Default Not proud of this kill!

I'm not proud of this kill, but here goes. My friend he owns a Dodge Ram, disel. He has a smok stack coming out of his truck bed, big 34 inch tires. But, we were at a stop light and I'm behind him and he'* reving up his engine. O ya we were on Main ST. and the speed limit is only 25. So when the light goes green, he'* flooring it and so did I, but I had to lay off right away so I would'nt rear end him, but we were doing bout 35 or so, and I decided to pass him. While passing him I hit 65, on Main St. theres houses around and cars, 25 is the speed limit (Thank God no coppers around)of course he couldn't keep up. But theres this other car behind me passing him too, it was this POS, Z24 Chevy something, it had dual exh. and sounded like crap, and I played around with him for a while, he would get in front of me and floor it, and I would be right behind him. Never raced him tho, but we all know who would have one.

watch out for some of the diesel * out there, they have programers, turbo mods, intercoolers and other mods that make them come to life. the fords are the best for this. i had a customer that too his 2000 ford f-350 to banks turbo . did about 6000 bux worth of mods to it. i could smoke the tires easily in it. he uses it to pull a 40' camper. its a sweet ride too with the wing on top and all.

The speed limit is 25 for alot of reasons.
I don't wanna sound like grandpa but watch out for the little ones. I got 4 in my house that play outside all the time.

i know what you mean, i have 2 myself, ages 5 and 8. my youngest is the one that made me add the nitrous to my talon, now he wants me to add it in the bonny too. he tried his best to talk me into putting the nitrous button on the center console so he could push it.
getting him a JR dragster for his birthday in april. so with the G TECH , he can be ready when he is 8 and can run it at the track

My kids are my co-pilots, too. I keep the speed down with them, but still race off the line and for passing. Some of you know Lilpooky here. She'* my primary co-pilot. She hits performance shift for me when I need it. I drop the shifter, she hits the button. Now I have to teach her how to read the scan tool while I'm driving. She already handles that performance shift and the GPS just fine

Not bad for an Almost 13-year-old. Not bad at all. She still gets a little gunshy in traffic, though. She was with me when we got totalled last May 6.

As far as Dodge Rams go, this reminds me of my "6 for 1 special on Sundays" post http://www.bonnevilleclub.com/forum/...pic.php?t=1476 but I didn't have my copilot with me on that one. That was while I was testing the RSM rotors from DP.
