Well the other night i was driving the truck, and i noticed that when i rolled into the throttle, it was pegging the 35 psi boost gauge at about 60 mph. So i got home and was about to hook onto the motorcycle trailer for tommorrow and i decided to go drive it one more time to see if it would do it again. So i pull out of my driveway slowly, and there is a long ways to the next car so im watching the boost gauge mindin my own business and i realize im in the middle of the road, and this car has flow up and is on my butt and he is trying to pass me, so i floor it and leave him in smoke and take her up to 90 then slow down cause i get to a stop sign. I then thought, hey well lets see if he wants to play, so i pulled out onto the 4 lane highway with a center turn lane into the far lane and starting accelerating moderately then i realize he wants to go, so i floor it and i start pulling on him, not a ton, but it was from about a 10mph roll and i kept my foot in it till about 90 mph or so. I put about 3 car lenghts in between us, and i started slowing down and he kept on going fast, and i guess either he wanted to run, or was just in a hurry cause he kept on going, went over the big hill and when i got to the top he was already down the otherside and hauling butt. But it was my first real kill in the truck and it sure got my adrenaline pumping. I wasnt sure what kinda car it was till he passed me when i slowed down and i realized it was a caddy, so i felt pretty good. Gosh i love this Looney Tune... Then i loaded up the trailer with the KTM's on it and went cruising the town, i had to fuel up the truck and bikes, and wash the bikes, so i played with some ricers on main street, mind you with a flatbed in tow and got the thumbs up from several people. I also found out that the dually will spin the tires in 3rd on the column from a dead stop with a trailer. First it will smoke like a freight train till the turbo lits, then them tires just start spinning. Poor Dirtbikes.....
Okay i think i said it all........
