The new GT's are very quick. High 12's - 13.0's. Maybe an 09 or 10 V6, is what you were up against...........think about it.

with the pipes he had on it and the GT and 5.0 badges all over it kinda hard to mistake it for a v6 like I said, I probably got lucky because he couldn't shift for anything!

I do have a customer who builds custom cars and they are"working" on an AWD twin turbo 5.0 stang with "launch control". That will be a car that I wouldn't even line up against!

anyways, i'm just in this thread to say the ram BETTER be beating the competition. all the talk dodge does about their horsepower the least they can do is beat them in the 1/4 mile.

even the 09 and 10 mustang were quicker than or truck , they were in the 13.8 ,...

but like he said, there are some people that dont know how to do it,.. or he didnt try hard,..

but anyway back to the main thread, i think any truck with alot of power when pulling something its gona suck gas,

You didn't smoke a new 5.0 mustang. I'm sure he had know idea that he was racing you. It wouldn't even be close. A new v6 mustang, would still smoke our trucks.

Your Camry must not be stock then. 2009GT's aren't real fast, but they aren't exactly slow either. A stock Camry wouldn't be a race for a stock 2009 GT.

We have a 2011 E boost with 3.50 gears and a 11 Ram 1500,with 3.92 gears, the e boost will beat the Ram by about a half a truck.at low boost the E boost feels like a six,not much low end power.

I'm going to have to disagree with you. The way he was revving and motioning he was definitely on for it, like I said in an auto vs stick showdown all it takes is for someone to screw up a shift and give up a few moments then they're playing catch up. The look of embarrassment on his face was all the confirmation I needed to savor putting the RAM in front of the blue oval, even if it might not have been a line up at a track with a decent driver.

As to the original post its becoming clear that there "ain't no replacement for displacement" when using a truck as a truck. The Hemi has outperformed the 5.0 and Ecoboost in towing efficiency in several tests and the truck rides much better due to the coil over suspension.

LOL I can believe that the Ram beat the Mustang I have seen it before, it happens from time to time and its great to put a truck up against a car and beat it. SO I beat a 5.0 once with a chevy celebirty 2.8 that was sweet and the kid was shock lol sometimes you get the ones who can't drive the best and beat them with something that realy should walk away from thats street racing LMAO!!
