Cummins or Goin'?
More like goin'. I like the cummins turbo diesel, and this post is not to bash any of them. But I smoked one tonight in my '99 PSD. The victim was an '03 or newer Dodge quad cab dually(great 'cause mine is a dually) with of course the HO cummins diesel. I was actually coming through an intersection going to turn left, and saw some over cab lights coming at me, I knew it had to be a heavy duty truck. I saw his opposite blinker come on and he was coming my way. I waited to see what kind of truck it was and if it had the standard visual upgrade(exhaust). It did. Great I thought we pulled up to a light, him in the far left me far right. He had no idea what I had in mind, so I romped it for a few seconds leaving everyone in a cloud of smoke to give him a clue. I see him accelerate towards me and I ease it up a little. I ended up getting stuck behind a car and he passed me in the middle lane and stopped at the light. I moved over right behind him. Light turns green he is on smoke everywhere, turns out he was driving a manual tranny. I wait about a second or two so I don't rear end him, then I give all my trucks got. creeped up on him and went around him on the left, all while he was wide open. All that was behind us was a full dark cumulous cloud of diesel exhaust. Another red light is coming, I think great a real launch, but it turns green as we were down to about 20mph or so. I hear him downshift, turbo spooling, and more smoke. I floored it again this time I pull twice as fast. The next red light comes we stop and I go hard at green while he eases on the accelerator to avoid another embarrassment
I've wanted to run one of those for months now, and now I know which truck is faster. :burnout
