EVO got a Spankin'
For the last six months I've left my subdivision about the same time as a built up Mits EVO
I can hear that he's definitely tuned fartin and sputtering at WOT with huge dual ricer Fart Cans pointing up
and the smell of rich exhaust when he's idling at the light in front of me.

looked similar to this...
but pipes angled up almost to the white paint level

front end similar to this

We end up single lane bumper to bumper 2 or 3 times a month as we approach the nearest highway on-ramp.

Seems we take turns playing follow the leader to see who can pull away the fastest
...and he's usually right on my rear bumper when I'm in front.

But I can also hang on his rear bumper when he tries to pull on me
...drafting behind him is a huge benefit for my 5200lb brick.

Well this morning was the first time we met up again in over a month
...only this time I have an extra 170 HP surprise under my hood
a Ripp Supercharger installed on the weekend.

So just after 6:00 am I was waiting at the light watching my rear view mirror
and sure enough he turned the corner and pulled in behind me ...

:hah: so now I'm as giddy as a little school girl waiting at the light

Light turns green and make the left turn slowly and wait for him to do the same ...but then Hammer Time and I'm Gone!
He's trying hard to catch me but there is no way in he!! this time :SHOCKED:

I watch him slowly getting smaller and smaller in my rear view mirror as I motor down the on-ramp (about a quarter mile long).

I hammer on the brakes near the end so I could get down to the speed limit and merge into traffic.

Finally we have a "Significant" winner after 6 months of taunting each other.

If I ever get a chance to talk to him I'm going to invite him to the track for a real lesson
when I'm in track trim on my little 28" Drag Radials instead of 33" Grappler's/20's!

I Don't usually condone street racing, prefer to take it to the track, but this was not a side by side drag race,
no other traffic on a long merge lane in the early morning hours.

Just two drivers getting up to speed on an abandoned merge lane significantly "quicker" than most :shy:.

hahah that's awesome! Those built evos are no joke. I bet he was surprised as hell and is dying to know why your truck is so fast!

probably my favorite "kill" story by far on here

BlackRamHemi 08-07-2013 02:34 PM

Oh it gets even Better!

I baited him on purpose, it was a Total setup

I installed my Ripp Supercharger license plate bracket several months ago
while waiting for my other parts to arrive. (spark plugs, water/meth kit, transmission etc.)

So the last few times he was on my rear bumper he was close enough to read it,
Totally lulled him into a false sense of security thinking he could run with a Supercharged Hemi no problem.
But little did he know it was not even on the truck yet, and still sitting in my basement patiently waiting for the eventual beat down


BTW, removed the Ripp plate holder just after I installed the supercharger and put my tinted one back on (ironically)

Hope he realizes it was only there for him to see ....SUCKER!!!

Thanks again to Keith, Chris and Ross at RippMods

There's going to be some great Kills later this Fall for sure.
The big year end weekend at our local track is early October,
Nice cool temps and record setting runs guaranteed!

Dang! Very nice kill, evo's are no joke. Especially a tuned one ha. They're the only "ricer" type car id ever own. Along with an sti. You make me wish I had a 2wd regular cab :/ ha

RadioFlyer 08-07-2013 04:27 PM

Awesome kill, but I have to say I'm more stoked about the SC 170 more hp! :Wow1:

Redhemi03 08-07-2013 11:52 PM

Get that thing to the track and get some times!

BlackRamHemi 08-08-2013 09:02 AM

Cant run all out just yet,

Desperate need of a new higher capacity fuel pump
Aeromotive Stealth 340 ordered through my CMR tuner yesterday

He said 500whp is way too much for a stock pump and he wouldn't even let me on the dyno
Specially after he saw my Bud's numbers when we dyno'd his Ripp'd Ram.

Threw my very first code this morning

right after I did this:

Code cleared right away and never came back,
at least it wasn't a Tranny code :158:

I still have install my Water/Meth kit too...

Wire my gauge pod...

and install the new L&M Custom transmission (and tuning for it) and a new ATS Triple Lok 3000 stall Torque Converter
