Cummins vs duramax vs powerstroke.....

Not much of a story but funny to me none the less.


We went out to ellenboro saterday, so we decided to go to deep creek friday and spend the night then head out to the track the next morning. I was following my friend in his dodge because i didnt know where his cabin was so we were playing off and on. Well on the way up 68 just past cumberland we come up to a duramax, well this guy see's us and rides past me and gets beside the dodge, so my friend decides to school him. They both take off and my friend is blacking out the highway and pulls him hard all the way up the mountain.

Its over right? no. i pull back in behind my friend and were going down the mountain and this dude pulls up beside me and grins at me (Like my truck wasnt worth the effort) and pulls back up to my friend and then floors it.... were going down the mountain so we just let him go. We catch back up to him going up the mountain and theres a repeat performance. Friend walks him by several truck.

Over finnaly, no. Here he comes again, well this time im tired of watching, they get side by side as they start up the moutain and they floor it, so i floor it and i shoot into the slow lane and passed them at about 105mph got in front of them and my tranny puked on there windshields I ended up getting ahead of them by a good distance. my friend calls me laughing and mentions how i owned them and that my torq**** is a torq**** lol.

So, proud of the spanking, i cut back in line and follow on. Well this idiot in the duramax comes flying up and gets stuck behind us and hits a exit ramp, flys past a tractor trailer and damn near hits the guard rail to get by my friend again...... we were like wtf is this ahole doing. He takes off like a raging retard and nearly hits several people. We backed off and set cruise control to 85mph and just rolled on. We ended up passing him again several times only to repeat.

I hope darwin steps in with this moron before he takes someone else out.

Sounds like this guy was a real *** hat!

Great story. Always nice to see the "almighty" D-Max get walked.

i havnt even looked at the trans yet, my friend radio'd me and said that i shot trans fluid straight down as if it squeezed out between the seals. I drove about 300 miles since then and no issues. I did notice that the degas bottle is about empty lol. It has drove fine since then, i plan on looking at it tonight, hopefully the storms stay away long enough.

Hmm maybe it was just a little coolant leaking out...not tranny fluid.

Good job, glad the truck is running good.

I wish my run in with a CTD had the same results last weekend. I could pull away for alil bit when we would first take off, but he would pull me in after I hit 70+.
