Cummins KILL

I'll keep this one short.

2005+ Crew cab dually w/ the big wheel conversion and like 4-6 inches of lift. Launches off a red light next to me blowing smoke all over last night. I take off normal, see this and gun it and quickly put a truck length between us by 55mph. I let off and he keeps coming. I mash it again, it's neck and neck till about 70 when I pull on him and I cut out at 85. At the next light I was about to put her in 4 and launch and really smoke him, but he turned off on a side road.

Nice Marty. What color was the Cummins? I've seen the same White one around here with the big-rig wheels and a lift. He revs up when he sees me, but then turns. I've yet to get him at a light.

Big News people...

I am no longer impressed that I beat the above guy even though he was chipped. I drove a *stock* 2003 (commonrail) 5.9 Cummins "4 door" long bed 3500. What a SLUG! even w/ stock size tires on it. My truck only has a cheap intake and 4"exhaust, 33's and weighs almost 1,000lbs more then it currently and STILL hauls azz better then it does.

I'm not sure why, I could barely get it up to 2grand when powerbraking and it wouldn't spin the tires. The only way I could *chirp* the tires was firewalling it from a dead stop on a 90* turn onto another road. I'm assuming there is some sort of governer on it!?!?


The girl that owns it got in my truck afterwards and first was amazed at how big my cab was, and made several comments on how nice it was. Then was like whollly efff this thing hauls azz the first time I got on it. We were on Rt40 on a decent hill that in my truck can pull from 65 to 85mph on before cresting the hill, and I tried it in the cummins - from 60 it barely got to 70 and from 75 on the next hill it barely got to 82. WTF!? I realize these engines can be BUILT and I know they hold the track record, but I was DEFINATELY dissappointed since I was expecting this truck to blow my doors off in stock trim because of the advertised stock power levels and how everybody talks them up lol...


For any disbelievers out there, a STOCK 2001 4x4 extended cab swb Dodge 1500 w/ a 318 automatic on 33's outran it. The girls dad was driving the cummins, she was driving the 318 - he was livid.

That's exactly how I felt, the truck only had 76k on it, while mine has 133 now...

And just to prove it, I'm trying to schedule a race for next weekend if she's back from tenesee
