Got Killed

I was returning to my office, on a two lane hwy, started coming up behind this A$$ in a 2500 bowtie that was blowing smoke every where. I roll past him and it was cool for a couple miles. Then came upon a red light, the last one before my exit. I was 1/2mile out when I saw it turn to yellow, the bowtie was bout 1/2 mile behind me, I should've gone full throttle to the light and tried to build up what boost I could, but instead started slowing down, I already had it in 4hi(like it really mattered). He came up fast to get alongside of me, and he was still rolling a bit when we hit the light, I had to stop.
Light turned green and I'm sure it must've turned to midnight for the cars behind us, I never looked back. I think I hung with him for 2-3 seconds, but then he was gone like a rocket ship, I was at 80 and he must've been pushing 110 because he was gone. He obviously had a weight advantage, my 350 at the scales is 9300, but for the amount of smoke he was blowing he must've had something other than a PPE hot tune.

I kinda knew from the start I was gonna lose, but didn't hurt to try. I got off on my exit, he kept going. If I do happen to see him at a restaurant r parts store, I'll have to give him congrats and find out what he's running.

Now today wasn't a total loss I did get kinda a kill on the way home. Not something you see everyday, a diesel Rabbit. Haven't seen one in a decade, this thing was chugging like a coal train up this mountain climb. I thought it was a TT, I followed the trail for a mile, but coming down the other side, no TT or pickup in site, just this silver(I think) VW Rabbit blowing coal. The back hatch and bumper were black from the coal. He started to speed up blowing coal on me, I was like not happening, got right up behind him and went around him drowning him in a cloud. I don't condone smoking, unless someone has done it to you.

Wow 176 views and not a single comment.

Honestly I expected at least some comments.

I'd like to see a 6.4 that weights above 9grand that can beat a tuned Chevy with a third less weight. I don't think it's possible. The weight alone is a stopper.

Like Ohsix6Oh said above you win some and you lose some. Your truck is about mine in the only performance mods I have is a livewire ts. The Chevy can make more power cheaper than we in the PSD's can.

Ps. Good kill on the rabbit

Oh I remember bugs bunny and elmer fudd, I'm not that young. Those rabbits though are starting to pop up more now, since I've seen 2 more, both blowing smoke. Do they get really good miles?

7.9 in the 1/8 is pretty good, whats his 1/4 time though? Most tracks I've been to are 1/4 tracks. My 6.0 F250 had a 15.2 1/4 time @ 92mph. Haven't had a chance to take the F350down the strip yet

Well there's a reason Dodge and GM trucks dominate at the drag strip and sled pulls. The engines are just built better and the aftermarket supports them.

I do sled pulling, with a tractor, and my observation is that most of the fords are in the pits hooked to trailers towing, while the chevy and dodge guys drive theirs in empty to pull them, so I guess the the others are toys while the fords are working.

Yeah Fords we're definitely built to work, and they do work hard.
