Unhappy Stomped by a truck

Bastard cut me off just before the ramp onto the freeway. Around the clover-leaf, he's going maybe 20 barely screeching around the outside. I could have passed him on the inside no problem, but I figured he would just ram me. At the top of the ramp though, we both floor it and he leaves me behind in a cloud of diesel smoke. Granted he was in a Ram 3500 flatbed. Damn turbo-diesels. Naturally aspirated at altitude is lame.

N/A is lame at any altitude really. You would've been stomped by the same truck at sea level just the same.

And yes, N/A 7's are NOT fast cars. A majority of forced induction 7's aren't even that quick compared to today's standards.

twin batteries is standard for diesels. they need the amperage to even get those trucks to start.
