What engine do you have?
What gearing do you have?
What size tire do you have?
Is this a long bed or short bed?

I have a 88 bronco 302 AOD with 3.55's and no mods. I run 16.30 at 78mph. if you put just some minor stuff on your truck you should do pretty good. i raced a tuned civic and did pretty well. just depends on how bad you wanna beat him put some NOS on your truck and you'll kick ***.

If thats a SRV 'lude your going to have trouble. Thats about 200ishh hp to the flywheel, with his cheap *** mods maybe 185whp in a car that weighs considerably less then your truck.

What mods are done to your truck? If your stock you can get a really good look at his rear bumper =)

Now, I have seen heavily modified trucks around here spank even some nice turbo hondas. But those are slammed s-10's with 350's and there is a 76 chevy with god knows what but the rear tires have to be 2' wide!!! (I live near a GM plant alot of chevy owners)


Anyway,
Best of luck.

I agree about not racing for slips.

Race for gas money, it costs about 30$ to fill his car with premium =)
