Last night I had a 03 lightning pull up next to me while I was heading down Gratiot. We wanted to catch a light, so we could have a little fun. So we did. The light turned green and I watched him take off while I sat there and smoked the tires like an ass. Needless to say he beat me. So we get side by side again and agree to take off from a 30 mph. rolling start, so we do. I had it in second and we both hit it, thats when I instantly pulled about a half a truck length on him, but then I go to shift to third and I loose the half a truck lead but I still stayed out front. We did this one more time at a 15 mph rolling start, again we take off, being honest I had little advantage on him we were glued side by side, but my problem comes when I shift. Evey shift I seem to loose a little ground alowing the lighning to pull ahead. I realy need more practice shifting faster along with getting off the line. Anyway we pulled into a gas station after the fun to check out eachothers trucks, he was a fan of the srt-10 which was cool, I almost thought he was going to be a **** about beating me but he was'nt. I go to find out that he has a different pully on his truck and that he also had his tires syped. Not to make excusses or anything the fact of the matter is he only beat me because my shifting realy SUCKS! Other than that I would have to come to the conclusion that we definately have the advantage once the truck is in motion, but it is a real headache to find out how to beat them off the line that's for me anyhow.
