Re: GMC 2500 4X4 and you got it made baby

  1. most importantly, though, your GMC weighs about 4000 lbs, has a high roll center, and the 44" inch tires are not an advantage at all. The weight alone will get you smoked by this FRENCH car - i highlight that because it means it's not a r-i-c-e (once again the page won't let me spell that word normally) burner...aren't they japanese?...-, but add to it the fact that having larger wheel/tire diameter will kill your acceleration and you have the recipe for getting ripped apart by any WRC car. Your much increased ride height would also make your monster roll off a cliff if you tried to corner at the speeds that these cars do, and your horsepower advantage is negated by the afformentioned loss of acceleration. You might have higher top speed (emphasize "might" since these things can average 120 mph on a gravel rally stage), but it will take you a hell of a lot longer to get there. I hope by now you're starting to see my point so that i don't have to go into braking distances, active suspension technology, and tire patterns...I'm sure your truck is an awesome off-roader, but it's not even in the same world as this thing.
     
  2. ok fine u guys win-but still it is a really cool truck

    I would like to know what you did to the Duramax to get 400 hp when it is 300 stock. Also, Peugeut is not Japanese, it's European.<!-- Signature -->
     
  5. ok people forget about the duramax it wasn`t out when my truck was made -my traucks an '85! 501ci -400hp easily

  8. nah man he retracted his statement. look to one of his other posts. its all good.
     
  9. I'm sure this was mentioned before but,THIS IS NOT FROM JAPAN DUMBSHIT. Before you talk shit atleast have an idea of what your saying.<!-- Signature -->
     
  10. holy shit guys it doesn`t matter where the cars from and besides i took back my statement
     
  11. Damn how i hate those morons who drive those wannabe monster trucks, they think they own the road. However, any EDUCATED individium understands that people who own those raised huge trucks are only compensating for for something that they lack, usually their lack of manhood...

    P.S. your old, broken down, ugly truck is made to TOW, not to accelerate or reach any kind of respectable top speed, so maybe if you go to the ford model T forum, MAYBE and i do say MAYBE you can talk trash about that cars performance comparing to yours... freakin loser<!-- Signature -->
     
  12. whoa buddy lay off the guy. He recanted his statement so stop raggin on him. And if you're going to call someone stupid i would advise you to check your spelling...i've never seen the word "individium" before.
     
  13. good stuff guys.....
    trucks are trucks and cars are cars so stop the name calling .....we are all adults. I would be scared to think that some off those comments written were driving their own cars in the street.

  14. hey corvette zo6 maybe if you persued a higher education you would hear the word used...imbicyle<!-- Signature -->
     
  15. that's a new one too...but i've heard of imbecile. Go deal with your anger issues, buy a dictionary and then come back and talk about cars like an adult. I'm assuming that you are an adult and setting aside the evidence that you've given us thus far that you're a snobby little kid. Either way, grow up.
     
  16. GMC 2500 4X4 and you got it made baby

  18. I thought that made perfect sense on its own, except it didn't at all.<!-- Signature -->
     
  19. well first of all- its opinion-and how can it make sense if it doesn`t second of all my gmc has over 400hp -6 speed- V8 diesel 44" tires and lots of other awesome stuff- so ... it can beat this ricer burner anyday!

  22. Cool Truck MEH.

    But I'm afraid that you won't be beating any WRC cars in it. Like CorvetteZO6 mentioned total horsepower doesn't determine acceleration, your HP to weight ratio does. In this respect the WRC car makes your truck look underpowered. It has an advantage of over 100 HP per ton.

    I'm also interested how you built a 400 hp diesel. Is the 501 ci a stock motor or a drop in? What mods do you have on it?

    Finally, just ignore trolls like WAY2FAST4YOU. These type of people are more interested in causing flame-wars than contributing anything.

  23. ok since u guys r still on about it MY TRUCK CAN`T BEAT THIS CAR!! but its still nice. and it could be made to beat it. the gears aren`t untouchable so why not chnage them- the only reason its made for towing is because of the gears! . and by the way its not a 501ci sorry theres not such thing my mistake- its a 502ci. it has 2 vortec turbos. it doesn`t have nitros because i think they`re unfair and gay! its orange with black interior. and to the guy who said u can`t get 400 hp out that engine . go pick up the april issue of fourwheeler magazine and read about the dodge with the 454 and 800+ hp but with NOS it has 1029 hp!!!!!!!!
     
  24. Yeah, riiiight. Now I know that you are full of ish and don't own crap. You are probably a little kid and have a model of this truck or something. First off, it's vortecH notice the H. Second of all, they don't make turbos, numbnuts; they only make superchargers. Third of all, no that truck could not be made to "beat" a WRC car on pavement, gravel, or snow/ice. Mainly because it weighs as much as a house, has the center of gravity way high, tires are too big, not geared correctly, etc. etc. etc. You would spend more money making that truck just as fast as a WRC car than just buying a WRC car for $500,000. You could "beat" it by being able to tow more with it, or boulder climbing with it. That's about all you would be beating it at.

    Now, quit posting stupid sh*t on the computer kid; or else I'm going to tell your mom to take away your computer priveleges the next time I pay her a visit.
