    wrx vs ranger supercharged...

    alright first let me say that his truck was NOT supercharged However, this is how the story started. I had my car parked at Wal-Mart in the back all by its little lonesome. When I come out there is this guy looking at my car and starts asking me to see the engine and all this jive. So, I'm always happy to show someone our car. Then he sees the engine and starts calling it a jap car swears its not as fast as his "supercharged" Ford Ranger. So, I ask him to see his engine and he says he just bought it 2 days ago. And i'm like so show me the supercharger. He points to a box by the headers and at this point I was almost in tears. But I held it in real good and I was like well, lets put my car against yours.

    So we line um up at a light and I let him take off so I keep just barely edging past him in 2nd just messing around. And at the next light he is like laughing and saying see your car is slow. So haha, I tell my friend to roll up the window cause there is about to be a murder. Perfect launch at 5 grand, and by the time I run out 3rd i'm at about 92 when I shut her down. I think my friend said it was about 2 buses

    And as I had thought I get a ranger fly by, and some serious sweet laughs. Never in my life have I wished for a video camera more

    Cliff Notes: Ranger talks crap about his fake supercharged truck. I let him think he is winning during the first race. He talks more crap. Real race I put 2 buses on him and prolly lost weight due to laughter

    should've told him your jap car is nomally aspirated that only puts 120 hp to the wheels.... to the front wheels that is. And that with the addition of mothballs to the tank you probably making like 128 hp to the wheels.

    Im surprised that Ford doesn't/hasn't put a production Ranger out that mimicks the Lightning. I would think it would sell pretty good. Supercharged V6 with all the trimmings.........for low to mid $20,000 would probably lure many who wanted a Lightning but could not afford it. They could even name it "Thunder" . Okay, Okay.......maybe I should leave the naming it to them, but I do think the market for that kind of vehicle is out there. If I remember correctly, GMC introduced a compact pick up with the mighty Typhoon's engine, but I think it was bad timing for the market.
