06 vs. 07 hemi ram?
just wondering what differences there are that would affect performance, i have an 06 hemi ram 1500, and along with every other 06 i know of they have alot of trouble burnin the tires, my buddy has the same truck but 07, and it seems to have quite a bit more pep and burns the tires without hesitation, we have a couple 07's at work and same with those too, does anyone know what is different?

talked to dealer about it and he said the only thing he could see is if the made some updates in the computer programming? any one know of anything like this?

Burning tires
There are allot of variables from what type of oil to what gear ratio in the rear. I have a 06' 2500 SLT 4x4 with a 410 in the rear and still light up the tires on dry pavement.

theres 2 for sure everything the same, my 06 and buddies 07, same truck 1500 hemi, quad cab, mine slt his sl, same gear ratio, 3.55, same tire size(both oversize) same exhaust setup, both have everything else stock, and we both use same oil and filter, his lights em right up and mine dont even try to, every other 06 1500 that ive seen or tried dont burn, every 07 ive tried does

With that said It could be the posi-lock in the differential or something in the transmission.

i had a hunch its somethin with the transmission, i would rule out rear end cuz its brand new not even 5000 kms on it i dont think since i replaced it,
thanks alot for the help

The service manger in Nova Scotia said he had replace a couple of rear ends in the past the line he told me was no one did the maintenance on them. I hope you got a good transmission shop there. Dam things can be headache and a wallet buster.
