A kill compliments of all of you

I pull into Home Depot's parking lot last night about 5 minutes before they close. I get to the door and its locked. Get back to my truck pissed off and stand on the throttle as I drive by the doors. A little coal and tire smoke and I head toward the exit. A couple of ricers come flying through the lot and flag me to stop. They didn't want to race. They wanted to see the truck and the engine. One of the kids said to the other that you never want to race a diesel if you see them smoke. He told his buddy you would lose to them every time. I said the lots empty do you want to line up three across and run for fun. Thay said no. I am not that modded but guess they didn't know that.

I was suprised that lower 20 somethings would show respect and not even try. There are some real fast deisel trucks running around this area. Maybe they got a hold of the ricer's.

Haha there are alot of lower 20 somethings on this site so it isnt all that surprising. More and more people are learning the wrath of these 7500lb behemoths.

Good rule of thumb for them I like that "never race a diesel if they smoke" Wonder if they know about all the tuning and switching we can do. Like Econo tune til they roll up and push a button for some insane-o smoke out death tune.

"Brand Newish" Truck: 02 Chevy S10 2.2L 5sp. Reg cab 4x2. Badass custom made shifter, foglights, 20% tint, AVS Vent-shades, Stock Intake mods, Electric Fan conversion .
~ 95k miles.

LOL, for real! reminds me of last night. A couple of camaros thought they could pick on my buddy in his Talon as we were just cruisin down to walmart. After they revved at him and a short sprint, i flipped into stage 3 and blew by my buddy right up next to the cammies. Layed out some coal a bit. As we cruised down a bit more they caught up again and lined up next to me. i thought they were gonna go but they were simply checkin out the truck. Finally at the light the guy asks what i got? I ask him if he wants to go but he said he lost to a "smoker"(his words) ealier that day, HAHAA! So we just cruised up til we got to walmart.

Funny thing we get to walmrt and my bud is like "dude you coulda told me you were gonna do that, I had my windows down!"

What about the ricers who puff smoke? I think it's cute when I see a 4 banger with large injectors dumping fuel. I immediately say "Awww, that's cute. What will it be when she grows up?"

That will usually bait them out.


Actually, I've been saying that to a lot of diesel around here.
