'd like to see them get on the track in a sportman bracket race to try their hand at pulling the sled in a novice class, but most just won't. I don't have the answer. We need to find one though that is for sure.Well I can see where your coming from about killing the sport especially the burnouts thats just stupid to me i'm not big on the burouts. The way
I see it now that you said that is most of these people are going to the tractor pull or dragstrip and they see us spooling up and think hey thats cool lets do that when the event is over and then what do you know the whole parking lot is full of smoke. I catch your drift on that. But I'll be honest I like to blow smoke not all the time only on certain occasions lol
