Saw 2 cummins get spanked at the track yesterday... this ones good!
Alright guys funny story here. I've been a diesel guy for years, and abotu a year ago i got my cousin into diesels. He used to be a chevy fan, and wanted a duramax until he realized they use isuzu motors. That set him off and turned him away from chevy. At the time, I had a 12v cummins 5spd dually that I turned up. I let him test drive it, and he was hooked. He bought a dump bed cummins.
Well, he turned the cummins up and runs it real hot even w/out a load, and one day we swapped trucks for a few hours, so he was driving my lifted stock f250 w/ intake/exhaust and thats it, and I was driving his hot cummins. We would race around a little bit, and when I told him after that I had to floor his truck everywhere to keep up with him in my powerstroke, he wasn't too happy... even when just putting around town I had to floor it as he was leaving me behind. Since that day, he's been looking for a new powerstroke or a nice used one.
Yesterday we go to lancaster motor speedway. There's a silver 12v cummins, 5spd, big stacks, rolling smoke everywhere, and HUGE yellow ladder bars on both sides of the truck. Turns out, he knows the guy and its a pretty fast truck.
so we're wathing the races, and his buddies silver cummins pulls up. Rolling smoke everywhere, the drivers smiling, reving etc... and a honda lines up next to it.
... a stock older maroon Honda ridgeline.
So the tree strikes down and hits green. The Ridgeline got the jump on the guy.. my cousins waiting in anticipation for the cummins to finally spool it's turbo and disperse all of it's barelling smoke. Finally, it happens...
the maroon ridgeline crosses the finish line, and a few seconds later (we're talking a 1/8 mile track here...) the cummins comes across. I'm laughing, my cousin is crying.
Few minutes later, the same truck comes up to race again. I'd try making the story all suspenseful and sweet, but I wont. The cummins got his *** beat again.
the third story... a 24v 5spd cummins. It's got a 10" (literally...) stack coming out directly in front of his passenger side rear tire. Super nice looking truck. He's at the tree, barelling smoke also. reving up.. ready to go.
Alongside him comes a '99ish Jeep Cherokee. Stock. Well as much as I'd like to make this story exciting as well, I'll keep it short and sweet. The 24v cummins starts barelling smoke down the track, the gay *** stock cherokee puts the spank on the cummins big time.
This happens twice.. two races between these two. Cummins keeps losing. My cousin looked like he could walk over and grab his title to his cummins and sell it on the spot.
Hope you guys laugh nearly as much as i did when at the track.
