    Death by Dodge

    Well the title says it all. My friend comes into work today with his new Dodge SRT10 Ram. He claims 500hp and around 525tq,(haven't looked it up yet), but says it weighs in at about 7k. I figure why not see how I stack up against this beast so after work we take them out on 41A. The first race was from a roll from about 20 because we couldn't find a light and he immediately jumps out about 2 cars and stayed there, he might have gained another half before I let off. The second was from a dig and we both spun but he stayed in front by about a half a car, I was able to pull up to his door but that's about as far as I got. I can't say that I really expected to win but I wanted to see how I'd do against this truck. My current mods are lid,SSRA, MAC ORY, and Hooker cat-back.

    Interesting....I've beaten 2 of the new SRT10s now. Wasn't close either. Does he have anything done to the truck??

    wow I would have thought you were going to rape him. After I read the story I thought your ride was bone stock and needed a tune up lol. Got one of those V6 Z28's?

    Just kidding...ask him if anything is done to the truck, because this race sounds weird...

    His truck is stock, I just need a driver mod jk. I do need a tune, but after that and SFC's I'll be done with mods till after my next deployment. If after the tune I can launch right I should be able to take him, but when we raced from a dig we both spun and then pretty much hooked at the same time. He didn't walk away from me but he kept his nose up front by about half a car and I only gained a little before we shut it down due to upcoming traffic. I'm not making no where near the power as most of you guys here so I'm a little satisfied with how it did for the day.

    I was door to door with a Quad Cab SRT-10 with my 240SX with only 250whp (BPU power). Was the guy modded at all? I think with a full bolt ons LS1 you should be able to give a stock one a run for it's money. They have an impressive engine, but they weigh too much. In general.... they're a 13s truck in stock form.

    with full bolt ons yes but he still has quite a bit before full bolt ons. hell even i am looking at alot of money before actually hitting full bolt ons.

    alright I'll run him again tomorrow on a better strip. hell if I can get away with it I'll run him on the flight line, none of our acft are back from port yet so it's empty for the week. I'll let you all know what happens, I think if I launched better instead of fish tailing it I would of kept my nose out front. No more excuses other than better driver mod. With a tune I know I'll be in better shape against these mopar dudes, but I don't expect to be kill'n them left and right. I also have a friendly race coming up against my other buddies 06' Daytona Charger. This one I'm not really worried about and plan to race him at the local track.

    Yeah it's stock, if I do stall it, it'll be be 2000-2200. I don't really want it much higher than that, also eventually I'll swap the gears out for 3.42's but that probably won't happen any time soon. I've got a lot of things to take care of around the house right now. I asked my buddy if he wanted to run again but he said maybe later, every one was giving him shit for spinning so I humbled myself and told them all that we both spun pretty bad. I guess he didn't notice.

    Uh a 2000 or 2200 stall isnt even worth it. The stock stall is 1800.

    Hum my research says 1400..... I'm going with a 2400 and 3:73 gears with a tune. My buddy ran 12.83 with that set up and I would be happy with that... Get gears at least about 4 to $500 installed. Look at me starting to sound like I know what I'm talking about. I guess if you can't make it fake it :-)

    you actually did pretty damn good considering your mods, no LT's, no Tune for LT's, No Stall, No Gears and went up against a 500hp truck granted heavy but fast. As stated above with just gears and stall you will own him and LT's with a tune and its gonna be or should be fairly easy win. I would be shocked with my car and the mods i have just to keep up with one they arent slow what so ever.

    Was it the 4 door one or the 2 door ? 4 door is Automatic and Slower & heavier. And the 2 door is 6 speed manual pretty quick.
