Kill or be killed?

Some of you folks know I'm a newby to this whole PSD thing and I'm having a blast reading your posts and asking questions. Ya'll have been really helpful right from the get go. I take a sense of pride knowing that me/we own the most powerful trucks on/off the road, which leads me to this question. Is it possible to be the fastest and most powerful? The kill stories I read all seem centered around what happens off the line. What would happen to the faster minivans, Accords, Tundra's, etc. if we participated in a sort of tug of war with them? I think we know the answer to that question. Maybe I'm too new (or too old at 44) to understand, but to me I'll leave the 1/4 mile times to the cars, suv's, etc. built for it and laugh at them as I pass them on uphill grades pulling a 12,000 lb. 5th wheel.

Sounds like a plan. It is still fun to show up a civic with an 8000lb truck

Its even more fun to show up a civic when you are pulling a 3000lb trailer, then ask them if they want to load their civic on the trailer as they'd get to their destination faster! They dont seem to like that question! LMAO!

Yah we can tow more then the cars they know that but what they dont know is alot of us are WAY faster then them too and it fun to catch them and beat them at the one thing they think they have the advantage at.
