Almost killed an Acura TL...literally.

Came to full and complete stop at a stop sign as there was a punk rolling up to an adjacent stop sign (to my right). I guess he thought he could beat me through the intersection, cuz a truck that big towing 6000 lbs. of boat MUST be slow off the line. SOOOO..He makes a half-a**ed stop and tries to beat me through and into his left hand turn.

But before he decided this, I had already began moving (after all, it was my turn).

So, I'm rolling up through the intersection, he's heavy on the go pedal thinking he's got me (with my weight disadvantage and all). Tires screeching trying to make his turn in front of me before I put his driver's seat into his passenger seat with my bumper.

You fellas would be proud, I didn't miss a beat. Healthy steady pedal, not backing off. He barely made it through unscathed, but I'll bet he has a little more respect for the power of diesel after that!

It's a stock 6.4, I'll bet it would have looked much more dramatic if there were a huge black cloud behind me as I took off! Maybe after the warranty dies...

2008 F-250 6.4L PSD, SC, short bed, 4x4 auto, Toreador red. Huntsville motor, all stock except for Injen/Amsoil intake.
