    well we all know Troll drive his truck every day to work and it is a sleep capable of destroying many fast sports cars. well we just ran in to a 4x4 99 Toyota Tacoma with twin turbos and a build motor that wants to race us. it makes a ton of power and is 4X4 and runs great and is a true Sleeper with stock tires and stock ride hight. it will be a great battle of the sleeper trucks in miami. we will let you guys know how it comes out. yes we are bring race gas and slicks.

    well alright. havent heard much from "THE TROLL" in a while, and we were all kinda gettin' a little anxious... sounds like a good race. wonder how he's layin' down that kind of power and still keeping the transfer case alive... any plans on possibly another video of the run?

    should be interesting to see, not to be offensive, but i'd say the truck has a weight advantage, but.. who cares.. I'm rooting for troll :)

    Where are you gonna race if you're not allowed at the track anymore? On a lonely country road somewhere?

    And I hope you're gonna use the nitrous oxide :D

    if we rent the track you can run with out safty regulation to a certain extent. we will probibly spray him with slicks. we have a lot of advatage over the truck except for weight but who cares. we have a better power band, better toque and more power. he has a big transfer case and it is 5 spd so we dont have to shift any gear wasting time with a clutch. we will tape it hopefully and will are yet to see wether we will be at the track or on the street although we will make shure every thing is safe no matter what we do.

    I would love to see Troll and the guy down the road from me race after he finishes installing his twin turbo kit on his Dakota R/T. Too bad you're 24 hours away. :rolleyes:
