Mines a 12 Valve..... they switched to 24 valve halfway through 98.

For the amount of Km's and what my truck's been through all its life, there isnt anything bad i can say about dodge right now. The plan was to buy a gasser half ton, and then it definately would have been chev, but nothing newer than 03. The chev trucks just arent what they used to be. And im not a huge fan of the indepandant front on the duramax. :confused:

Got a quick video today, with a digital camera. Not the best, but you get the idea. I fired the cameraman by the way. Hopefully more to come, and i'll actually try to get on it more. Those darn 19.5's spin like nothin.

Enjoy the sound as well, i know you d-max guys don't hear anything that good unless it's blowing past you! :rof



Just kidding guys...... only truck thats beat me was a D-max. :mad:

the only tire i seen spinnin was the right rear,i wonder what causes that..thats what i love about the GM trucks they have positive traction straight from the factory..the duramax is quick on it's feat but in the truck pulls it takes a tad bit more to beat the cummins not that the duramax doesn't make a good show just alot of times there is a cummins that takes the show..Diesels,the Wave of the Future..
ps i never got beat YET,the only close call was with a sweet runnin cummins..

Right on, if only they had a solid front end too. I was trying to NOT spin the tires, but my buddy told me i spun again when i turned around, didnt even notice. Gonna try and get another better vid tonight. :rockin

Could be, i don't have a clue. I know it doesnt have a limited slip, so i think thats just the way it is. :mad:
