Hey man, I think I figured out whats goin on here. On a 2012 if you select 3rd on the trans stick you will get
1st 3.00
2nd 1.67 and 3rd 1.50.
The difference between 2nd and 3rd is about 10 mph. Using the calculations with 10% converter slip that would give you 87 in 2nd and 97 in 3rd. Correct me if I'm wrong but on a 10 or 11 Ram you can only access 2nd 1.50 only on a down shift (passing gear). So yes you would have been shifting to you're 3rd (my 4th) at about 87 mph well before the end of the 1/4 mile.
