      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:

      so if you rent the track, you will be able to get the actual 1/4 mile time (instead of hitting the brakes for half of it ;) ), right? i think everyone is wondering what the Troll would run if you accelerate the whole time (and maybe even with some N20). good luck. i hope this race actually happens

      Are there any guesses or ideas of when this race might take place?

      And have you actually seen this Toyota to verify what he's saying, or is he all talk right now?

      the toyota would built buy a freind of ours. we where there the night they dyno tuned it and make 470 or so. this guy also works a couple store away from our good freind so we hear all the low down on it. he leaves in 4X4 and then shift in to second and puts it in 2wd. the truck leaves awsome but he weight almost as much as troll and has big 4X4 tires on his truck. he was talking crap about puting c116 and turning up the boost to 35 pounds but he will break just about every thing but the motor if he does that and that would make for a bad race you know. any ways last night a car club meeting some guys wanted troll to race there freinds cowmaro and where bothering him so my brother said call him up see if he wants to go so they did. any ways when he asked him to race the explorer the guy was like no way why would any explorer want to race me. if he wants to race me there must be some thing wrong with this truck to want to pick on cowmaro's. his freinds asked him what do you think it runs that you are so scared of it and he replied back 10's. that stuff made me laft pretty hard. any ways my brother proceded to tell them how fast it was and talk with them for a while. my brother orded new tires for the race but we need new wheel studs because he broke another rear one agian. so no racing this week ok.
