Real race against the twin turbo Cummins

Well, I wish I could say I got this real kill with my PSD, but I don't think that would happen

I was in my girlfriend's car today, and I saw the same twin turbo cummins...so I figured i'd see if he wanted a real race then...so I pulled over there and he looked at me, then turned around and started walking back to his truck...well I finally got him to turn around and talk and ask him if he wanted to try to race me...he asked me what motor it had, so I told him it had the 6.0L (It's got a 7.0L though )...and he was ready to race after that, we found the straightest road here that hardly anybody drives on...it's about 3 miles long...well this time he sent one of his friends down the road to check for cops first ...so we lined them up...he boosted up and we took off...after that, I was gone...haha...I don't know if he let off or what after I got about 6 or 7 lengths on him, but once I hit 140 and let off (because I was scared $hitless at that point ) he was probably 14 or 15 lengths back there...haha...so I think he did let off after he knew he was beat...and by the way, I was in 4th at the end of the race, I still had 2 gears left when I let off...that was the fastest I ever got that car up to...the guy in the Dodge just kept going after I pulled over to talk to him though...

I wish my PSD was as fast as that dammn Corvette...haha

LOL, well obviously you got the kill. If your driving a corvette with a 7.0 then its a Z06. 500 stock ponies and 3000lbs. 0-60 in 3.6!!

I have a hard time thinking that a cummins could touch any C6 Corvette. I have a C5 and have never been taken by any truck, tuned or not.

Regardless, anything that kills dodges is awesome. I am very jealous that your gf has a Z06!! Wicked kill.

yeah, it's a Z06...I think the Ron Fellows corvettes come with a 7.0L too...I'm jealous my g/f has a Z06 too...haha...because for the amount of money that thing cost, I could have one bada$$ PSD ...it's different getting in my truck and looking at the speedometer and seeing 100, then getting in the Corvette and seeing the speedometer go passed 200

In my truck, I think he'd smoke me ...but my truck is stock though...I dont know how fast his truck actually goes though because I passed him like he was sitting still...I should have stayed beside him to see how fast he could get his truck up to
