Will i be able to beat him????

This guy want to race me or pull against me. He said he'll race for slips, or money. he has a 1/2 ton dodge with a 318 engine and it is lifted a bit and that he has oversize tires. it is a manual and he is putting a race shifter in this week. Its also a 4x4. When i race him i'll have my tony Wildman chip by then. You think i can beat him? That all i know about his truck, if i find out anything new i'll let you know

IF he isn't lying, and still running a 5.2mag, then the magic 8ball points to yes. If he running a stroker motor and a Hughes kit... good luck.

Well if you feel like owning a Dodge then race him otherwise take his lunch money instead .......don't worry about the "race shifter" , unless he is a billy bad azz at shifting, even then the shifter is just too long.....why do you think guys in DHRA go for Autos instead

Thanks. I think i can, wow i would love to shut his *** up. i never talk to him. My buddy works with him. I told him to ask more about the engine. If he has a lot done to the engine then i'll just tell him to get the tow rope and hook them back to back and have a tug a war. He said he'll kick my *** at that too. And how does he figure that? I'll get you posted

He should be okay.....I had a 2001 Dodge 4x4 1500 with 35's, lift, exhaust, CAI, programmer, gears, Hughes Tranny with Artcarr shifter, in high school and I tried to pick on 7.3's all the time and there was big difference in stock 7.3s and chipped 7.3s as I found out

He'll be able to pull you .......ask when you done drag racing him, if you should go get a trailer and that way you pull him across the finish line faster

put it on your street race tune, because you dont need to worry about egts. put your truck in 4x4 low, and maybe d, or 2 depeneds. and then hold the brake, let him start and then pull his traction away from him and your off.... but tug a war doesnt prove much, tell him to take it to the dirt and hook a sled.
