its a big a$$ truck though, that weighs way over what your stang does. hes gonna need a lot of hp to beat you. hp per pound ratio sucks on a truck, especially one that big. plus, no way can it launch as hard either. (traction is a big problem with racing trucks because of the weight balance) unless he has just sunk in metric tons of $$$ into that truck, no way will he beat you. stock a duramax runs like an 18 sec 1/4 mile!!! he'd have to shave off 4 seconds just to hang with you. to down and out smoke you, add another second on top of that. it costs a lot of $$$ to shave 4 to 5 seconds off of a vehicle, especially a truck. go to the track and show him and his beloved "bowtie" what racing is all about... oh yes, and gloat unlike youve never gloated before...

ps - if you really do believe he may beat you, you can always slap on a 100 shot of N20 for about 600 bucks....that ought to even things up a bit...:hihi:

at any rate, whether i win or not, ill never back down from a challenge at the track...
