    Well I when up to Greeley this weekend and caught a nasty little bug. I think it was called truck pulling. Man what fun that looks like it would be. I have not been to a truck pull in 10 years and man I had a great time. Oh it helps to know some of the people pulling. A friend of the family has a 72 Chevy truck with a 454 and dana 60 front and Eaton rearend and he took second. Get this, he is running a 700r4 tranny in it and it works great. The engine is has a hydraulic roller cam, merlin oval port heads with around 10to1. He thinks it is running around 500hp or so. He thought the sled wieghed around 30,000lbs and he did a full pull with it all thru a 700r4 tranny. I would never thought that tranny would hold up. I will let everyone now when the next truck pulls are if you guys are interested.
