wanna know how fast a v6 magnum is?

just fast enough to lose to a ranger on 33's hahaha

some douchekid in a cute little magnum trying to bump rap music with a stock stereo and some nasty lookin 20" wheels.

kid revs at me at a light for some reason. so at the light we go and i beat him by about 2 lengths.

i just thought it was funny the kid would even try to race a ranger. i mean im sure he figured he would win or something, btu whats the point? honestly?

anybody else have any kills in their trucks? hahaha

I can say.. I got scootin a bit over 80mph near 192nd and Mill Plain over in Vancouver agaisnt some dude in a fast lookin car.. its amazing what a ricer will put on a vehicle to make it look fast.. and then they step on it and by the time you are 3 lengths away they realize there little 4cyl doesn't cut it anymore Sure.. they can hold up to us right off the line, maybe scoot a bit - but there is a difference once the torque ends and the horsepower starts kicking in

I was at a stoplight yesterday and in front of me was an ugly s-dime that was "trying" to be custom, it was on ugly 20s with some crappy bodywork done. the guy had an ugly homemade rollpan with fake dual exhaust coming out sidebyside in the middle of the rollpan, and it sounded like a dang tractor....

everybody know after this stoplight, the road merges from 4 lane to 2 lane in about 200-250 yards or more (give or take)....well the light turns and he shifts so i go to pass him to get in front of him before it turns 2 lane so i didnt have to hear that POS truck he had, and just as i expected, i see him looking back and give it gas and shifting as hard as it'd let him...i just give the Ranger a little more gas (not alot) and got in front of him no problem...think i made him mad, i could hear him revving the engine behind me after we hit the 2 lane....HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA



the start line was the stoplight at the green flag, and I passed him right after that and blew him away well before the 2 lane at the checkered flag!

glad im not the only one lol

yeah i've beat some other cars, its sad. my friend has a 93 5.0 vert. its an auto as well. nice looking car, but its slow as hell. i think its a combo of the auto tranny and the extra weight of the convertible top. but my truck beats it everytime.
