I should not have to mod my truck to beat a lousy SS, and even a Tundra shouldn't beat an R/T. I never asked for tips on how to mod a truck, any dumbass knows that if he wants to win more races, to modify his truck. I asked for tips on how to improve my racing. A few of you had some good tips and I appreciate that.

Both those trucks had intakes, I believe the Tundra had a cutback, and the owner of the SS took out the muffler on his. I didn't think that would make too much of a difference though. Maybe I will modify my truck, I don't know. But in the meantime, I'd like to find out how to beat those guys without molding it, and I know its possible.

Their 1/8th mile times are 9.53 for the SS, and 9.5 for the Tundra. That gives them 1/4 mile times of about 14.8-14.9. According to Motor Trend, an R/T runs the 1/4 in 14.4, and I've heard of guys on run high 13s in their stock R/Ts. Maybe I'm a horrible driver, I'm willing to admit that. But I still think it should be possible to beat those guys without molding my truck.
