Shocked with my new Ram @ Atco

Took my truck to the track last night for a base line run and see what I had.The truck feels better than my son's stock but I've got the 3.92's he had 3.21 gears so anyway on my first pass the truck was ice cold and I just nailed the gas with no build up.It took off strong and went up through the gears but I thought it would cross in 3rd so I took my hand off the shifter.Well it hit the limiter about 100' from the traps and ran a 14.06@94 at that point I was excited because I knew it would go faster.My next pass I made a full pass with no problems and nailed it.13.96@96 in a 100% bone stock truck.my DA at race time was -700' but we had a 15mph head wind.Totally happy with my trucks performance so far.

I was getting pretty full of my self after running last night but today my sons truck brought me back down from the clouds.Between his 4.56 and tune,no matter how week his tune may be his truck feels night and day better than mine.My 13.96 to his 13.73 sure didn't feel like only 2 tenths.lol
I can't wait for a tune the gears I can make up for with a short tire.

That's some awesome numbers for stock hell those are good numbers for modded!!! I'm sure these stock R/T rims and wheels are whats killing me.

Good looking truck Dragpac, nice run too. I wish i could get a weekend off with clear weather to take mine out to the strip. I work 2 weekends every month and it rains the other two without fail!

Not sure because your tire is 31" tall and mine is 32" so come see come sah.

what lowering kit did you end up going with? I had the 2/4 Mcgaughy kit on my 10'. Is that what people still use for these newer trucks?
