Another 'fast' D-Max goes bye bye!
I posted this elsewhere but figured I'd repost here:
I WORKED some youngins last week in a tuned D-max. (05-07 I think) I had heard this truck was 'fast' though a friend of my daughters and I told him to let his friend know I was willing to play if he saw me. Sure enough a week or so later they see me. This truck came right up and was riding my a$$ extremely close, before I realized who it was. I clicked up to the Hot damn tune and gave him just a tiny poof. We were already going almost 40 in a 35, but about 1/4 up the road it goes into 4 lanes and 55 then 65. Just as the new lane started I put my blinker on to signal the lane change and I saw his poof and heard him get on it. When his front tire was even with my rear bumper I stomped on it! I was in (4th w/TCL) He just barely pulled even and I was pulling away until there was about a full car length gap between us. Due to a known speed trap up ahead we both slowed to acceptable speeds and are window to window. Once it was clear, I give them the nod and went on his movement about the same time ... I wasn't even close!! Being a Smart A$$ I waved bye bye to them as the ol lifted F-450 rolled on away with an old man driving and just a touch of smoke out the back. I put some distance on them (actually lots!) pretty quickly and slowed back to 'normal' speeds. When they pulled back up they both gave me the thumbs up waved eased on. Later this 'friend' said the D-Max owners version of this story a bit different. His was something like this: The first time he says that he got the jump on me and beat me on the bottom (remember I waited) and the second time he went into limp mode! I told this friend, to make sure my reply gets back to him: "LOL BUMMER! That must really suck!!"
