I have a ZF6 and going to try a sled pull. What gear is recommended to start in? Should I shift after i get moving? Stock clutch right now but if i toast it this weekend will be getting a southbend.
That was my concern with it. Idk how much power he's going to put down but starting out in too high will involve slipping the clutch a crap ton and possibly smoking it and stalling the truck.I have seen guys choose the wrong gear a number of times. I even saw a guy smoke his clutch for the first 50ft before he finally realized it and let out all the way on the clutch. I think in 4lo 2nd gear ur top speed is about 1mph lol, but then again 4th gear might stall out a stockish truck.
That's the only part I'm fuzzy about. His sig says PPE standard and who knows what tune he's running. If he's going easy on it, 4th might choke it outIt looks like 3rd gear on a zf6 is 2.1:1 ratio and 4th is 1.31:1. The 6spd auto is 1.4:1 in 3rd and that's what I use but it shifts up to 3rd gear. U r actually starting out in one gear with a manual. I'm curious now. Would u get enough ground speed starting out in a 2.1:1 gear? Obviously it's multiplied by the tcase but I'm thinking maybe 4th is better(on a tuned truck making good power).
I think so too. The standard on the 225 setting makes good power but I don't think it makes enough to pull 4th gear. But only my opinion and I have no experience with pulling a stick truck.That's the only part I'm fuzzy about. His sig says PPE standard and who knows what tune he's running.
