When people are looking for fun activities to do with other truck drives they sometimes do indeed go onto other forums. Back in the days non-ranger owners signed up to R/F to participate in activities. There's no reason we should ridicule a guest to the forums simply because they don't own a Ranger, especially when it's all for good fun.

There's a difference between being optimist, and refusing to see facts.

brakenit makes some very strong points, i'd prop him majorly if i cared enough to sign up to their forum.

i do think that colorado boy needs to watch his attitude when he is a guest on this site. but at the same turn of the coin i agree that we on here are not treating our guest with the respect that is deserved. above all though i think that the arguing needs to stop because it will get us nowhere. we need to have all possible racers that are willing to participate come forward (from both forums). from there we can proceed to match vehicles to try and find the most equal race possible.

i'd be down to run if i lived there, but the truck colorado/canyon would have to be a 4 cyl auto, no exceptions!!!

after reading all the posts over there, it seems as if they are the ones talking shit, but like i said before, if i lived down in so cal i would run someone, but its not worth the 873 mile 15 hour road trip down there to run some smartass in a colorado, or canyon

See here.

I'm not insulted by Edgeman's comments, nor do I feel they are untrue or unwarranted. (although, maybe could have been worded in a less inflammatory way) There has been a lot of back and forth since he came by with his "friendly invitation" and even though he has been a very good sport about things for the last 13 or whatever pages of Ranger enthusiasts acting exactly the way Ranger enthusiasts should act when a Chevy enthusiast swings by, Colorado Boy HAS started getting a little bit abrasive since he found out there was a moderator taking his side.

I would really like to see something come of this, and would even go so far as to suggest an annual competition between forums done independently and arranged by admins of this forum and theirs. But Colorado Boy IS a GUEST here, as he is not a Ranger owner or driver, nor has he expressed any interest in becoming one. We should treat him with the respect a quest deserves but he should be gracious also and not cop an attitude with members here, and (in my opinion) IF the mods are going to start issuing warnings or temporary bans it should be made CRYSTAL CLEAR to the guest that it is a last report to maintain a respectful relationship with the representative of the other forum, and NOT simply taking sides. (unless that IS what is going on, lol)

Anyways, I'm getting off my soapbox. A certain chevy owner's smugness in the face of a mod here sticking up for him just kinda rubbed me the wrong way, and I think Edgeman was catching heat unjustly.
thank you.

i will admit fault for being abrasive. and with that being said, i will put an end to my posting in this thread. i dont have any reason to be in here unless colorado boy has a friend in south carolina that wants his ass handed to him at a red light, parking lot, orv park or track.

Make sure it doesn't have the 5.3l v-8, or you are burned toast.

I we were to do a race between 4 banger reg cabs, and somebody wanted to pay my way to cali, I'll put the Ranger back into shape and go. It's been known to turn a corner fairly well, and beaten a few things it shouldn't have in a straight line.

Ranger 2wd 4-cyl reg cab, no engine mods, 3:73 gears.


Can I run race fuel. I like they way it runs on 104 octane!

i wouldn't advise trying to run race fuel on a stock motor. it has lots of other things in it that normal fuel doesn't have. now octane booster is a different story, you'd be fine with that.

if they had a 2.8l 5speed id race em in my 2.9l 5 speed granted my truck is about 20 years old and has a couple hundred thousand miles but hell i always like a bit of fun..

and for a fair race i would have to say a 3.5l versus a 4.0l with same amount of lift or a stock height those are the two closest motors as far as stock power goes
