Default Raptor

Keep trying to get my buddy to meet me at SA raceway for a grudge match with his 6.2 Raptor but he won't bite. I reckon he thinks I just might pull that "graphics package" (fake dirt) right off the bed. I'll keep after him and will post the results.

Be warned they run pretty decent lol. I guess I got ruined because the first raptor I played with turned out to be a Hennessy velociraptor. Let's just say when we stomped on it I was pleasantly surprised on how fast he left me sitting still haha. Of course I was playing around with him before I seen the hennessy decal. I think they are 550hp am they run like it too lol.

Yea and that's all I hear about 550 this 650 that. Believe me, it's 100% stock, maybe the payments on a $53.000 Ford F-150 are part of the reason for this? I think 390 hp in a Reg Cab LB 2WD Ram can hang with this thing.

I know it wasn't built for speed but those times are just sad especially when you have $65k+ invested

he can still try hard and won't come even close to an srt8 jeep... I guess compared to times i run..that is still really slow...especially for the $$$ invested...
