    You might see a "Lightning" run 14's, but it can be only one ot two things going on in that situation.

    A. The driver can't drive worth a damn.
    or

    B. It isn't a real Lightning.

    A lot of people will disgrace the truck by badging and adding the ground effects kit to a standard flare side F150.
    how can you badly drive an automatic in a straight line?

    I just know the couple that I raced were close at the start but fell back quickly. I looked on a couple of sites and they all were about 13.5 for stock lightning. That's better than what I thought they were stock. I even found some modded ones running 9's in the 1/4! Now I know why it's my favorite sport truck. To bad the SRT-10 is faster stock. They were like 13.3. Not much difference for over 100HP more!!!

    this debate is similar to a modded f body vs. terminator debate.

    if the pulley on the lightning is changed, then some f bodies MAY become embarassed (if they are lightly modded).

    My friend had a civic hatch back yes i know the most ricer car ever anyway, it dynoed in at 300+fwhp and like 240fwtrq and he ran a 12.4 at the track his interior was stripped and it was a v-tec turbo but it doesnt take that much for a 2200 pound car to run 12's.

    That's why I like the Lightnings over the SRT-10 trucks. Just swap a pulley and they are history.

    What my brother didn't tell you about that 03 cobra was he had 500rwhp(not sure about the tq) and I have 400rwhp and 465ft/tq and from 70 to about 115-120 mph we was side by side than after I shifted to 5th it was over the cobra walked me bad. But I guess I still lost but I gave a car with 100 more hp than me a good run for his money.

    Wow you are truely ignorant like your friend 2000T/A GURU. You've obviously never tried to place 500+ RWTQ to the ground on a street tire, but hey I understand you drive a LSx car.

    I wish you guys were local, so I could show you exactly what a Lightning is capable of. They handle great, accellerate even better, and brake just fine.

    Also, there was a question before about the 8.6 time I posted, that wasn't a typo that was an 1/8th mile quote. That was also when my truck was bone stock. I haven't been back to the track since the pully swap and tune.

    Yes, 2000T/A Guru, the TA can be made a lot faster, but your talking the difference of 2000lbs here. I would hope with the same HP and TQ numbers that the TA would be a faster car. If not then something is definantly wrong.

    LOL, my brother's car is pretty quick now since the turbo, but if I had a convertor and DR's I'd still out 60' his ass. I'm still making more power then him with a 5.4S/C with a 6# pully swap. But yes he has me beat due to weight.

    I thought the kid was on your side?

    An SRT-10 is a joke when comparing power to power & price to price. The Lightning wins overall.
