Flashlight Drags Kills

Pretty happy after yesterday, we have a little thing up here in western pa called flashlight drags, its an 1/8 mile no time slips, just heads up racing and you leave on an arm drop, its on an airport runway so its all legal

-anyway...i was out there just messin around and a few cummins guys called me out sayin they'd smoke me and all this, there was a 12v 24v and 2 common rails. lined up against everyone of them and beat em in the 8th by like 2 truck lenths

after that i get a few ricers come up sayin ya you can beat other big trucks but you cant beat a true performance car so i took it on. i ended up racin a turbo'd integra. Smoked him pretty good

so after all that they do this race off type thing where they split it into classes...out of 12 trucks i got second. only lost to a 4 banger turboed ranger buildin 30 lbs of boost on a stock shortblock but overall it was a fun night

Ricers wouldn't know a "true performance car" if you ran them over with one.

imagine it would a different race if you would have had your two do list installed. im sure that nitrous would have made the difference in the race. I think the 190's vgt turbo would have helped to HAHA. Good time. i am going to have to check the video out when I get home. Work blocks youtube.

Thats my friends blue GTO! I think he ran low 12's in the 1/4 mile at a actual drag strip. I know he was having traction problems at the airport. A very fast car to ride in! That truck is def mean if it can beat him.
