    How many mustangs, corvettes, camaros, chevy II's or SS's have you beat. We don't see too many diesel trucks racing on the streets or at the strip on Sunday afternoon's around here.

    I have beat many Ricers and Neons etc. I have beaten the occasional stock V8 Mustang, and Grand Am. Last time I ran the 1/4 I was very consistent , very low15sec. I have since done several mods and have a set of drag tires. Can't wait till this spring. I have some BIG mods planned for this season that should get me into the mid to low 12's. A guy I know runs consistent 11.1's @120mph with his 1ton CC. Neither of us run drugs. Like was said it takes a lot of money to go fast in a PSD. The Cummins are cheap to make big H/P with.

    Haven't raced any of those yet. I'd probably get beat but I'm definitely not afraid of a muscle car. I'm building one myself actually. It's an 81 Olds Cutlass and I'm putting a 396 Chevy in it.:nod: I race all those stupid a-- fast and furious wannabe dorks with their rice burners and loud annoying mufflers. That's what I beat. It's kind of neat seeing a huge white truck beating a little Honda or Toyota:nod: :drinkup:

    Look HERE for one that does 12.33 quarter mile at 110 mph. That's fairly fast for a PowerStroke Diesel. HERE is a little reading on a Cummins that did 11.24 @ 120 mph. The Cummins can be built up a little more than the PowerStroke. You might also read THIS ONE. 11.28 on #2 is fast.....

    Same question for diesel trucks as for rice burners that want to race, WHY??? I woud have to guess, that you probably have your STS or DTS set up for the 1/4 mile also? Or is your SUV tubbed out with slicks? Seriously, maybe there is an advantage to having a 10 second truck to plow snow with or to haul your mowers with. While you are racing around to put in bids, you will be the 1st one there. Maybe I should put a plow on my stroker.

    The last time that I had my 99 at the track it ran 15.8 and my 97 (with a 460) ran 15.3, I am going to try and find the slips to get the mph. A buddy of mine has a 01 that is identical to my 99 but he has an auto, he ran something like 14.9 or 14.8. I want to take my 03 to the strip sometime this summer to see what it will do, I am guessing it will run mid 14's.:yow!: :yow!:

    Your right, however I'm not racing rice burners or 4x4 diesel trucks either. I mean I love racing, but if you want to race why put money in a rice burner or a 4x4 diesel truck? If you want to race, why not build a race car? I'm just glad that you like to race, I'm just confused as to why a 3/4 ton or 1 ton diesel truck? Couldn't you find anything any heavier? To each his own. I can see a Ford Lightening, I just have not seen too many diesels in drag cars lately. Maybe I'm missing something, and I should drop the stroker and replace it with a powerstroke or a cummins.
