wasn't tryin' to be a smart A$$, just sayin' it was his Ranger since he was in "stock" class was all...

down here we have classes for "street" all the way up to "high power, custom rigs"....

just like our drag strips, they allow daily drivers all the way to alky burnin' top fuelers....

Oh yea i drag racing with it. does dang good to. I think i got the classes i won trophies in my signature. But i started out racing street stock, when to to V8-V10 street stock and was still kicking ***. so i got brave once and entered a V8 Modified division. I placed 4 outta 15 trucks. I mean i was racing some serious trucks. First place when to a Ranger with a 393w. I run a pair of 35.5x10.50 buckshots. One of the better mud tires around in my opinion.

Yea, not gonna lie i was really surprised too. But i think the big thing is power to weight ratio. Heavy truck are slower in mud. And my buddy showed me a bunch of tricks like greasing the sidewalls and treads so mud doesn't stick in them. Alot of the guys i race use really wide and fairly bald tires. Skinny tires with tread will win every time. There was a dodge 1500 with a supercharged 360. I beat him by almost a second cuz he had all terrains. All that power and no traction.
