Has anyone else tried out their truck in the dirt? Had a race this past weekend and did fairly well. I was not to thrilled about the RPM drop between shifts. My truck is stock and ran a 6.2 at 54mph in 300 feet. Feel free to add questions, comments, or advice.

I'd say that was pretty good. Looking at some old time slips, my Ram ran a 330' at a well prepped NHRA drag strip= 6.0 sec. Get a Diablo tuner and talk to Sean Powell (Hemifever) , he can probably help you out. I run a Sonnax line pressure booster, might be a good thing for you to.

Awesome! I had an 03 1500 single cab short bed with a K&N cold air and a Diablosport tuner and ran a 6.0 but my best MPH was only 50. I'm thinking the difference is in the gearing. Old truck had 3.92 and new one is the 3.55 ratio. A little sluggish out the hole but coming back on top side. Also I've looked into a few performance things for the truck and everything is so expensive. It doesn't seem to justify the little amount of HP you can get for the price you have to pay. But then again I may not be looking in the right places.

Look on the bright side, have to spend a bundle on the first gen hemis to keep up with the new ones.My dream is to get my 6,000 lb whale to run 13's without spray.

I think when I reach 63 I will be trying to slow down a little, not speeding up.
