First kill

Well I know I can't compete with you guys since I don't have propane or NX2 (we know who you are...Allen) but this felt good for a stocker.
I was going to work last night through town and some older kids either borrowed or owned a Dodge charger with a Hemi. I watched them rabbit from light to light and "managed" to work my way next to them. At the light I held the brake and was running about 20 psi on boost and let all hell loose at the green light. Well I could make out his lights through all the smoke, but it looked like he was driving in a fog bank. Their mouths were wide open and really wouldn't look up at me after that. What a way to start a work night. Nothing like putting a 8500 lb truck up against a car and walking away.
Now I have an itch for a programmer, hmmm, how to bring this one up to the wife?
Later,

That's funny!!! Because I did own a Dodge Charger R/T with the HEMI, I had a K&N filter and a Flowmaster on it and I could run a 9.3 with me driving at my local 1/8th mile track. I took my truck to the same track last night and I once again was driving and my truck will run a 9.3 also EXACTLY THE SAME AS THE CHARGER. Maybe those kids didn't kn ow how to drive because that 4000 lb car should've been faster than your bone stock truck.

Ok, newbie here.

I've never thought of diesel trucks as something that was quick off the line.

And I haven't tested my stock '04 F250 ... yet.

Are these big boys naturally quick?

Have I been missing out on somethin' here?

Thanks,

WM

I think I'll try that one on her. I figured they should have walked all over me, but they lost none the less. Still felt good to do it.

They're really quick off the line if you build up some boost before you launch
