My guess is, getting rid of the old to make room for the new.

The guys who own the cummin killer are going back to 2.8 so they don't have to drive so much. Askin $105,000.00 not a bad price for the work done. Haven't talked to the other guys.

Gainer wants to build a bigger truck, Wes wants to go back to 2.8, I think Jarred wants to spend more time with the family. Sled pulling is very time consuming if you do it week after week, even when you dont break, your always wanting to do something different to the truck during the week to try it the next weekend. I dont have kids, or a wife.. at this moment, just a very understanding girlfriend. But if i did have kids, i could see where it would get old.. and be very rough on a marriage... But that 15 seconds down the track is such a rush!

I didn't think I would ever say this at the ripe age of 25, but this has ended my 2nd sucessful year of pulling and I can already see why people quit. It takes time and tons of it even if you have a setup that beats the comp. week after week.

I spend 3 hours getting everything around to pull, I have a friend usually pull me there. Spend 15 secs going down the track, and then load it up usually after midnight at the earliest when I get home. I get up sunday, go to church, and come home and put my truck back together so I can drive it monday. Then I am wore out, so I go to bed early. Then I go to work and work as fast and efficient as I can, and get all of the hours in I can, so I can spend that little extra on the truck.

It really does get old.

I think having your sled pulling / drag racing truck, also your DD, burns some people out Not the guys listed above, as those trucks are not there DD but for the average joes like myself it gets old real quick transforming the truck from pulling to drag racing and then trying to drive it come monday to work Its not bad when things are not breaking but it seems like my truck spends more time broke then anything else these day's.. Thankfully this is the last season my toy truck will be the same as my DD

Could you guys imagine how much money you'd have if you didnt pull? Damn I can imagine thats expensive as hell but I completely understand why you do it. I would too if I wasnt married, had a house, a business, and 4 other trucks

I am sure the guys with the luxury of spending huge amounts on pulling trucks are also financially inclined to do so Money is the easy part, you can always make more IMHO...

Was that a serious post? It has since been removed from Gainer's thread.
