Ram express 1/4 mile times
 
My truck is a 2012 single cab ram. Im not sure on thenrear gear it doesnt say on the sticker. My first run was a 14.6 @ 92 with a 2.1 60 ft. Second run was just abt identical. Not to bad for bone stock. Will post some vids later

That is pretty quick...good 60 ft!

thaks..I think the truck had a little more in it but only made two passes. Pretty sure a 14.5 or 14.4 could be done it was pretty hot outside and had a little head wind. just a baseline time for future mods pretty happy tho

I ran mine last night.

Best I did was 15.01 at 94 mph
60ft was 2.3...I spun well passed the 60ft all through 1st and 2nd I heard 3rd kinda screeching a bit as well.

The elevation where I live is 3,600 ft above sea level. I am sure I would be at 14.01 at 0 elevation!

I have 3.92 gears.

Currently looking into a 17" wheel package with some sticky tires. Hopefully my 60ft will be brought down and 14.5 (13.5 corrected) ET will be mine.

at least you know you can take out Raptors with custom tuning easily...

Went to zmax in concord, nc on saturday the 17th. 2011 Express RCSB 2wd. Replaced the muffler with a y-pipe, that's the only thing done to the truck. I took the spare tire and tailgate off. Ran 6 runs. in order: 14.21 @99.25; 14.28@99.27; 14.32@98.93; 14.35@99.16; 14.36@99.31; 14.35@98.48. Got a little slower as the temp got higher. My best 60' was 2.206. I would like to know what you are doing for your launch. This is the 14.28, the best one that i got on video.

don't know why that video isn't embedded, but that link is for my youtube video. also my Youtube name is rcweimer so you can search for it that way. there are 3 videos of my smacking down a hyundai genesis coupe, a toyota tundra, and a late 70's firebird.

Wow! To the OP, you ran the same ET as my buddy's stock 2011 RT and you had a quicker 60 ft. Our track is at sea level, too.
