So what do you guys think? Do you think I will destroy my clutch if I do a 3rd low? Or should I be safe and go 2nd low? I just want to do one pull but I would like my clutch to last about 100xxx miles if possible. I hardly ever turn my chip on when regular driving. Do you think I will be fine in 3rd low or not. Also either in 2nd low or 3rd low what setting on the chip level 5 100hp. I want a respectable distance just without tearing the crap out of my clutch. Also if I do go 3rd low should I just dump the clutch and take off or will that kill the truck?

2nd gear low range will be pretty easy on your clutch, 3rd gear will not. you will have to slip the clutch a bit to get it moving. the guys who dump the clutch have dual disks and are at full boost when they dump it.

So how bad do you think it will be on my clutch in 3rd? Do you think I could burn the clutch up in one pull or will it just hurt it a little bit. I want a respectable pull at least say 150-160ft without burning up my clutch. I am really anxious to pull but really do want to tear out a clutch. Also how much farther will I get in 3rd instead of 2nd?

just keep the revs way down till the clutch locks up, i bet i have seen 1/3rd of the trucks waste the clutch in 50 feet. it is your decision, but beware that sled is heavy.

If you just want 150 or so feet then go for 2low. If you're only gonna pull once, then it ain't worth burning up the clutch. On a stock clutch, that's not gonna be replaced anytime soon, I'd think 3rd would only be good on a slick track. IF you go third you still may not get too far, I doubt you'll run out of power but if the clutch doesn't grab completely, you'll burn it up. I'm not saying that third gears the wrong one to run, alot of people do it, but alot people also have aftermarket clutches.

yeah I think I will pull in 2nd low. I just can't take the chance of smokin up my clutch. WIll I be pretty safe in 2nd? Also what level on my chip. I don't know how much it will help me or not. How good do you guys think I will do in 2nd low. I won't be pulling with to many bigger guys it's mostly around town guys with thier stock ford's and durmax's no real big competors. Also when I take off with the sled should I pretty much just dump the clutch and go or slip it a little bit to get the sled moving.

I would say baby the clutch just a little off the line like you have a heavy load on the back.

If you just dump the clutch you asking to break something. I have a friend who pulls a lot and he broke 2- TWO! - mainshafts in his 6spd last year doing that!
