My Rant Thread! Sorry need to let this out somewhere.

I am from NC and lord knows how many diesel trucks are in this state..but one thing I am really sick and tired of is these half arse 18 wheeler wannabes that throw out the black smoke when I am behind you ...do you people even care when theres someone behind you? I'm not saying all of you are bad because I like the engineering that went into building a diesel , I am just referring to the posers that blow out the black smoke for crap sake give it a rest or at least get stacks so that way it will blow vertically and not backwards too other drivers like me ...ok I am done ...(this is only done because it has to be said I have almost crashed from being blinded by this crap) u all know who I am talking about too...so don't act like you haven't done it...and no I'm not some 13 year old just ranting I am 26 and don't even be like (how old are you bla bla bla) the end

Do you have a truck yourself? Did you get the site address from somone blowing smoke on you whom had a sticker from the site?

Do you drive a prius? That could be the main cause of being smoked often.

You going to answer my other question? Did you get the site address from somone with a sticker? Do you personally know the person? By how you stated "you know who you are" makes it sound like you know who the person is, and should take it up with them, VS coming onto a site where everyone is going to likely agree with the side of the guy with the truck.

I can think of so many things to say right now, both rude, and polite; assuming, and factual.

Well, some trucks cant help it. Depending on the year and make of trucks, when you turn up a mechanically injected engine, it can be hard to keep the smoke down in certain driving conditions. Now a brand new truck is different. Some people just like to make smoke.

On the other hand, people towing, or hauling a load in the bed, smoke comes from the engine being under load. It happens.

Were you driving closely behind the person? I know for a FACT I can and will blow smoke on anyone who tailgates me, or pulls up too close to me at a stoplight. Go ahead, call me names, think I am a bad person. I actually think it gets people thinking a little bit on their bad driving habits.

Good point Jeremy, if a truck is loaded with a poorly match or failing turbo it will smoke like a freight train Unintentionally

I can't tell you how much it pisses me off when some moron tailgates me. You don't want black smoke in yer face... don't tailgate. Most people on here don't just blow smoke at randoms for the joy of it. Yeah, i admit, a bunch of us tear around blowin' smoke in PA, but we never do it unless we are tailgated, cut off, flipped off, or in an open area and we are playing around (without afflicting others).

And i agree with NukleusX... just because ya got smoke blown on ya doesn't mean that it was from someone on here.
