Ha! Raced my boss's Nissan Titan.

Scratch another one off the trash talking list. He talked so much crap how his Titan could whoop on me cause he has 4 more cylinders.

Well,, low and behold, we were coming back from hooters and hit a light. I was behind him and when the light turned green he took off. So I stomped on it and got side by side at about 60 and I started to pull away from him right untill I hit 100 where I just slowed right down. I was about 3 car lengths ahead of him.

No replacement for displacement, but I'm 2000lbs lighter.

So let's see...Ford SVT Focus(that was skill over performance), three civics, a prelude, a Cavalier and now a Nissan Titan. Good Stuff.

Theres only 1 engine in the Titan, so it is technically the base engine. But, car and driver rates it at 6.9 0-60, quicker than the 7.4 for the 3. Just some food for thought.

What would you like me to prove and how? Would you like a picture of the titan? I can get one tomorrow.

I'm not some ricer f*ck that makes up bullsh*t stories to get some online credibility. I have a life beyond some online forum.

EDIT: He has an Automatic if that makes a difference about your opinion

I've never taken into consideration the tests these magazines do. I get 7.4 from Car and Driver, 8.0 from Road and Track and several different times from 3 owners on here.

I beat a new Dodge Ram 1500 with a Hemi...think he missed a gear though...he was catching up really quick and next thing you know he was a speck in the rearview.

I had an encounter with a new Dodge Ram 1500 Hemi on Sunday also. He was getting on it too. We were even through 2nd and then I hit 3rd and pulled away to 2 car lengths and shut it down at 80.

There's no question that you beat him. But that doesn't mean the car can beat his car (Truck) under perfectly even circumstances. Perhaps he's a crappy driver, perhaps something else happened, etc. But no one is questioning that you beat him.

Btw- is your car stock?

I know. He came off sounding like I didn't even race him, but whatever.

AEM CAI, ETB coolant bypass and the ETB ground wire. That's it.
