PM replied kman. It will be nice to play with some trucks instead of trying to tree the crap out of faster cars just to make it close. I really want to race an ecodueche, I'm dying to see what the outcome would be.

If I wasn't going away camping this weekend I would for sure be down for this and could easily get some of my buds out too. I want to destroy a civic down the line and then tow it back to the pits in shame.

Good night at the track last night. It was nice meeting Keith and Chris and seeing the outcome of the race between the two trucks. It was surpisingly even, within 100ths all the way through the slip.
I didn't break any records, just went for some fun runs, but I ran a best of 14.4 then it got too busy to bother going out any more. I did throw the dr's on, I only picked up 2/10, I think they show better results if I do the rest of the prep, I was too tired to go through all that though. I did lay a whoop'n on a few sports cars though, and won most of the reaction time battles. Keith and I watched the last half hour or so to see the Ecoboost and the RAM that had lined up, they were almost dead even at high 15's, I wanted a piece of the Furd so bad. I ran into a couple guys at the Tim's on the way home, guy had a RC SB 2wd Silverado that was running mid 14's, I would have liked to line up against him, it would have been a good race.
All in all it was a good night, had fun, nothing broke, met some new people, ate some rice, and now I can't wiat to hear how things go with the Dart.

First let me say it was my pleasure to meet Keith and Zach last night.
Great to get out for a change and meet some fellow gear heads lol.

I was honestly surprised at the outcome of the couple passes we made. I figured the 3:55/6spd would just pull away from me and leave me far behind. Couldn't have been more evenly matched IMHO.

Why dodge/ram has under rated the tow ability of the 3:21 geared 8spds ill never understand considering they pull just about dead nuts even to 1000' mark then the 3:55 inches forward, but only slightly.

It was AWESOME of Keith to help me out with this comparison of the two drive trains.
Anyone on the fence about buying a 8 spd and 3:21's will now know without a doubt what kind of performance they are buying
And how it stacks up against a 6 spd 3:55 geared truck. Both trucks were quad cab 4x4 2013 models, it just couldn't be any better for comparison IMO

The first run Keith tree'd me BAD LOL, my first run in 2 seasons..... That's my story and I'm sticking to it LOL

Run 1- sorry I don't have a scanner

8:07pm

Left lane. Right lane

1000. 12.835................ 12.775
1/4. 15.329............... 15.257
Mph. 89.51................ 91.19

Second race was even closer cause I wasn't sleeping as much on the tree lol
We switched lanes for the 2nd race to keep things even.

8:44pm
Left lane. ........................ Right lane
Chris. .......................... Keith

R/T. .221...................... -.023

So there you have it, proof lol.
Can't thank you enough Keith major REP points

Maybe in a couple weeks we can meet up again at the track only this time we can run the old cars for fun! I want a rematch LOL

THANKS guys for taking the time to come out and have some fun
