Didn't see that comming did you?

This is by no means a brand bash, a stock D-max would destroy a stock 7.3 PSD any day of the week...

Rolling up to a light tonight rolling to a stop at about 5-10 mph, I notice I'm about dead even with a C-2500 D-max who wanted to play a little, we had been : : back an forth over the last 3/4 mile some playful poking the throttle going through traffic. well, we get to the red light about to turn green, it goes green, I saw him mat it and start to pull ahead, I was like :umno: he had maybe a 3-5mph advantage on the roll-n-go. I lay into it and we race to about 60-65 or so (in a 45)

Him being mostly stock from what I could tell, I was all over him, I mean it wasen't even close I felt like I was passing my old man in his 6.0. I'm sure he got a kick out of it! :


I saw him pull off the road, like I normally do when I'm feeling like I don't want to face him at the next light. Funny part is, that the lot he pulled into, was the local "Alternative-lifestyle Porn Shop" I just about died laughing. :roflmao:

There are many vehicles that would destroy a stock 7.3L. I can confirm this. The on-ramp to the highway each day is always interesting without a chip installed. Thankfully my X outweighs most other vehicles so if I can't out-accelerate, physics comes into play and they make room.

I'd love to try ANY traffic in a ladder truck. I've always wanted to be a firefighter just so I could drive the trucks.

hehehe, that bit about pulling into the porn shop is hillarious. Its kinda entertaining when you run into someone that wants to play and then realizes they bit off more than can chew. I rolled up next to a PS once and he tried to bait me(and he didnt have to try hard ) but traffic was pretty tight. He kept puffing smoke and I pretty much remained smoke free but did roll on it a bit when he did so I think he though I just had exhaust :evil: Traffic was real heavy and I got board so I rolled up a few carlenghts ahead of him, let boost drop and just rolled(enough to keep it from downshifting) on it with the converter locked and belched pretty good. He didnt want to play after that :shrug:

I hate it when people see you turn on your signal waiting for traffic to clear and a gap to emerge and when a gap comes up they try to close it and block you out. I learned that in a dump you just start coming over slowly anyway pretending not to see em and they **** out and let you in. I think its called right of way by tonnage or something like that The cool man blinky lights would probably help though :HappyMugs
