    Oh yeah the camera man was really really bad. He's fired! So next time we race, i promise a better and steadier video.

    We got up to about 110-115....beat him by about 1.5 car lengths...

    Not sure what kind of camera you were using, but the film looked like it was done in the 70's.

    2 suggestions - get a tri pod and a digital camcorder.

    have you ran the 1/4 mi yet, I would be interested in your numbers.

    two lessons were learned.

    1. Cars are generally faster than trucks
    2. crackheads make bad cameramen, even if they work cheap.

    Actually we did use a digital camcorder, but the guy that made this made it look like it was. Even i was like wth when i first saw it, so yes it was in color before he did what he did 2 it. Yeah after we saw how bad the cameraman(Friend of ours who we should have given the camera to anybody else there that was watching) was, he then showed us that he had a tri-pod. Yeah i haven't ran the quartermile yet, but i will as soon as i can. But that truck is making about 5-600 horses, maybe even more than that. That thing's no joke. The only bad thing about it (besides that it's a truck/ways a lot) is that he doesn't have a posi on it...once he gets that he may just roast me. i think he will be getting the track sooner than i will, so i'll tell you his times, and my times should be really close to that. Last time he was going to the track his alternator went out on him and had 2 turn around. Anybody in houston want to meet up and race, or want to just meet up?

    WHY! Would anyone want a 500-600hp truck with one leg?

    Yeah he has a posi, just hasn't put it on yet. And the amazing thing was how far his burnout was...his tire tracks was about half the race...but when it stopped we were just even...nobody was pulling..but yeah i'll go with you that he'll just kill me once he gets the posi and better tires. Watch out in houston...he'll be out there searching..as well as i and my friend with his trans-am.

    I raced a truck too. I didn't know i was racing until he was about 3 car lengths ahead and he launched that **** like crazy. I was impressed how fast he launched. So I do my sissy roll out and I couldn't catch the SOB until about 70-75 mph. He had something interesting in that bad boy. THe passenger was looking back at me smiling as if I would be devastated or something, but I just smiled back, because I know you can soup up any car I am no moron If I would have known it was that hot of a truck I might have launched it to make things interesting.

    Oh and btw Linkin Park, unlike many bands these days actually has some talent. I don't mind their music. I just hate mindless lyric crap that is prefabricated and shat out (pop, country). Even though I have to admit pop can be catchy.

    This truck is no joke. It can do low 13's at least. It beat a GT Mustang and it was burning out as it was passing him. It was great to see that race. Watch out if your in houston, me and my friends have seen quite a bit of sleeper cars & trucks (s-10's, f-150's) with huge motors, blowers, nitrous. That's why whenever i get into a race, i don't care what kind of car it is, i punch it because i never know what that other person has in their car. Plus if they don't have anything, then i can shut it down a lot earlier cuz they will give up after seeing me just roast them in second.
