Sorry Ford, But You Asked For It

Out doing a little running around today and I'm on the long straightaway near my house (perfect for racing, 3 lanes one-way for 3 or 4 miles) when I come up on a white dually. I spot the exhaust and gauge pod and ease up next to him. Truck's an '02, 7.3, 6-speed, regular cab XLT. I look over and nod and the guy shoots me a stone faced look. He jumps on it, gets in front of me and blows some smoke at me, then jumps in front and brake checks me! I move over and get next to him and he's god a smirk on his face. Alright buddy I reach down, and bump up the edge box to 5 and just wait for my chance, because I really want to embarrass this jackass. So finally come up on a stoplight. And I hear him boosting it, I hit the 4wd switch and give her a little boost. Lights green and we're off. There's a nice cloud of smoke left behind us I'm 1 1/2 trucks ahead and pulling and laughing the whole time. We come to the next light and I say "nice run, you game for one more?" He doesn't want to hear it and rolls up the window. So I turn the radio back up and continue singing along to Frank Sinatra. "Fly me to the moon" when I'm interrupted by the epitome of a wanna-be. (I mean, this guy is bright white, red hair, wearing a big-*** chain, and a sunvisor turned to the side, driving a Honda Prelude. Bodykit, ridiculous wheels, huge tach on the dash.) "You beat that big ol' truck, let's see you beat a HIGH PERFORMANCE machine" Well, I just cracked up laughing at that one. So hard in fact, I didn't have time to build any boost before the light changes. He got the jump on me, until the turbo lit. I sailed right past him with a I slowed down, and rather than the typical ricer flyby he pulls next to me and yells "dude that was effing awesome!!! I didn't think your monster truck could beat me!!" That one killed me.

yea we can do that but if you catch to low of an rpm in 2nd,you will bog it and look like a joke,you can creep in first then hit the brakes,but you will be spinnin the tires at the light,first gear is good till about 5mph,i guess us zf guys just shouldnt race.
