Got stuck behind a douche wagon super duty at the car was yesterday. Guy didn't take dragging the low clearance sign along the roof as a hint. Kept seeing his hack fuck bumper mount l.e.d. reverse lights go on on off. Apparently his super wide rims got wedged in the spot your tire goes so the car wash knows to start. In trying to get out he fucked up the washer arm. I was mildly pissed that I had to wait for the car wash to be fixed, right up until I realized what happened.

No fucking way I believe one ran 9s. Building a 7.3 to handle that just doesn't happen often.
Was it orange?

No, it was forest green iirc.

I talked to the guy in the parking lot about it after watching it run. He would make the run in 4 wheel drive, and after the race would put the DOT tires back on it and pull trailers for his brush clearing business during the week. I actually ended up buying some parts for my project car from him a few weeks later.

heh funny, I saw a slammed gray primer c1500 with a detroit 453t at the car craft car show, never saw the owner, couple months later I go looking at a 7spd twin countershaft trans on craigslist for cheap and oddly enough, it's the owner of that truck

in a thread related note, said he was taking out the allison and putting in a twin stick box so that "he could lug it to roll coal"

I didn't think that detroits took well to being heavily loaded at low RPMs?

They don't. Hopefully it'll run backwards and destroy said coal rolling pile.

in a normal application, yes, detroits suck hard

lugging it at idle or so, you're moving maybe 30hp worth of air, can't hurt anything with that amount of air no matter the fuel you throw at it
much less a 1200lb 212ci lump of iron, probably even do it quite a while with no coolant whatsoever
