Lollerskates

Today I was trying to rush out of a parking lot into some traffic coming and I wanted to be first and not wait for them. So, I gas it hard out onto the road and my truck isnt able to peel out (first time i have tried since i got the tires and wheels). So, When i get to work, I try to peel out in the parking lot, but my truck has no power to spin the wheels. The engine kind of bogged down and i got a wiff of clutch. I thought I would atleast have enough power to peel out, but nothing. Makes me laugh. Evan my '78 Nova with bad compression in 2 cylinders would peel out =)

haha that sux.

well i guess it story tome for slow-ness....

I realized how true that 3.slow slogan was.

I raced a 4.0 1990 ranger the other day just for fun and i got SMOKED ....

i gave up before i even hit the speed limit of the road (45mph) Figured it wasnt worth getting a ticket when i clearly lost BIG TIME.

i thought i would have a chance seeing that mine is 9 years newer than his...i guess not.

Nah, no plans to improve motor. Speedo stops at 92mph and i know its slower than that in actuality cause my tires are smaller than stock size. No reason to add horses when they are wearing shackles ><
