my 95Z VS 2007 Dodge RAM 3500 Turbo
Ok well I was on my way home form work this evening minding my own business and out of no where this dodge ram 3500 pulls up next to me now remember were doing 70mph and while hes right beside he guns it and im in 6th gear running at 1500 rpm so I gun it too and I hear him pushin on the throttle for more gas and the turbo spooling up but im still walking on him so then he backs off and I go back to driving normal then he decided he wants to try again so im like ok so were doing 60mph at this point so I decide hell ill down shift to 5th to get a little more speed so we takeoff and I walk all over his ass. Is it me or is that just weird that I beat that truck 2 times? Its a 2007 Dodge RAM 3500 with 5.9-liter Cummins Turbo Diesel

He might be laying down a few baseline runs before he starts to mod it.
Ya gotta know where you stand @ first.
Next time drop a few gears before the run and show him he needs ALOT of mods.

na its good to keep em thinking they're close, then when they do a banks kit you'll still pulll him

depends on what banks kit. I have a 2005 ram 3500 CTD 4X4, single rear wheel,short bed and it's a 4 door, it'll run low 12s all day, with a 4WD launch. it has a banks TT kit, custom tune from gillette diesel inc. 5 in. monster exhaust and alot more. but it lays down 544.6rwhp and 871.3RWTQ. So I'd be careful with diesels, there's a HUGE aftermarket for them, and they make big power, there's a few guys here where I live with trucks deep into the 10s. just 0.02$2006 impulse blue G.T.O

yes very true, but i meant there is a small percentage of those guys that drop that much shit into their truck, most just get the basic kit or what ever and think they can own everything

I played with one of these on Monday. I picked my daughter up from school (I try and be very good with the kid in the car), anyway I've got the top down and I pull up to a red light next to this new dodge dewly (noticed the turbo badge). Guy rolls down the window and says car looks good but it sounds great, gave him a smile said thanks (thinking in my mind you gonna get to hear it real good when I pull in front of you in just a minute). As I'm looking back at the road the light turns green and he's on it - I was in neutral now I got to play catch up cause the road goes to one lane a ways up and I'm not getting stuck behind him. So I jump on it when I snapped it into 2nd the back end kicked out on me and my front end was pointing to his truck, I stayed on it with the wheel cranked to the left and passed him (I actually looked up at him while passing him and he was looking down at me with a WTF look on his face), car straightens up and I get in front of him. Feeling rather proud of myself I look over to see my daughter ghost white and almost ripping the door handle off. It's now I realize what a kid I just was and quickly start to feel like a prick. At the next red light guy jumps out of his truck and runs over to my car (I thought he was gonna give me a mouthfull, like I didn't feel bad enough). He get's to my car and says with the biggest smile on his face "That was the best thing I've ever seen" Then takes off, He actually made my daughter smile. She hasn't told on me yet...

I have an 05 Dodge dually with the 6-gun, flowmaster exhaust, green air box
I wouldnt race a ls1 I would race a honda or 6 cyl mustang it really does run good for a 7000 lbtruck would be quicker if I could shift it fast enough

Speaking of rams, some guy in a hemi quad cab thinks he can run with a ls1 now(not that they all don't) He was next to me at a light a few hours ago and just takes off...I couldn't do shit about it because my tires are bald as hell and the road is a little damp He got about 3 cars on me before I could get the tires to hook past 1/4 throttle....by 65-70 I passed him. I hope he let off because if not those things are slow as hell.
Morale is I hate the rain...the end
