Fox News has a story about people suing Ford for faulty Eco Boost engines. Apparently they shudder, shake and loose power. Go figure.

Try again and if for some odd reason he starts to pull away, you BETTER perform a pit maneuver and put him in a ditch...it's the only way you'll earn back any respect for posting this blasphemy!!

passengers will hurt alot actually... for every 100lbs you add take off 1/10th a second in the 1/4 mile ;) 300lbs extra would make a big difference. I think our trucks are heavier too. Dunno what all else you've done that could add weight? Stereo system, Line-x, skid plate, bigger tires and rims, lifts, etc....

I never raced one but they like to blow past me after coming next to the 5.7 emblem, don't know why. They must know they are faster I guess and have to prove it to themselves while I have kids in truck puttering at 45 mph.

I'm in the same boat. The disdain toward the Tundra badge here in Vegas has gotten palpable lately. :confused: I don't care at all honestly. Every time I have been lured over to the dark side it has ended in failure. I'll take the pulp in this town rather than join the masses. It's fun being a "perceived threat".

It's not a driver error. I've had my fair share of races. He flat out beats me everytime. We are going to line up just me and him and see what happens but I think I know what's going to happen that truck is fast. It's sounds like a leaf blower tho lol
