dodge ram gets better times on a track than camaro? true ??

Ok so first off let me start off by saying this story came from a guy who "knows everything" if you know what I mean. take that with a grain of salt. but today he tells me and my buddy who also has a camaro that on one of the car shows on tv they took a ss camaro and ran it on a road course and then took a 2007 or 2008 dodge ram with a hemi and ran the same road course with same driver and got better lap times. shocked, they did it again with a different driver to repeat the try in each and had same result.
Now I know the camaro is not a road course car, neither is a dodge ram. I also know the camaro breaks the tires loose pretty easy on the turns of a road course. But really? did this happen? Its hard for me to believe. anyone?
would love to tell this jack wagon hes full of it. but hey you never know

A Dodge Ram SRT10 regular cab(6-speed) with racing slicks, lowered, etc. and Michael Schumacher at the wheel should handily beat a stock V6 automatic Camaro, with your mother-in-law at the helm, at nearly any track.

No really, I can actually see a close race at the track with a SRT10 Ram and a V6 Camaro. Car and Driver road tested a used one(best buys under $25k) and it handled suprisingly well around Laguna Seca Raceway.

it wasnt even the v6 so he says.
was supposedly on speed, on one of the car myth buster shows or something. I dont know. didnt see it so dont know
I cant fathom it. I know how my ss runs and no way a dodge ram with the base v8 is going to out run it, let alone out handle it. just my opinion

If the road course is logging roads with washed out bridges, I could see that. Otherwise, ummmmmmm no.

The Ram was either heavily modified, or the guy in the Camaro was sandbaging.

I've got a Ram 2500 Hemi, and there is no way in God's Green Earth that my truck is going to be faster than my Camaro (V-6 or V-8). For a truck, I'd say my truck does pretty well, but you will never see me run it against the Camaro. Your "buddy" is full of it.

Well, I a have a '10 Ram Crew Hemi, that is chipped...it does have some juice, but would not beat my '11 RS/SS convertible with the L99! The truck is very quick, but compared to the truck, the car is insane!

your guy is full of it.
1. why would anyone on tv ever compare a truck and a sports car for any reason? they would compare similar cars or similar trucks, but not one vs the other.
2. theres no way the ram posted better times at a track than a camaro, they are not that fast, even with the Hemi, and a road course? talk about body roll

srt10 ram shortbox could be a good run for an L99 camaro.

also if you had a reg cab s\b ram with a hemi it probably could give a v6 camaro a run.

The 360 is NOT a HEMI. It was the Magnum powerplant Dodge trucks had for awhile. 5.9L = 360 ci. 5.7L = 350 ci. Now I really wonder about said "idiot"...!

The only time I've ever seen a show where a truck beat a Camaro SS around a track was Top Gear; even then, it was NOT a direct comparison. The Maloo was mentioned (as being faster) at the end of the episode where they compared the Camaro SS (L99, I think) with a Mercedes AMG something-or-other.

The Maloo isn't even really a truck, it's listed as a "coupe utility" (a-la El Camino). The Maloo is built on the Zeta platform and also uses the LS3 as its powerplant where it makes 425hp. It's a ghastly looking thing, imo.

Obviously, I'm just mentioning this for sh--ts and giggles.
