Good point on the fan clutch - since it’s still based on the flow of silicone, I doubt you could turn it off that instantaneously.Exactly. Use it to help build boost before launch and cool during staging then cut to lowest lock up to race? It would be nice if it reacted that fast but unlikely. Maybe Leroy's electric clutch.
I have seen a few trucks with the lowered back end and don't really like the look. I saw one with lifted front, lowered rear, and sets the tailgate open 1/4. Kinda a poser look. Looks like it makes visibility poor. To each his own but not for me. I don't like my truck to sag even when loaded.
My understanding is aggressive open lugs are good for clearing heavy sticky mud. Kinda depends on your dirt. I would think you judge it by how much the tire loads up and ease of clean out???
How about your tie rods? Did you feel a lot of pull steering or bad wobble? I thought ya'll both took off pretty straight with a little squirm at first And how about your new rear end. Don't you like that little positive traction squirm in the back end but hooking with front to pull diagonal too.
I saw a newer Ford F250 this week on the road like that. I met it on the road and I thought he had been to the rock crusher and got a load of gravel. I looked back in my mirror I couldn't see a thing in the bed, thought to myself what's up with that is that the new style? I believe that is some of the boys that just like to have a Diesel truck that never works one, to me a truck like that is USELESS AS TITS ON A BOAR HOG...…...that look is called “the Carolina squat” by the young guys around here in South Carolina. I don’t like it either.
There is a guy that works where I do that has a dodge 2500 with a 6” lift in the front and the back is stock. I asked him about it a while back. I don’t see how he knows where he is going especially at night. It seems like the headlights would be aiming at the stars.
Next time I’m on the same job as him I’ll post a picture of how it looks.
