This is funny lol

but are we talking about "light" poles, or "electrical" power line poles?

or perhaps just count to ten and see how fast your going lol

how about what is it in the quarter mile?

then again we own trucks.. IMO i could careless how fast it is unless its lowered with like a blower or v8....
or you have a beat up 4.0 OHV and you live a few miles from the infamous 6.0 Diesel Ranger... and you're gonna race him for lots of laughs. thats right, be jealous

3. I have something bad to say to most of you, but I'll just keep it to myself.
1) you have NO idea how many 2wds on this site off road.. i do most of my offroading right now in 2wd anyways..
2)nope see above
3) or you can just leave.

Hey guys!! So earlier today.. I was driving down the road, and I saw those infamous light poles.. I actually managed to drive past 5 of them in a row cruising at 25mph... sorta scary with them that close to the road.. but its okay! I managed it pretty darn well!
