This exact topic has been covered before.

Basically if he is running a regular cab short bed with low gearing or especially if it is the R/T version with the 3.91s he may have you as they are a tad faster to 60 and maybe a tad faster in the 1/4 mile.

If it isn't the lower gears its likely a drivers race or you may have the advantage.

If the truck is a 4 door, then you should have the advantage.

Of course, there are other factors that come into play but thats the jist of it.

PS Once i race him i will let you guys know if interested, If i can beat him , then thats pretty good bragging rights in my book, He has the freakn Hemi , I have a 6 cyl. and the slowest of them all, But it is still very fast and i Love This Victory Red Beauty and shine her all the time, Sometimes you have to be gratefull for what you have instead of always wanting more.

Your 2010 V6 actually has 312 HP like the 2011s. They took the CTS HP figures as advertised HP. Then with no changes they Certified the engine as installed in the Camaro and found it had 312HP. Fbodfather confirmed this for me when I had a 2010 V6.

Your 18's will help you, also do it from a dead stop as the torque management on those trucks is pretty aggressive.

No matter what he has...he shouldn't destroy you. If he does...then it means you didn't drive your car right. On the other hand, you won't blow he doors off either. Like we've said before, unless he is running something similar to an R/T regular cab you will probably have the advantage.

Here is a tip though...don't let your car get heat soaked cuz that will hurt your performance in a big way.

No offense, but not really bragging rights, it is a TRUCK and as such it is at least 1000 pounds heavier and has the aerodynamics of the brick.

Its not about bragging rights. The Ram owner basically said he felt his truck was faster, so now its about trying to prove what is correct. Not about bragging.

That said, the Ram R/T is no slouch...doing 0 - 60 in around 6 seconds and the 1/4 in the 13s. It might be heavy and a brick, but with nearly 400 HP and over 400 TQ, it has some power behind it..not to mention lower gearing to get that weight moving.

Once you start modding these things, they become closer to a stock SS, than a stock V6....so don't think that just because someone in a TRUCK challenges you, that hes automatically slow.

oh, i understand this, but it is just understanding that the truck with x power is not going to vbe as quick as x car with less power because of physics. you are talking to someone who has had 2 V8 S-10s, a 4.7 HO swapped and modified Dakota and whos's brother has a Dakota R/T with a stroked 426
