Default Re: Wanna beat a 4.3L, mod advice please

why race anyway?

how about you act like your going to race him then when you go just slowly start to go and let him speed off and point and laugh at his stupidity and point at him for having a little penis for racing.

trucks arent meant for racing, if you are that serious about racing and beating someone (and you shouldnt) you need to turbo or supercharge it.

Where are you going to race? Take it to a drag strip? Or going to find some empty street and do it there? Risk the chance of running over some kid who runs into the road.

Don't be stupid. If you and your friends are all fired up to race, then do it right and go to a go-cart track. It is safe and legal.

Sort of like Back to the future II when needles goads marty into racing his toyota against his truck; both are lined up, engines revving, light turns green and.... needles takes off, Marty goes in reverse, whips a shitty, looks back and sees needles swerve to miss the rolls royce, that marty would have hit.

He has a 2000 so his 4.0 is th OHV and is down on hp by around 30 or so I would bet. Don't race on a public street no matter what. I get called out to race all the time with my T/A but I ain't stupid enough to attempt it on the street, its retarded no matter what you are driving.

You need to keep in mind that these boards are loaded with ringers paid by SEMA to convince guys (or gals) like you that you need to BUY STUFF. Most are in call centers in India and make 7 cents an hour signing up and pretending to be cool Kaliforniacating hot rodders.

Pay half a mil for a 30 second superbowl spot and 3/4 of the viewers have the mute on and of the remaining quarter 0.00001% are buyers of automotive aftermarket stuff. Or pay a hundred bucks for 1,428 hours of guys typing 60 wpm on these boards where the buyers just want to be told WHAT SHOULD I BUY?

Well according to weather.com, it is 85 degrees and hazy moonlight. Sunny and hot for the rest of the week. But where I live in Maryland, USA, it's about 40 and sunny.

So you're still full of crap. I'm pretty sure most of the people that have been here and other Ranger forums for a long time and have met one another over the last 10 years would agree that you're wrong.
