Let me guess, sitting at a light and jumped on it when it turned green? If so you got stung by the MDS as you're sitting there as a 4 banger and it takes a second or two to kick off and get back on the timing. If you plan to dig from a stop you have to prep the truck properly, just matting it isn't a real option with the new engines.

Irrelevant, but thanks for your input. There are those of us that build trucks to go fast, very fast, and not always in straight lines.

You expected to win with a CrewCab Laramie? You've probably got every accessory in that truck which puts you over 5600-5800 lbs. I have driven a 2006 Hybrid Highlander V6 and yes! They ARE fast! But I really don't know why you're hatin your Ram. If you want to race a truck on the street, you should have bought an R/T bud or trade your truck in for a Highlander.

That's cool and all but on the street in public it is very relevant, unsafe and immature

My wife's 6 cyl BMW X1 will beat you so bad you wont believe it as well. Even my 300hp V6 '13 JK jeep may outrun my hemi Laramie - I'm not losing a lot of sleep over it.

Stop the pain and trade it in on a new Mustang GT..

You might have trouble with my wife's 3.6L Grand Caravan. I know it will flat leave my 4.7L 1500 like its sitting still. And it walks away from my brothers 07 Hemi LoanStar with ease. Not that I have raced her but we both have tried to keep up with her on the on ramps and just can't do it these new 6cyl engines and multi speed trannies are crazy quick.

P.s. I thought my brothers truck would walk away from mine a lot faster then it does.

You know, what really cracks me up is, why would you buy a heavy ass truck to street race in when you could have bought any 5 seat passenger car with better power to weight. Here is something to think about O.P. Would you feel safer towing 8000 lbs with that Highlander or your Laramie? Yes, I hate to say it, but your truck is still built for a purpose other than street rollovers. I meant street racing.
