I just love the sound of high performance Chevy engines!

It's breeding,training...and something unknown.

Looks like you have a fun time, and I agree about hearing the sound of that engine...

Re: when we aren't hunting, it's mud racing trucks.

Looks like a very cool hobby.

Educate me, I believe the way they judge the winner in what you do is buy who goes the farthest....????
If that is the case, what would be the difference ......with the same truck.....between a 350 and your 496 as far as distance, and why ?
I very much get the difference in horsepower and torque, just looking for the reason that works in your sport.

Thanks///

Re: when we aren't hunting, it's mud racing trucks.

It is timed if you run the full pit. If you don't get a full pass it then goes on distance and time to get that far.

Most pits around are full pass with most trucks. Only the slower trucks may not make it. The county fairs that have them usually make the pits tough so the show is better but it will still end up drag racing for the fastest time.

Re: when we aren't hunting, it's mud racing trucks.

I didn't realize it was also a timed event, which explains the need for the bigger HP, to turn faster wheel speeds.
Looks like fun, thanks for the explanation.

Does your 496 run on gas or alcohol ?
