I give credit where credit is due. Last night I was cruisin back to the casa and I saw a Duramax up ahead blowin smoke every where. I thought lets see if he wants to run. Well after the little bit of construction we went through he jumped in the left lane and I just crept up. When I got to the mid part of his bed I see him jump on it and I do the same. I was in a bad spot on my gears it took a sec to upshift but I caught up with him quick and actually gained on him just a touch then at 60ish mph he started walking away from me. I backed out and came up next to him at the light and gave him a thumbs up. That truck ran really well.
If we had raced from a dead stop I might have had him till 60 or so but he just walked away at the higher speeds.


I was very impressed and jealous at the same time.

First time I've seen that truck around town. I might get him in the future with 5K worth of work done. Which I am not planning on doing. hahaha

It makes a big difference in what SCT tune is used. I noticed with Elites tune the truck pulls harder at 60-70MPH it's a lot to do with the tranny tuning.

I run mid 13's and I know there are DMX's out there that will wax me good I just havn't found one on the street yet LOL

Always being a Ford man myself this is my first Chevy truck and diesel. I am very happy and impressed. The dmax is very fast. My poor old F250 is just collecting dust now.
