I's be gotten whooped

Yep, as much as I hate to say it, guy in a dodge whooped me. Truck is back to stock until I decide on keeping it or trading it in. Anyway, I'm coming home down sunrise blvd, which is a LONG straight away. When a guy in a dodge dually pulls next to me. I hear him revving it, straight piped. I look over, and it looks like a damn F-16 with all those gauges lit up. He hammers it and a car jumps in front of him. Now I'm laughing at him. We come to a stoplight, there's a truck ahead of me, and the dodge, whose also towing an empty flatbed trailer is the first car in the lane. Light changes he hammers it and he's off. I follow in suit and swoop in behind him. Still more traffic. Next light, things have changed, I'm first in the lane and he's stuck behind a car. Green comes and I'm off. Wind up to about 75 and keep it there and here comes that dodge haulin' azz. When he gets to within a car length I floor it, but he's already past me by that time. I'm slowly gaining on him, he slows to around 70, I honk and give him a flyby, he honks and waves and makes his turn. Wasn't pissed that I lost, but had the guy been a ****...that would have irked me.

Sounds to me like he just had momentum on you. It takes a huge amount of HP to catch someone that is passing you. Find him a again and take it to the track where it is safe..
