Tremor Diesel in a pull off vs Chevy & Dodge

Seems like a Dodge ad at first read.

I would guess with some more set up adjustment the Tremor would have performed better or maybe if they did not have the Tremor package. I know a guy who truck pulls and more suspension is not good for truck pulls. Its very specific weight transfers. More suspension travel costs you power to the ground. I was shocked that the Chevy won it. They seem so mild and wimpy when you drive them.
 
Interesting. On paper, I think the Ford would seem to be the clear winner (tires, rear locker/front limited slip, big power). The not able to boost in 4-LO is what got the Ford in 2nd place.
I am not sure if a tuner can eliminate the "no brake torque application" in 4-LO in the Ford.

If it can, Ford Tremor 6.7 would win all day.

After watching that I tried it with mine, and I can boost in 4 LO but then again im tuned, so im sure it wont work stock. That as you said is the only reason the chevy "won" although I feel they should have done it in 4 hi, nobody tows in 4 Lo.

No one tows in four-low, but tractor pulling isn't a towing competition: It's a torque competition. Think of it less as 'Can the truck pull this locomotive?' and more like 'Can the truck pull this 60" stump out of the ground'. That's tractor pulling.

100% but all these units have enought Tq to move the sled in Hi gear. especially when one unit is handicapped in low range, should run it in high ( they way people drive it ) to even everything out.
 
According to these guys, pulling in high-range will tear up the gearbox:

 
Those pulls have less to do with engine power and more to do with tire contact patch and how/where you connect the line.

If you can easily spin your tires, that's wasted power. If your opponent is able to leverage the connecting line in a way that when power is applied it unweights your rear end, you will lose.

Brake boosting is not always a good thing. I have snapped my output shaft from the transmission doing just that.
