Default 2003 QC Ram 2500 Hemi vs 99-04 SC SVT 150 Lightning.

Ill cut to the chase I lost but by how much?

Light turns Green, I'm in the lane that merges to the freeway and At this point so is what appears to be a single cab F150.

Light turns green and I accelerate and so does he. We take off semi aggressively but not flooring and were dead even, he gives it gas first and I hate being cut off so do I, at this point we both floor it.

Through first gear were dead even at this point, second gear he starts pulling ever so slowly he is inching past me, by 70-75 mph he is barely 1 car length ahead. I let off and he flies off and takes my lane, that is when I notice that I just went against the supercharged SVT F150 and I lost by 1 car length from 15 to 75 mph.

So I am in a 16 valve pushrod V8 3/4 ton truck against a dohc 32 valve supercharged v8 half ton truck that is specialized for speed from the factory, and has a curb weight that is 1200 lb less then mine and he barely got 1 car length on me? Ill take that for the extra 6500 lb towing capacity, 2 extra doors and seating for 5.

No, but the truck does feel unusually peppy, as of late.

It went against an Acura CL 3.2 Liter V6, and I actually won that one by 1 car length from 0 to 50 mph, the lightning did have heavy chrome wheels, and its probably bone stock...
