oops killed a 250

this is a little lengthy. i was headed toward the freeway and saw a kid in a 250 blowin smoke all over the place, so i caught up to him but couldn't passim b4 we got on the freeway, we both very quickly got up to 90 mph but then slowed to 75. I pulled up beside him and he counted down from 3. i mashed it and pulled away from him fairly fast. mind u his truck had 4 inch exhaust and i knew it was chipped. i slowed back down and let him catch me, he yelled to get off the freeway and race from stop. so we did. i let him count down again and we were off i thought he had me at first cuz he was pullin away, but as soon as i hit 3rd gear i blew past him and left him im the smoke about 7 car lengths by the finish line which was first to 75 mph. i pulled in to a parking lot and acks him what hes got, he said edge w/att intake and exhaust.... my truck is the same year, same cab config. and i have only edge w/att and exhaust no intake. yet i was able to play around with him on the freeway and after 3rd gear on the street... sounds weird. but it was awesome! my first official kill.

Good one. I've always thought that the engineers are fairly sharp and it's hard to improve an engine without commiting to changing almost everything from the intake to the exhaust. I've seen people do it with hotrods a lot. Too much carb, too big of a cam, too large header downtubes, etc. Looks like you got just the right setup for everything to compliment each other for one quick package.

Driver error on your opponents part. But then again you encouraged the kid to learn how to drive a Mans truck.

To trucks equally matched that is driver error. It is still a kill, how ever the other guy had to screw up somewhere and if I was the other guy I would tuck tail and go hide until I knew how to drive my truck.

I would agree if the kid got left from the start when they launched from a dead stop. But, he actually was winning until stroker27 caught up and passed him in third gear. Only way that could happen is if he let up or, strokers truck was quicker on top. Who knows?

Could've been Auto vs. Manual trans and the kid just wasn't good at shifting
