Rode in a Lightning tonight!

I met this guy tonight with a lightning and was talking to him and stuff and he wanted to race my friends truck.Well I asked him to take me for a ride in it and that thing was fast! When he would get on it the torque would just put your hole body back in the seat.I love that truck . Well afterwards he went and raced my friend who has a gmc wiht a 350 bored .30 over with some heads,cam, and headers and he got his ass handed to him bad.My friend is always talking about his truck being fast but he got that ass smoked tonight.Afterwards we stopped and talked again and then my friend was ready to take his truck home he was ashamed haha.

yeah isn't the f150 lightening the worlds fastest production truck? until the dodge SRT-10 (ram 1500 with a 8.3 v10 viper drivetrain) comes out it doesnt even have any real competition.

Lightnings are some sexy a$$ trucks. Better than any other truck, I think. I raced one, but his tires slipped and he instead ended up doing a burnout and I took off instantly. It was not a win of course, because he had no traction. It was awsome hearing that engine roar and seeing the smoke. Gave me goose bumps, but then again loud engines and exhaust fumes always do.
