Default hemi dakota cam choice

me and one of my best friends are about to build him a hemi dakota. im wondering what can would be a good choice. i know rams dont respod well to bigger cams due to the weight. From what ive red a rcsb dakota weighs 3400-3500... 1500 lbs lighter than a rcsb hemi. help me out here. were goin for low 12s all motor.

i hear you...the hemi is such a good upgrade that they feel it's enough I guess... you can use a bigger cam because of the weight savings but tuning is the key... we're about ready to do a hemi swap into a 5.9 equipped dak as well...
