I love watching Ram trucks do burnouts and I love watching Cummins Turbo Diesel engine spew smoke so when I came across this clip showing an early 3rd gen Ram 2500, I knew that it was destined to be featured on Black Friday. This blacked out 3rd gen CTD Ram is taking part in a burnout competition and it appears as though they have fitted up a set of old worn tires so get as much smoke as possible. They succeeded.
The video starts off with this Cummins Ram rollin a little coal followed by a hefty dose of gray tire smoke. After the first few seconds of the burnout, this Ram really gets the tires smoking hard – creating a cloud of tire smoke with a stream of black diesel smoke shooting from the rear of the cloud. Per normal burnout contest rules, this Ram roasts the rears for about 30 seconds and towards the end, the cameraman pans to the left to show the incredible amount of smoke engulfing the crowd.
While the result of this gigantic burnout probably wasn’t much fun for the folks in the crowd, this Cummins Ram burnout is definitely well worth a featured spot here on DodgeForum. Crank up your speakers and enjoy!
