Anyone else have my problem?

Ok i bought my truck over a year ago. its new its nice its pretty its the sonic blue color all that good stuff. One of my first mods is a new exhst. it sounds ok nothen to loud. Next i add 20in. wheels, there chrome there big they sit just right makes the truck look awesome. Well my 3.0L aint really hittin on much as a stock motor especially in the race catogory. But from the time i had the truck till i put the 20's on i didnt race a soul person. now almost a year later after my dubs, i get more ppl trying to race my happy butt all over town. I guess my bigger wheels make most ppl here think that that adds more horsepower to the truck. i mean come on. Anyone else get this problem or something like that lol. Just thought i would ask. oh and if im in the wrong thread sorry for it, i just thought this might be the best for asking this type of question.

Where did I see this quote? It's from a movie, yes?

"If it looks fast, it better be fast. If it doesn't look fast, it better be even FASTER."

Guess you fall into the first category. My truck doesn't look fast. And it isn't fast. So I fail the above test miserably and proudly, lol!

Well I dont know wut the connection is between big rims and horsepower every person I know with big rims has a super slow car or truck and even if their car is fast they still wouldnt race in fear of bending those high $$$ rims so thats what u really should do just dont race if u have rims you could bend them if u hit something and im sure u wouldnt like that so just sit still and go as slow as much as possible to show em off!
