Some kids borrowin their momma's car..

05ish pontiac GTP or whatever. I've driven them, they are fast. I knew I wasn't going to win but they were antsy to race.

Light turned green.. we hit the go pedal and he got about a carlength ahead... and by the time we hit 60 we had both let off...

I shoulda powerbraked and built some boost for a better launch but i wasn't thinking lol!!! He beat me off the line right away and stayed about a car ahead the whole time.

I had a race with one of those to several weeks back in my dodge. He kept hanging with me, obviously had seen me getting on it a few times and I realized he wanted to see what I had. From about a 35 mph roll I downshifted and he heard the downshift and took off and got ahead by about a car. My turbo kicked in and I caught him pretty quick, eventually beating him by a little less than two cars...er, trucks. We back off around 85 or 90. I can't stand those stinkin' gtp's....

hey 99 stroker

Was your 7.3 a manual? IF not, is your new dodge (back when it was stock) faster then your ford (when it was stock)? What about after the chip/intake/exhaust.

My stroker was an automatic. I ran my stroker a lot on the TS chip stock setting a lot before I sold it to avoid any possible risk of the extra power breaking or burnin somethin up right before a sale. When it was stock, it was pretty slow. It wouldn't even downshift to second when I hammered it from a roll, it'd just stay in third and poop along and the turbo wasn't as loud or didn't get as loud as quick. My new dodge did feel quicker stock vs. my stock ford but not by a decent margin. After chips I would say by feel that the margin would be less, but my dodge still feels faster. In my stroker I ran my buddy in his 04 Ranger with 4.6l manual and I could get him by about a truck or so up to 70. I never ran my stroker in the 1/4 but he ran his ranger and got a 16.3 or 5.....something like that...the best I got so far in my dodge was a 15.7, which was in "performance" mode on my chip. I was also still getting used to the clutch, and the dodge lift pump doesn't give me the fuel I want for hard launches....so I lose power bigtime as the fuel rail runs dry at the top of 2nd right when i'm shifting into 3rd. I know how to shift it a lot quicker now, as well as slipping the clutch to build boost and launching in 4wd...plus I have an "extreme" setting on my chip to go up to, but it's not reccommended on a stock clutch which I still have. I estimate as long as the clutch did hold, I got a good launch and stepped up to the extreme setting I could probably run a low 15. I'm looking at clutches and aftermarket lift pumps for next mods. I guess I gave you a large answer to a small question but anywho....
