got my butt spanked!
 
well i finally raced my co-worker with a lightning yesterday and lets just say he left me in the dust. we started at 45 mph and got up to 80 and he was about 5 truck lengths ahead of me when we reached 80ish....such a sad moment...:LOL:

The same thing happened to me when I ran a lighting in my 3rd gen ram. Those trucks are so fast, I'm sure it would be the same result in my new ram too.

Yeah bro crew/quad cab vs reg cab = no chance against a lightning with your mods especially you being a 08.

A RT can keep up

Be cautious of the Lightnings around here fellas....some very very fast ones. Y'all should go to the all Ford day at royal purple raceway in August and test your stuff...if interested let me know and I will get you the info.

Lightnings can be very fast. I have a neighbor that has one that sounds wicked, but don't know what he has done to it, never talked to him. Definitely has an aftermarket supercharger because the whine from it is audible inside my house with him cruising down the street at 20mph(and he lives a street over lol).

I was next to him one day on the main road in front of our neighborhood at a light and revved my engine and he looked at me and laughed lol.

The stock Eatons have a whine to, he may have cogged pullies on it..

snrusnak 06-20-2012 01:02 PM

^Not sure, I'd love to talk to him but he's not on my street so hard to catch him. He's about 50 yds away and I can hear his supercharger over my tv...lol

Around here (Houston area) what you need to be worried about is all those chevys with 1000+ hp, 9 sec 1/4s all day..... BLKSVT we live in the same city:smileup:

BlackHemI 06-20-2012 01:07 PM

yea i def like the lightnings but every ad i see of them on c list, they all have new motors or rebuilt trannys...go figure huh? he smokes another co-workers 2012 challenger. i tried to get a single cab chevy that was lowered the other day to bite but he wouldnt...i love the single cab chevs lowered...such a great looking truck with an HD hood!
