some country guy has been bugging me forever to race him, he drives a 71 chevy truck, i dono what kind of truck, but he seems to think its fast, it has 405 hp and weighs 5300 lbs he said, i drive a 01 celica gt with a cold air intake and an exhaust,he said if i loose id have to pay for his gas, which would be alot in that truck, so what do u guys think, and how much does weight really matter?
Where are you racing at, that would effect the outcome dramaticly?
flat, straight road, probly will just be about a quartermile, he won't race on any curvy roads, lol, hmm wonder why, but yeah just a straight road basically oh yeah by the way the celica gt weighs just under 2500 lbs also
In street racing, everybody loses.
why do you say that?
You're running down the road, a mom's driving down the road with two
children in the back seat. You guys are doing 80mph, and while you're
looking at the guy in the truck, BAM! you've just become a murderer
You can't win, no point in even trying :2cents:
well i get that, i don't do illegal things anyways though, i woud only race him at a strip though, probly shouldve stated that before, but back to the question though...?
1/4 mile time calculators say he might run 14.6. You probably run 15.4 if you're good at driving. I'd call bullshit on his horsepower number, though.
Well it's easily possible if he's using a 350 or 454 like a lot of people have in those kinds of trucks..
14.6?????? how did you get that? how do you know what gears he has? stall
converter? trans? i've seen trucks run 11s with less horse power.
is the truck 4x4 or 2?
the truck probably weighs less ... this truck is pretty big
CHECK YOUR DATES N00B!!!!!!!!! :banghead:
HAHAHA you are full of shit!
im thinking you are, to bring up a post that was started god knows how long ago, get a life
Actually, I didn't bring it up, someone else did. But the facts are right
And I must be God, because this thread was started on April 27, 2006. Which really isn't that long ago.
Time just seems to move slower when you're retarded. And anyone that asks a question like that... Well, you know. :wink2:
okay, thats the first time i saw i had seen this post since, well, i had posted it, lamboluver started it, my bad, and vwhobo, do u really have to comment on everything?
Uh, no, just the things that catch my interest. And if you look at my post history that answer will be backed up. I think you don't like the fact that I pointed out what was already obvious to many people... That perhaps you're somewhat deficient in your mental capacity. Slow to put it nicely. :wink2:
not everyone knows a lot about cars, or things of that such, I dont spend my time around them too much and i havent tried to learn very much about them, most of my time is spent playing the drums and going to school and or work, im not as dumb as you think, and by the way , im just curious, how old are you?
Funny, I don't expect everyone to know a lot about cars. The problem
arises when people speak as though they know about cars and don't. It's
very transparent to those who do. It would be like me telling you how to
play the drums. I know a little bit about it and have even played around
with them years ago in band. But after saying that, I'm smart enough to
shut my mouth. To pretend I know more than I do would be ignorant and
foolish. That's a tip that most of the members of this forum should take
As for my age, it's well publicized on this forum. Put your curiosity to work.
I'll help you out with his age so you don't have to look for it!
He's the same age as me:wink2:
Actually you're ignorance in this thread wasn't really car related, it was more of an overall ignorance.
Its 48 I believe?
He was supposed to do his own homework if he wanted to know.
OH, oops just thought I was helpin out there, what kind of car do you have for your age?
i was just curious, i didnt want to know that badly lol, i dont really spend time looking at older post
Definately nothing to brag about:sleep:
'99 escort,'85 F150 4x4,'92 Ford Ranger
Ahhh hell yea! Got pics of your ranger, pm me if you do!
your pretty cool .. just thought i would let you know that
