Raptor
 
Keep trying to get my buddy to meet me at SA raceway for a grudge match with his 6.2 Raptor but he won't bite. I reckon he thinks I just might pull that "graphics package" (fake dirt) right off the bed. I'll keep after him and will post the results.

Be warned they run pretty decent lol. I guess I got ruined because the first raptor I played with turned out to be a Hennessy velociraptor. Let's just say when we stomped on it I was pleasantly surprised on how fast he left me sitting still haha. Of course I was playing around with him before I seen the hennessy decal. I think they are 550hp am they run like it too lol.

Yea and that's all I hear about 550 this 650 that. Believe me, it's 100% stock, maybe the payments on a $53.000 Ford F-150 are part of the reason for this? I think 390 hp in a Reg Cab LB 2WD Ram can hang with this thing.

Seen three videos, 1 whipple boosted 14.10, another boosted 13.60 and one stock racing a .........Tahoe (5.3), it didn't show any times but them tail lights was awful close together at the end!:hah:My problem right now is every time I see my buddy that damn truck is all he can bloody well talk about! He did say he ran an SRT8 Jeep and got beat pretty good but wasn't really trying, yea right!

I know it wasn't built for speed but those times are just sad especially when you have $65k+ invested

he can still try hard and won't come even close to an srt8 jeep... I guess compared to times i run..that is still really slow...especially for the $$$ invested...
