Lighting

Well went up against a chipped lighting rolling at 15mph. I guess I did pretty good I was two legths behind him. He says he runs like a low 12's. So what do I have to do to beat him

Well against him from a boosted launch and the race should be interesting.....but to run low 12's were are talking some pretty major mods....head studs, NOS, tranny, injectors, maybe meth....you should talk to DKR he has just broke into the 12 in the last couple months

If he is in the low 12's he's probably close to the hp limits of his stock rods. So do nothing to your truck and just wait till a cold winter morning and there's a good chance he'll beat himself with a hole in his block.
