Agree for Street Racing,
Only problem, at the Drag strip (not all) you have to drive through the water box. Then what ? Only option is 2wd burnout, then your wet front wheels spin In 4wd.

And the M3 as well as the GTR have High Performance 4wd modes (all wheel drive)
Was not aware of that. Respect!

My Dad was the building inspector in Denver, an avid trout fisherman, I’ve been fishing with him there in Ft Collins..
Regards
The fire we had last summer really thumped the river. Trout fishing is still pretty good as long as its been a while since a rain. After a good rain up the watershed....the river is as black as coal for a few weeks. It's amazing those fish can feed and survive with that much sediment in the water column...

My trucks are 2wd, if you have a 4wd without mods, I would launch it in 4, but the best alternative (if they are serious and tuned) is put it in 2wd, Drag radials, roll through or if possible, skip the water box, hold the brake pedal down and do a burnout, 20-25 lbs air, boost to 2500-3000 and dump it….engaging the front differential puts a lot of drag in the straightaway…
I actually tried to power brake mine once and it couldn't break loose, even with TC turned off.

I heard the ford tune won't allow building boost power breaking.

I have a tune an I have tried to get a 0-60 using a phone app out in the boonies on some empty roads an the apps don't do well but the truck in 4x4 does. I shut it down after passing 60 mph.

I have the electric rear locker an you have to be going under 25 for it to engage an it kicks off after 25 but it can't kick off until there's a drop in driveline tension when you let off. I'm just afraid of possible damage to the dif. There's 2 dragways near me an I'd like to make a pass to get a real time. I used to run my 5.0 mustangs an cobra all the time.

I think Brandon (Don Don baby raptor) has the ford tune, you can pm him, remember you can’t power brake 4wd, you can to a point but not for spinning the tires, if you are running in 4wd, no need to engage the locker. I have many runs on the locker in 2wd.

Yeah im looking into my warranty, seeing they FORD will let me keep my extended warranty if i go with FP, if not, I am most definitely...eventually....going with Unleashed or Livernois.

I am sure its a blast cruising around with that extra torque

You outta be able to boil the tires in 2wd with that tune ! :)
I know for a fact that with the Livernois 93, you can make 'em rip through 1st three gears on full throttle (sport mode) from a street stop light...without pre-rev, etc... or, maybe I think I do and it wasn't me, honest ??
