Well, I'm not sure how this is supposed to work but I do have a win that happened last week. Three lanes both directions with wide median. It's about 3 miles long with about 8 stop lights breaking things up and a long distance between most lights (minimum is about 1/8 mile). I am lined up at the front of one light with a Grand Cherokee V8, and a Chrysler minivan. (Yes, I realize nobody can win against a minivan no matter the results)
The two were playing race-to-the-next-light before I showed up next to them. I could not resist and did a 3/4 power run for the next set. One guy noticed and laughed (Jeep Guy), the other guy was too into his racing a Jeep to look to his right and even see what I was doing. The next light, I rolled into the intersection to avoid wheel hop (stupid dually) and then hammered it. Anyone that has a Cummins knows about the 'extra kick' you get when you really ask for it. By the time I was through the intersection I was caught up, about 100 feet later I was passing them, (minivan dude finally noticed now, mostly because he was beating the Jeep and was all excited looking forward) and I continued to pull away the entire time until the next light, where I PacBrake'd and idled to a calm right turn like most diesels do. Right and proper. It was very satisfying knowing this dually should never be doing anything like this and does not look like it even could. Hard to explain that feeling. Well, maybe not on this thread. ;-)
