We got about 2 inches of the white crap here in Indy by the time I got off of work today. The truck is rock solid as it can be, no slipping, sliding or any lack of control. I had this idiot talegating me with the road being nothing but ice and snow. When I got a red light, this guy in his Chevy Avalance whips over next to me. I'm thinking are we going to have a drag race on the ice and snow..............yeap we sure did. By the time I had gone about at the quarter mile he was about a half mile behind me. That is how bad the hemi gobbled him up and spit him out and I wasn't even running that fast. He just didn't have the traction or control that I had. This was definitely a first for me, I never have raced in the snow before.

...... If you went a quarter mile, and you were a half mile ahead.... Did he go in reverse?????????

I don't condone street racing, but I got on it against a ricer... I lost because I spun all 4 off the line, and he took off slow. It was wet, but didn't think it was that slippery. Too much torque :) (yeah.. right.. :) )

Racing in the snow not too smart though.

Well, we all know racing in the snow is dangerous. But, trust me i understand how you felt, i have done the same a few times. That truck is solid. Only problem is trying to stop quick in the snow. lol. But hey, now you know that you can spank people on...AND off road ;) Glad you guys made it safe, and i wanna say good job, but i dont want people shooting me for saying it either lol :p :secret2:

Yeah - to each his own. I call those who just witnessed people backing up and giving up, that they couldnt get up the snow covered hill, stupid for thinking that they could in the same car, wasting my time - then giving up as well....

So when its your turn, you gotta show up everyone (in 2wd) ! :)

If a guy in a D lines up next to you at a light, you hit the gas to go, and he pulls away from you like you're standing still (and you just happen to be a ricer) would you not feel belittled.. expecially if the D happens to look like this:




Sorry except for the rear of my D squating, I love that picture...

How can you tell? the D is the same color as the dirt! It was snowing that day I was driving around all day with the trailer and still had to shovel it before I could load the ram on it...

I should ad I was about -25 that day as well.. no washing unless I don't want to get out of the truck until it warms up in the spring heh

That is exactly what a guy here at work ask me, "Was he reverse??" It was like he killed engine at the line. My other thought was maybe he swerved into the other lane to keep from hitting me!? Oh well, it was still fun blowing him away, but I'm not going to make a steady diet of racing in the snow.

We got a total of 12.5 inch of snow by 10am the next morning, but I had no problems driving the D through the snow. However, by next winter I am going to get some real tires with bigger cleats. The tires appear to be the original tires that look like a car/truck style of tread.
