I have an '09 rcsb 2wd and a '98 2wd 5 spd 12v dually. I wouldn't want to bet either way on that one. The dually last ran 14.67, but it did it at 98 mph. Since then I've learned that I should launch it in 3rd gear (yes I have enough clutch for that) and I found/fixed a plugged fuel filter that was INSIDE the pickup assembly in the fuel tank. Damnedest thing I ever saw, I had no idea there was a filter in there until I found it by accident. Anyway, with the couple of little changes I've made to the dually it will probably trap about 100 even, which is about 1 1/2 mph faster than the hemi truck has done. If I did everything right with the 5 speed it might just barely squeak past the hemi. Hell, I might have to get my buddy to drive the hemi and line up against him in the dually sometime.
