A little background here.
Small town of 5400, St.Paul, Alberta and its the rodeo finals weekend. Needless to say there are lots of people and lots of diesels around town. I'm just killing time cruisin' the main drag looking at all of the nice trucks and cars. I'm not rollin' coal or hitting the skinny pedal off the lights...just crusin.
I see this white chevy dually driving like an idiot behind me. There is me in the left lane and a slow minivan in the right, I see him gunning it to try to slip in the opening between us. So I hit the throttle a bit to close the gap, apparently I hit it hard enough to give a little smoke. Then I slowed right down to the speed of the minivan to piss him off 35kph for a bit. Then the minvan turned right and the next light turns red.
It's a 16-17 punk kid driving his dads dually and its full of girls. The wife looks at me and says, "smoke that little sh&^".
She rolls down the window and I ask him, "so your truck is pretty fast eh?".
He replies, "faster than yours!".
I see the other light turning yellow already, I don't have enough time to get the turbo up as much as I wanted. Light turns green, first 20 yards he gets his door to my front wheel. Then the Ex took off!!! I had him beat by 2 lengths before he finally let off! The best part was right as I was pulling even with him the wife is waving saying, "see ya later punk!" and then that's when we really launched!
Edit...I had my Innovative Extreme Street file running at the time
