Default Another Truck!?

Well, I raced another truck last night! This time it was a 1992 Chevy 2500 2wd extended cab with the 6.5L Turbo Diesel. Pretty damn quick for a truck but of course "Grandma'* Revenge" pulled away after a few sec. off the line!

6.5s a good engine. better pull then the duramax.. inorder to get good pull outta a duramax you gotta put in a chip.. then its all good...
1992? you sure?
2wd 3/4 with a 6.5? very weird mite have the 6.2,cuz of the 2wd... or a 6.5 without a turbo.

well ****, if we are talking about truck kills now... i raced 2 trucks last week. one was a 1990 Chevy 1500 with the engine from an 89 Z71 in it, i asked him how fast it was (cause i saw him taking off spiritedly from a stoplight before) he told me with confidence that "it could take that", so i'm like "SWEET!!! I gotta see this, lets go!" so we go, basically there was no contest, his *** was grass... we pulled into a gas station and i poped my hood he was like "DAMN!!! It'* only a 6???"

next kill, don't know what year, but it was late 90'* or 00+, F-250 with 6" raise, huge tires and a turbo diesel, he was sure he could take me, and he was almost right. i was supprised how well he kept up, i barely got ahead of him before the merge. all i can say is those diesel'* are torquy mother'* (and i knew this before i raced him)

No I wasn't dumb enough to race him with my SSEi, I raced him in the 1/8 with my Firebird.
We posted the identical 9.1 time but he got me off the line and I ran out of track before I could catch up....but I was gaining on him.
Give me a couple of more years of modding my SSEi and then I will take him on.

Oooo those Firebirds are fun, specially when built up to the 6.6L potential. I know vettes in 79 got very little power...
