Wow, that is way back in the day! Well before I began racing

I know the family as well on a personal basis. I have not dealt with Sr much at all, mostly John Jr (Scotty) and he has been great to deal with at the track.

take care..

Nice to hear a couple of rams have beaten the 6.2 trucks! I have been practicing with shifting manually and boy does it make a difference!

My buddy Brad (MGRAM) and I ran up against a friend of his with a new 6.2 Silverado Quad 4x4 at the track Friday
He was fairly stock but had an advantage on us with lighter 17's and better gearing (3.73's)

He lost, badly, and whined that it was because he didn't have a Tuner ....yet he refused to try one of ours ( We had 4 )
We tried to explain to him that the 5.7L Hemi has more HP per cubic inch and that's why his 6.2L was getting spanked, all night long.

Our Ram's were both on 20's and have 3.55's with minor intake/exhaust mods. (K&N,Magnaflow)

My lowered 10' RCSB 4x4 is car# 1000, Brad's 10' QC 4x4 is #1013 on the time slips posted below
I left my DR's at home and tried to see how my Heavy 305/50R20 Grappler's would do (8 lbs heavier than stock GoodforaYears)



We were trying out 3 different tuners, so that's why there's BD, SC and DST written on the slips
(Bully Dog, SuperChips, Diablo Sport Trinity) loading, unloading,returning to stock,uploading took a LOT of our time...PITA!
but it did give the trucks time to cool off between runs. Pretty fun night overall.

Here's a few of the slips with our results so far...











Very impressed with the Diablo Trinity so far,
I'm used to seeing a 5 tenths improvement when swapping on my DR's (with a 91 octane BD tune)
So I cant wait for this Friday to mount up my little Track tires and a Diablo 93 Tune. I'll be looking for a very low 14 , possibly a 13.xxx slip


DA for the evening ranged from 2200' - 2600'

Nice runs! Its nice seeing realistic gains not just taking the manufacturers word for it.

That's kind of why we're doing it.
It started as friendly banter between brands on another forum last Fall and we got a little carried away.
Turned it into a real world tuner test to see for ourselves at an actual track. Great fun so far and met about a dozen other Ram owners and new friends out there since we started.

More results to come over the next month or so. We run just about every Friday night, weather permitting. If anyone in the area is interested it's at http://www.castrolraceway.com/

I should probably start a dedicated thread instead of Hi-Jacking the "Denali in Denial" thread

Not a bad idea. Maybe one of the mods will make it a sticky and others can post up their findings.
