Well actually a c6 vette is more like $40k, a z06 is about $70k, and a zr1 is about $120k. And I thought an RT was like $35k.

And even a highly built turbo'd ram would never hang with a zr1, and probably not a z06 either. A c6 yes that's possible.

I got mine for 28k actually so your saying 40k into the the ram and the vette would still be faster i doubt that cornering yes straight run no way 40k will buy you lots of goodies.But i love my truck and dont care if i wanted a vette i would buy one but i cant stand vettes never could

I think if they can make a grand Cherokee beat a corvette then they can definitely make a ram beat it too.

Yeah I see your points, could make it as fast in the 1/4 mile, but would never hang with a vette in the other categories. I love vette's but will never own one, I have to have a truck, I think I'd go crazy if I didn't have one lol. And trucks can be fast, but you're still starting from a worse platform.

Of course you can make anything fast...were talking stock for stock. I have cars that will drill vettes also. I would like to know which STOCK sports cars my STOCK r/t is faster then? Let me tell you i would be really curious on this one. Like icywhite said..its a truck, its not fast. And if you payed anywhere over $30k..even over $28, for an r/t in this economy you got takin.

I had a Vette on my right side for a while early this morning going west on 380 (BFE) and I decided to give him a run at one of the red lights before we got to town. I hung it in his ass until a little red BMW left both of us like we were sitting still. At this time we was doing around 90-95+mph and still accelerating nose to nose and this little red sombisquit eater just blew the doors off both of us from out of no where. That was the faster car we are always on the lookout in my neck of the woods, this morning.

Now if i can get my hands on some rockets to strap to the back of this thing...
