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.

I thought it was hilarious because there were a few cummins guys around saying how nasty cummins are and how they are gonna smoke everything they run, and I just laughed at them and said maybe next time they'll get a real truck like a ford.

duramax can be straight FAST (because they are gutted out light-weights, of course..)

I also saw a long bed single cab 7.3 OBS powerstroke run against a duramax that was girl driven and the 7.3 surprisingly held the dmax off until the very end of the track. I couldn't believe it.

I get the whole thrill of feeling the power when you mash the throttle and all but what I don't get is taking these pigs to a track and thinking you are going to beat a car that is 1/4 to 1/3 the weight of your hog. I mean, its cool and all to have a fast truck but how many fast cars do you actually smoke? My guess would be few to none. If that's the case then is it thrilling to race a stock ricer with a fart can on the back? I read recently about somebody's truck running a 12-9 and I'm guessing that is a 1/4 mile run which is pretty damn respectable. How many have a truck that is actually that capable? Maybe I'm just turning in to an old curmudgeon. I have only ever used my truck to haul, tow and and get me off the pavement.

I sure the hell dont race my truck.. but both of those cummins were racing suv's. There were some pretty darn quick trucks, but I'm more interested in how well a truck can tow not how fast it is.

the thing is, the new hot rod world has become very accepting of turbodiesel pickups. they are downright capable, or some of them are. the 7.3s and older cummins take a bit to make power, but these things are new age hot rods and ppeople like them so much because they are capable of outrunning cars despite the weight. the 6.4s are absolute MONSTERS with a tune and exhaust and intake. duramaxes are very capable motors as well, and so are common rail cummins trucks. they are all capable of big power and huge torque and they really can hang with the cars and thats what the appeal is in running them at the track

A ccsb srw 6.4 (8000#+/-) can run right around a 13-13.3 sec 1/4 mile with basic mods and a good program. That's sports car fast. Get a reg cab and you can probably break under 13. they are seeing trucks put down 600hp at the wheels on dynos.
