This guy in a Dodge Hemi Ram shortbed pickup was all over me driving home today. He was on my ass and was constantly trying to race me. The truck was very loud. I could hear the engine screaming and the exhaust sounded like it was wide open.
Well as soon as we got an open stretch of road he pulled along side of me and we gave it a go. From a 1st gear roll (he made the move) I pulled about 1 car in first gear. Then in 2nd gear I pulled another car. I shifted into 3rd gear and I was still about 2 cars in front of him. I pull only slightly in 3rd gear and when I let off at 80mph or so he was about 2 1/2 cars back. I have to admit it was a fast truck. I didn't get a chance to talk to him because he took off so fast. He didn't seem to happy with the results of the race? He should have been.
The truck was obviously modded and much faster than stock. I was pretty suprised to see him hanging pretty tuff behind me at 80mph. I checked out a few websites and there are some guys running low to mid 14s with just basic bolt ons. I didn't know those trucks could run that fast.
