    Correct, yes ppl say they were underated and make about 300hp stock but the truck still weighs almost 3600lbs and the typhoon SUV is about 3700-3800lbs factor in a power robbing AWD system and the fact the are shaped like a brick and you have a vehicle capable of lows 14s high 13s stock. Even though the AWD is the reason for such good 0-60times it still takes power away from the wheels. Most stock ones were only putting down 220-240whp.

In stock form however, they don't trap that high in the 1/4, making their impressive times with the launch. You should be able to get him in a LS1 car if he's mostly stock.

    BTW, these are sweet trucks:

    The only problem is they are rare and worth 10k still even with slightly high miles
