After the last run the guy just stayed hammered down, and I missed the damn exit. So I called my brother who was waiting at the spot to tell him how it all shook out. How he kept jumping on the 2nd honk, etc.
I finally get back to where everyone was, and the guy hadn't gotten out the car yet, and my brother was all fired up. WTF? Turns out, the guy thought he would be slick and claim victory on the 40mph rolls. He didn't know that I had already told my brother the deal, AND had the go pro mounted. He fumbled over his words, said he wasn't getting out because Brandon was mad at him, etc, lol. Basically, he had to double-tuck his tail, one for losing after talking so much trash, then again for trying to lie about it!
Our runs from 2nd gear were real close. 110mph was about dead nuts, 120 I was pulling, 140+ I'm close to a car out.
This leads me to my 2nd favorite run (hell, while I'm typing).
The srt guy links me up a race with his buddy in a "built fox", that's all I knew leading up to the run. I showed up in street trim, knowing we were digging, but oh well. I show up, and the guy has a h/big cam/i 347 with a big stall, gears, etc. He was on street rubber as well.
The dig run was horrible. Plain and simple, got walked HARD. I talk the guy into a roll. We go from a 10, and I pull a car on him......? WTF?? He says he wants another one, so we go from the same roll. Then he walks me.
He claims he was spinning the whole time the first roll run, and 'took his throttle stop off' for the 2nd run. BullSh!t. For one, you can tell when he stops spinning. 2, what kinda idiot does he take me for, "took the throttle stop off", lol. For a roll race?
So yes, I'm insinuating that he sprayed me. Which in turn I'm saying he was lying about his setup. A 347 with a 6xx lift cam, 1000cfm carb, 4600stall, etc, should be a MONSTER, and does not need juice to outrun a mid-high 12sec car.
Here's the vid. Maybe I'm crazy. I know I'm not butthurt for losing, especially to that car. But knowing I got setup to get puppykicked by the other butthurt fella makes it humorous either way!
Edit: Errr, gotta click the title of the vid for it to work, dunno why.....
