Why do the HEMI Boys even bother?

So I was setting at a light heading home from my parent house and this regular cab long bed dodge half ton takes off at the green light... so I get into it a little bit get back to even with him. At the next light he was revving his engine and trying to get my attention... So when the light turns green I stomp on it, tires spin a little but I throttled it til I got traction and took off, he obviously got a small jump on me because I didn't drop it into 4x4, but after that he was gone WAAAAYYYYY behind my bumper, of course it was hard to see him through the smoke... I think I saw him coughing a little bit though...

Anyways, message to the HEMI fan boys.... Just keep trying, you only look worse...

They think the almighty hemi can do anything when in reality, it's no better than any other gas motor, it just has a cool name

My wife's Hemi Magnums beat the living crap out of my truck when we ran.
Maybe I should get a 6.0
Nice kill

Dude... i have a single cab, and was racing a crewcab 2012 hemi truck. That thing was quick, he got me off the line by at least a truck length but i caught up to him and passed him at bout 80mph before i had to let off.

I ran a hemi the other night, and ironically it was right after going to see Jon Reep. I couldn't resist.
