That thing got a HEMI ?

Ok so me and a friend of mine are rolling back from the store late this evening, and we are driving along minding our own business when out of the corner of my eye, I notice a short bed Dodge gasser pacing us. Near the back of the truck there was a giant HEMI POWER sticker. Now I’m no expert, but I know on Hondas, each sticker is good for at least 50 HP. So I glance over at him, he revs it then speeds up a bit jumping ahead of me. At this point we are approaching a light, there is no one in front of him, but there is a car stopped in my lane, but just when I think it’s not going to happen, the racing gods smiled upon us and the car turned right. Now…do you smell what I’m cookin’? He starts revving and jumping his truck, we make eye contact, he is to my right now, the light turns green, and I take off from a conservative brake-held 2wd launch, get a bit of tire spin, and stay in it, out of first gear quickly, and he is already done, by the time 3rd gear rolled up, he was several lengths back. One for the good guys.

Now the best part, we get to the next intersection, and I go out of my way, to pull along side him, I roll my window down, and motion for him to do the same, so I yell out to him “hey, that thing got a HEMI?” he shakes his yes, and I reply, “that explains why you just your beepbeepbeep handed to you” I thought it was kinda funny, apparently he did not, he flipped me off and was yelling a bunch of stuff, the only words I heard from him that were not cuss words, were “mother” “son” “god” and “hole” my buddy was laughing hysterically the entire time. Out of habit, I reached down to turn the TS back down to 100HP where I usually run it, and discovered, I had never moved it to 140HP, turns out I didn’t need it.

God I love a good Hemi Lashing! Just gets my blood pumping. I had a guy with some Burnt Orange Hemi Ram with some stupid Superbird type fin on the bed try some crap like that with me. What do these guys think they have?

Good Kill. I love it!

I can hang with the hemi crewcab shortbeds but I can't stay up with the regular cab shortbeds or longbed's especially 2wd... those things run like mid 14's!!!

Once I get my chip, the crewcabs will be toast, and once I go injectors those little single cab shortbeds better be watchin out!


GOOD KILL!!!

Nice kill Tony!
Yeah I flat out love eating those Hemi's - mainly because they think they're SO fast because they can beat up on F-150's and such. I work with a buddy who has a Hemi and about every mod you can possibly do without voiding your warranty (tuner, headers, electric fan, etc.) and he runs mid to high 14's. According to him they're in the 15's stock.
