LOL was out toying around with nothing to do the other day and happened to be on the "strip" when a white dually cummins goes flyin by me at an intersection....kept rolllin coal all over me and i just let it be till i got a break in traffic, ended up goin down a side road, blew a little more on me, finally got a clear road ahead, got beside em, let him roll first, and i just a started walkin! :Thumbup: turned around to go back to the strip and he comes up beside me at a light and says "man, what all you got done to that thing..?" i said just a tuner..:Thumbup: then tries to race me from a dig (6sp, whatta idiot!) well i was in the right lane and ended up hittin snow and roastin tire registerin 90, look over and he has total traction slammin through the gears sittin dead even beside me...i let off and was only goin like 40 :damnit

so then i get beside a guy that knows the other one sayin i barely beat him...wanting to race me for $500....guy has run at the local track and i knew what he was running (8.85-9.10) so i toy with him a little, stop at a parkin lot to BS and still wantin to race me for $$...so i asked what his truck runs and plays dumb so i told em ive seen it run and that i will race him, beat him, but i wont take any money...then say the black beauty runs 8.30s :woot: shut him up quick! :nunu:

Nice...you need to learn how to use that 4wd. LOL
i usually dont on the street...its more fun to roast tire beside someone and then catch and walk away from em....also i think i have a vacuum leak so unless the hubs are locked it wont stay in 4x4...always locker in at the track tho! :Thumbup:

Great Job :Thumbup:

One night i got passed by a couple of teenagers in a Duramax. Don't know what it had done to it except exhaust. Anyways some how managed to weave in and out of traffic and get up beside them at a red light. (Oh those precious moments) We'll he knew what was up when i pulled up beside him nothing even had to be said. When the light turned green I got in it a good bit but not all the way I was in 2wd and spun through 1st, 2nd and 3rd before I finally got traction and even with all that he never pulled ahead of me by an inch. Well when I did start hooking well it was pretty bad. A few lights up they pulled up beside me and I've never seen a couple of guys more happy to get blown away than they were there eyes were the size of saucers. They were laughing saying man you got it don't you. I replied "I try".

I ran a charger srt-8. I beat it, but it was a street run and I did use a 4wd launch. If you run it 4wd launch it...they are fast cars.

If you run him in 4wd on the street you'll kill him out of the hole big time. They are stout cars, but that's their downfall on the street.

I know I have seen SRT-8's at the track pull very low 13's. Like 13.2 and lower. That's in stock form.

So yes, they are faster than your regular run of the mill Mustang Gt or Camaro.

I wish I was close to that...that would be sweet. I would like to run ripmf as well. It would be a good race to because by then I'll have the injectors, pump, and tranny in the truck.
