I agree, they have to have more mods that they didn't tell you about are you just really suck at driving. My buddy has a Chevy SS and I out ran him, the Tundra is a fast truck but you should still beat it with a decent launch.

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.

i to raced a tundra and i beat him by 2 truck lengths i have a magnaflow muffler a cai 2 '' drop on the rear but i think its cause my calipers are red as to why i beat him lol j/k ya learning to launch is a big thing with these trucks 1 if you take taction control off your going to spin 2 leave it on your going to bite but get a sloppy take off. So if your serious then bring an air pump take about 15 pounds of air out of back tires take off traction control and practice also glad you did not go past 100 cause at 105 these bad boys give up (come on super chips)

with traction control on

with it off


hope this helps

RT 0.60 5.7 seconds. A bad launch a lot of wheel spin your 0.60 could change to 6.4 or 6.5, that is a big differance. You should beat those trucks or at least stay close to them. If they are running them at the track I would bet they are both tuned also. Get that launch down. You can't punch it to the floor.

Driver mod makes a big difference. Once you have some time behind the wheel and how the truck responds you should see a difference in your 60ft.

I think you guys are right, I just need some more practice. I've only driven my truck about 1,500 miles, and these were my first races. I'd never practiced taking off before because I'm afraid of ruining my tires too quickly. And, I'm afraid my truck is gonna end up having problems if I always keep the pedal on the floor.

I suggest you find yourself an actual Track FIRST!
You learn a LOT at street legal nights from the regulars ! plus its safe and LEGAL
all you need is a helmet and $25

My first run last July was dismal 15.3, almost stock (non R/T with 3.55's)
I've learned a lot since then and I'm down to 13.8's with minor mods
and got my reaction times to less then .100th of a second

I've even beat much faster cars just by cutting a better light, like SRT8's and Mustang GT's
left lane was a Subaru STi with a quicker ET, but I won by .0724





I've beat both those trucks (SS Chevy and Tundra) with the same mods at the track easily, and that's with my RCSB 4x4 with crappy 3.55 gears
it's amazing what you can achieve with just Intake,Exhaust, Tune and Tires...





Man I wish I had an R/T !
