I'll just continue to "race" to work, to the fishing hole, and to the beer store. Call me in 250k miles and we'll see who's still "racing".

that rule wont work. on forum wars there are 3 races. a drag race, a road course, and the tie breaking figure 8. the rules wont be about the race itself, but about the vehicles.

About time to get Rwenzing in on this...lol. That supercharged 5.0L should shut these Colorado boys up...lol.

I like the idea, what do we have to lose, we KNOW our trucks are better. I think it should be as follows:

ok let me change my ideas since colorado boy mentioned the races.

-Stock 4 banger against stock 4 banger (reg cabs)
-reg cab 4.0 SOHC against reg cab whatever the colorado equiv is
to help the 3.slow guys out, there needs to be a race for them too...lol
then 4x4 against 4x4
then last but not least--

Our BEST truck(s) against their very best. Our diesel Ranger versus whatever they have or possibly Bob's 5.0 against whatever they have

I like the idea, what do we have to lose, we KNOW our trucks are better. I think it should be as follows:

1 drag race of each of the following:

STOCK Reg cab 4 cylinders against each other
STOCK Supercab 4.0 against Exteded cab I5

1 roadrace (curvy) of the above trucks

Than have 1 drag race with the BEST top dog truck of the forum. of course I guess ya'll wouldnt mind running against our resident 9 second diesel Ranger (if his engine is rebuilt by that time..lol) or our Superchared 5.0 fella.

These are just my thoughts. I think it would be fun and it wouldnt hurt anything. Just proves that the Ranger is IN FACT better than a Colorado ever thought about bieng ANY DAY.

guys look at the website. its 1 vehicle that will be doing all 3 events. there are 3 events already set on the site. a dragrace, a roadrace (autocross style) and a tie breaker race that is a figure 8.

watch the videos on the site it tells it all.

and no we wouldnt mind that race at all. we have an answer for it.

im not sure why no one is looking at the site, but heres another link....again
http://theforumwars.tv/episodes.html
someone tell me how to embed the video and ill do it that way.

Its only 1 vehicle that is running all 3 events

so far it looks as if all the races are held at irwindale speedway california. person needs to be willing to travel.

I agree. I just thought it was funny. A driver would have made all of the difference in that race lol.

colorado (mid size from 23860$Can) against ranger (compact from 17799$Can, the sport v6 starts at 19699$Can)

way to go gm fanboys, at equal value there's no way you can beat a ford.

We've already had one member local to that area step up. Who do you have available that's willing to race there?
