    We were at a light and I got a 5mph rolling start and once we were even he mashed it and we went. All I can say is at the end of the bridge I was still eye to eye with him like when we left the light. It was the non-turbo but it still has 222 horsepower and I've got a 3speed with 33's and stock gearing so I guess I'm pretty proud of myself. Another case of a ricer being put in his place. Just thought I would share.

    I was gonna race a Supra I saw the other night on the way home from work in my 96 GMC, but he turned left and I had to go straight /forums/images/icons/frown.gif . I knew my truck didn't have a chance, but I really just wanted to see if the guy would do it.

    They also get nervous when you roast 38.5 boggers at the light waiting to eat them for breakfast.

    Yeah, greg make sure when you "roast those 38.5's" that you heat em up good so they don't break loose again at like 120!

    And "RICERS" get the bad rap. /forums/images/icons/confused.gif I don't get that? Stupid question, WHY would you want to race a car or for that matter instagate it?
    If he'd given you the finger would he have been the prick?
    Heres another stupid question, hows your 60 to 0 distance?
