So i'm pretty much new to this whole diesel and Ford thing. I've been into drag racing for a long time but with yes, a Honda. I'll pause while you guys
. But I can say, I held my own and ran it like a pro.
On to the story. A buddy of mine has a 01 body style mustang mach1 and has talked alot of trash now that my last Honda I did has been sold and I bought my Excursion(01, 7.3, 4" turbo back, AEM brute force, Hypertech stage 3 programmer). So Finally I had enough and told him we could line it up after work.
There is a light not to far from our work and we just sat back and waited till it turned red. Flip to 4WD H, torque brake it till the truck wants to break free. Light turns green and this is where my question comes in. I watch the side lights for when they turn red and know that our light will go green in a second or two. I nail it right at green and and immediately jump out 3 car lengths on him, flip back to 2wd and and still out top of second gear, truck shifts to 3rd and he's still back there and then i shut her down as we come up on the next light and it's backed with cars.
So is it just that he doesn't know how to launch his car, or are these diesel trucks just that badass? Even if I shouldn't beat him by what anyone says here, the truck felt great and I enjoyed that, so i'm happy either way.
And before anyone says anything about street racing, sue me, i'm not gonna stop.
